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

Justice Kinser retired as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Virginia in 2014. Justice Kinser was initially appointed to the Supreme Court in 1997 and was elevated to Chief Justice in 2011. She was the first and remains the only woman to have held that position. Previously, she presided as a U.S. Magistrate Judge for the Western District of Virginia from 1990 to 1997. As a lawyer, Justice Kinser enjoyed a successful private practice for many years and also served as Commonwealth’s Attorney for Lee County, Virginia from 1980 to 1984. Justice Kinser now brings this exemplary record of dedication and leadership 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, 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.
