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

Judge Adkins recently retired after over twenty years of distinguished judicial service. She served admirably on three levels of the Maryland court system, most recently as a Judge of the Court of Appeals. Prior to her ascension to the Court of Appeals, Judge Adkins first served as an Associate Judge for the Circuit Court for Wicomico County and then as a Judge of the Court of Special Appeals. She enjoyed a successful general law practice before her appointment to the bench, and throughout her legal career Judge Adkins participated in numerous statewide and local bar associations and committees, including as a Past President of the Wicomico County Bar Association. Judge Adkins now brings this exemplary record of experience and dedication to The McCammon Group to serve the mediation, arbitration, and special master needs of lawyers and litigants in Maryland and beyond.

Since 1995 The McCammon Group has provided ADR services including mediation, arbitration, judge pro tempore, and special master. It consists of seventy-eight 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.
