The Honorable James S. Yoffy has joined The McCammon Group, a leading provider of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) services in the mid-Atlantic region.

The Honorable James Yoffy recently retired as Chief Judge of the 14th Judicial Circuit Court of Virginia after over fifteen years of distinguished judicial service in Henrico County. He began his judicial tenure as a Judge of the General District Court in Henrico County where he served for nearly six years. Early in his legal career, Judge Yoffy served as an Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney for the City of Richmond and later as Deputy Assistant in that office. He subsequently enjoyed a private law practice in Richmond. Among his many credentials, Judge Yoffy was a member of the Virginia Criminal Sentencing Commission, the Circuit Court Forms Committee, and the Special Committee on Unauthorized Practice of Law and Legal Ethics Opinion. He is a former President of the Richmond Criminal Bar Association and former Chair of the Virginia State Bar Board of Governors Criminal Law Section. Judge Yoffy now brings this record of dedication and accomplishment to The McCammon Group to serve the mediation, arbitration, judge pro tempore and special master needs of lawyers and litigants throughout the Commonwealth.

Since 1995 The McCammon Group has provided ADR services including mediation, arbitration, special master, and judge pro tempore. It consists of seventy-seven Neutrals including retired judges and practicing attorneys located throughout Virginia, DC, 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.
