The Honorable Eric T. Washington (Ret.) has joined The McCammon Group, a leading provider of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) services in the mid-Atlantic region.

Chief Judge Washington recently retired after completing his third consecutive term as Chief Judge of the D.C. Court of Appeals, throughout which time he also served as Chair of the Joint Committee on Judicial Administration for the District of Columbia. Prior to his designation as Chief Judge, he was an Associate Judge of the D.C. Court of Appeals, and before that, he served as Trial Judge on the D.C. Superior Court. A nationally recognized leader, Chief Judge Washington is past President of the Conference of Chief Justices of the United States and also formerly served as Chair of the National Center for State Courts. He has been active in many professional, civil, and charitable organizations, including several committees of the D.C. Bar, the D.C Courts’ Standing Committee on Fairness and Access, and the D.C. Access to Justice Commission. Chief Judge Washington now brings this exceptional record of leadership and service to The McCammon Group to serve the mediation, arbitration, and special master needs of lawyers and litigants throughout D.C. and beyond.

Since 1995, The McCammon Group has provided ADR services including mediation, arbitration, neutral evaluation, special master, judge pro tempore, med/arb, neutral evaluation, hearing officer, fact finder, and conciliation; as well as related facilitation, training, and consulting services. It consists of eighty-three Neutrals including retired judges and practicing attorneys located throughout Virginia, Washington D.C., and Maryland. Importantly, throughout this time The McCammon Group has achieved a settlement rate of approximately 85% in its mediation work. 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.
