The Honorable Larry B. Kirksey, retired Judge of the 28th Judicial Circuit of Virginia, has joined The McCammon Group (TMG), a leading provider of mediation, arbitration, Special Master, and Judge Pro Tempore services.

After a decade of public service, Judge Kirksey has recently retired. Judge Kirksey served with distinction as Judge of the 28th Judicial Circuit of Virginia for eight years, and as Commonwealth’s Attorney for the City of Bristol for two years. Preceding his service to the bench and the Commonwealth, he enjoyed a broad civil litigation practice representing both plaintiffs and defendants throughout southwestern Virginia for thirty years. During that time, he served terms as President of the Bristol Bar Association and as a City Councilman for Bristol. An accomplished mediator and arbitrator, Larry was a Member of The McCammon Group from 1998-2002 before beginning his public service career.

Judge Kirksey 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 and beyond.

Since 1995 The McCammon Group has provided alternative dispute resolution services (ADR) including mediation, arbitration, neutral evaluation, Special Master, and Judge Pro Tempore for all kinds of disputes; as well as related facilitation, training, and consulting services. It consists of seventy-five Neutrals including retired judges and practicing attorneys located throughout Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia. 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.
