S. Karen Bamberger, Esq., Joins JAMS in Seattle

Product liability and personal injury litigator joins JAMS as arbitrator and mediator

New Panelist Announcement

Seattle – JAMS, the largest private provider of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) services worldwide, is pleased to announce the addition of S. Karen Bamberger, Esq., to its panel. Ms. Bamberger joins JAMS with over 35-years of experience as a litigator in private practice.

Ms. Bamberger has served as lead counsel, focusing primarily on personal injury and product liability cases running the gamut from soft-tissue injuries to wrongful death cases. The types of injuries have been as varied as the contexts in which they occur—from motor vehicle accidents to construction sites to dram shop liability scenarios. Ms. Bamberger has served as an arbitrator on three-member UIM panels throughout her career, as well as an arbitrator for mandatory arbitration cases for over a decade.

Based in the Seattle Resolution Center, Ms. Bamberger will serve as a mediator and arbitrator, handling civil rights, insurance, personal injury/torts, product liability and real property cases. She is available to conduct sessions in person, as well as virtually, for clients across the country.

Ms. Bamberger has deep knowledge of the composition and function of consumer products—and how and an appreciation of how and why accidents resulting in injury may arise. Her skill set sets her apart within the product liability legal space, and her attention to detail, creativity and thoughtfulness cement her reputation as a leader in the legal community.

- Chris Poole, JAMS CEO

Over the course of her career, Ms. Bamberger has settled hundreds of cases and tried jury and bench trials in both state and federal courts. She is known for her thorough preparation, knowledge of the law, ability to develop rapport with parties and collegiality in dealing with opposing counsel.

In my years of practice, I have learned that working collegially with parties’ counsel and employing active listening are the best ways to achieve a fair result for all parties. I am looking forward to applying my arbitration and mediation skills to this next chapter of my career. 

- S. Karen Bamberger, Esq.

Ms. Bamberger received her B.A., with honors, from The College of William & Mary and her J.D. from the University of Wisconsin Law School.
