About Us

When we first began our work in 1995, lawyers were, understandably, skeptical. Mediation was new to all of us. Some people were so unfamiliar with the term that they often confused it with “meditation.” We had a long road ahead of us.

As of today, The McCammon Group has handled more than 25,000 cases with outcomes (settlements in mediation and awards in arbitration) totaling more than Nine Billion Dollars. In addition, this work has produced non-monetary results which, though not subject to measurement, are in many cases more important than the financial results.

At the core of the success of The McCammon Group has been the relentless pursuit of excellence. This characteristic is exhibited daily by its Neutrals as well as by its administrative staff. They represent the absolute best of the legal profession in the Mid-Atlantic region. I extend to them my heartfelt appreciation.

In response to the onset of the Covid-19 Pandemic, we began conducting mediations and arbitrations remotely within a matter of days. These efforts demonstrated that these processes, even when executed remotely, can be effective in these unprecedented circumstances.

I thank the lawyers in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, DC for embracing us and relying on our services as they have pursued the interests of their clients over these twenty-five years. We will continue to persevere through the current as well as future challenges by resolving disputes, one at a time.
