The Honorable Richard D. Taylor, Jr. (Ret.) has joined The McCammon Group, a leading provider of mediation, arbitration, judge pro tempore, and special master services in the mid-Atlantic region.

Judge Taylor recently retired after more than twenty years of distinguished judicial service. His judicial career included nine years at the Juvenile and Domestic District Court and another twelve years at the Circuit Court in the City of Richmond. A judicial leader, he served terms as Chief Judge in both courts and as Chair to the Education Committee of the Judicial Conference of Virginia. Before ascending to the bench, he enjoyed a successful private practice with a special emphasis on domestic relations. He later served as Deputy Counsel/Special Assistant for Policy to the Governor of Virginia. A community leader, he has served on numerous non-profit boards and has lectured to dozens of legal and civic organizations. Judge Taylor now brings this record of dedication and achievement to The McCammon Group to serve the mediation, arbitration and judge pro tempore needs of lawyers and litigants throughout the Commonwealth and beyond.

Since 1995, The McCammon Group has provided alternative dispute resolution (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 seventy-six 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.
