Santa Rosa, Calif. – JAMS, the largest private provider of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) services worldwide, is pleased to announce the addition of Gregory G. Spaulding, Esq., to its panel. Mr. Spaulding, an ABOTA member, joins JAMS with over 40 years of experience as a distinguished trial lawyer. As the founder of an AV-rated law firm, he has handled and supervised thousands of cases in diverse practice areas, including employment matters, medical negligence claims, business disputes, and trust and estate litigation.
Over the course of his career, Mr. Spaulding has served as lead counsel in multiparty jury trials, estate disputes involving millions of dollars and catastrophic birth injury cases. He has represented clients in several high-profile cases, including matters involving the Doobie Brothers, Dana Carvey and several heirs of Jack London. Additionally, Mr. Spaulding taught health care law in the MBA program at the University of San Francisco and served for 15 years on the Bioethics Committee and the Institutional Review Committee at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital. He also served for six years on the board of Legal Aid of Sonoma County and for 10 years on the board of the Northern California Center for Well-Being, including two years as board president at each organization.
Based in the Santa Rosa Resolution Center, Mr. Spaulding will serve as a mediator, arbitrator, special master/referee and neutral evaluator, handling estate/probate/trusts, personal injury/torts, employment, business/commercial, construction defect, civil rights, intellectual property and appellate cases. He is available to conduct sessions in person, as well as virtually, for clients across the country.
Mr. Spaulding is revered within the legal community for his exceptional people skills and the high value he places on treating parties with dignity and respect. He has a demonstrated track record of helping parties reach meaningful outcomes by leading with empathy and understanding the unique desires and challenges that are present in each case.
- Chris Poole, JAMS CEO
In 2015, Mr. Spaulding received the Amicus Curiae Award, the highest honor given by the Sonoma County Superior Court. He was president of the Sonoma County Bar Association in 2017 and has served as a mediator, settlement conference panelist, and discovery and demurrer facilitator for the court for decades. During the pandemic, when the court shuttered the Mandatory Settlement Conference program, he maintained his focus on helping people and businesses solve their legal issues with a cost-effective and practical approach, and he took the initiative to revise and resurrect the program with remote sessions.
I find such satisfaction in helping parties effectively reach a resolution. No matter what type of matter comes my way, I’m ready to approach it creatively, calmly and with the utmost respect to the parties and their desire to put the dispute behind them and move on.
- Gregory G. Spaulding, Esq.
Mr. Spaulding earned his B.A. from Marquette University and his J.D., with distinction, from Southwestern Law School.
