JAMS, the largest private provider of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) services worldwide, is pleased to announce the addition of Hon. Richard M. Aronson (Ret.) to its panel. Justice Aronson joins JAMS after having served as an associate justice on the California Court of Appeal, Fourth District, Division Three, for nearly 20 years.
Justice Aronson authored approximately 1,600 opinions, including more than 180 that were published, covering nearly every aspect of California law. He also served for more than 10 years on the Orange County Superior Court, beginning in 1989, when the Orange County Superior Court judges selected him to be a superior court commissioner. He later became the first commissioner to receive a trial court assignment. He was appointed to the superior court in 1996. During his tenure, he completed panel assignments for unlimited civil trials, felony criminal trials and family law trials, and sat on the law and motion panel and the court’s appellate division.
Based in the Orange County Resolution Center, Justice Aronson will serve as an arbitrator, mediator, special master/referee and neutral evaluator, handling appellate, business and commercial, employment, health care, insurance, personal injury and torts, professional liability, real estate and real property, and family law disputes. He is available to conduct sessions in person (adhering to reopening guidelines), as well as virtually for attorneys and their clients across the country.
