Since 2000 Virginia Business has worked with the Virginia Bar Association in preparing the Legal Elite, an annual list of top lawyers in fifteen specialties as voted by their peers. This year, new electronic ballots were offered to the legal community and only about 7,000 paper ballots were mailed out to lawyers in the state, which did not seem to have an impact on the response rate from 2008. There was, however, a 7 percent increase in the number of lawyers included in the voting process, which increased the scores needed to be included and the competition level.
The McCammon Group provides alternative dispute resolution services (ADR) including mediation, arbitration, neutral evaluation, special master, private judging, as well as related training and consulting services. It consists of seventy professionals including retired judges and practicing attorneys located throughout Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia. Since its founding in 1995, The McCammon Group has handled more than 11,000 disputes, with a mediation settlement rate of approximately 85%. The McCammon Group is committed to the proposition that ADR processes provide individuals, as well as public and private entities, with many substantial benefits including effective and prompt resolution of disputes, self determination, cost savings, timeliness, flexibility, and confidentiality.
