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.®



I want to express our firm’s appreciation to ADR Systems for providing us with an outstanding CLE program.  I received numerous positive comments from our partners; everyone thought that the Hon. F. Keith Brown and Stuart A. Nudelman provided us with useful and interesting insights.  I think that our Chicago partners (and anyone else who might do a mediation in Chicago) would be delighted with any of them as a mediator or arbitrator.
