ADR Systems, It’s Settled.™

Over the years, I have worked with many mediators and settled many class actions.   A case I brought to ADR Systems proved to be the most difficult.  Through great efforts, Judge McGann guided us to a deal.  I do not believe any other mediator I’ve worked with could have settled this case.  Judge McGann is a joy to work with, and at the top of my list.
