Hon. James C. Emerson (Ret.) Featured in the Daily Journal
After 12 years on the ADR Services, Inc. roster of neutrals, retired judge James C. Emerson said his view of the work he does as a mediator and arbitrator hasn’t changed a whole lot.
“It was always an opportunity to try and resolve cases, and I still see it that way,” Emerson said. “And it’s particularly enjoyable when you’re successful at it… If you succeed in a mediation, you have taken the burden away from these folks. If you have resolved their case, then they don’t have to go home and think about it. They don’t have to worry about depositions and so forth. Overall, it’s a wonderful thing to resolve a case.”
