ADR Systems


Hon. Kay M. Hanlon, (Ret.), senior mediator and arbitrator at ADR Systems, will participate in a panel discussion on Ethics and Civility in the Courtroom this week. The panel is a part of the Perrin Conferences’ National Asbestos Litigation Conference, taking place in San Francisco.

“I am thrilled to have been invited to speak with a such a distinguished group of attorneys and judges,” Judge Hanlon said. “I am very excited to address issues of ethics and civility and how these issues affect lawyers in the courtrooms and in mediations or arbitration.”

Judge Hanlon will be presenting alongside Katharine C. Byrne, Esq., Cooney & Conway, Mary T. McKelvey, Esq., Polsinelli, Gregory M. McMahon, Esq., Maron Marvel Bradley Anderson & Tardy LLC, and Hon. Clare E. McWilliams, Circuit Court of Cook County. Topics that will be discussed include “The National Guidelines for Attorney Ethics”, civility and professionalism and what’s effective in the courtroom.

“We will be presenting an interactive session in which lawyers will be able to receive real-time feedback from our experienced panel regarding professionalism and ethics,” Judge Hanlon said. “This is a great event for attorneys who do not normally have the opportunity to interact with such a seasoned panel of law professionals, particularly those of us who have courtroom and settlement experience.”

Judge Hanlon has expertise in resolving personal injury actions such as medical malpractice, mass torts and product liability, as well as commercial actions such as legal malpractice, eminent domain and subrogation. Counsel who appeared before Judge Hanlon find her to be perpetually prepared and ready to listen attentively.

ADR Systems, It’s Settled.®



Judge Harmening is an excellent mediator. Even in situations where settlement is not achieved the day of the mediation, Judge Harmening will continue talks with the parties when he can sense that a settlement is still possible, and gets it done. We have successfully settled several cases with Judge Harmening to the satisfaction of all parties. I am looking forward to working with him on many more in the future.
