The McCammon Group is pleased to congratulate one of our own, The Honorable James R. Spencer (Ret.), who was inducted as a Fellow of the Virginia Law Foundation on January 24, 2019 at a ceremony in Williamsburg, Virginia. Each year the Virginia Law Foundation recognizes a group of Virginia lawyers, law professors and retired judges for their legal excellence and community involvement. We join the Virginia Law Foundation in saluting Judge Spencer’s distinguished contributions as a leader in the legal profession, committed to the highest ideals of the law and to the concept of citizen lawyers.

Since 1995 The McCammon Group has provided alternative dispute resolution (ADR) services including mediation, arbitration, special master, and judge pro tempore. It consists of eighty-two 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.
