Alternative Dispute Resolution News

Posted on: Jul 30, 2014

The National Academy of Distinguished Neutrals recently launched the website for its Indiana Chapter - the "Indiana Academy of Mediatorys and Abritrators" (AMA) - at

Only 17 attorneys and former judges have been recognized as Charter Members of the Indiana Chapter, including most of the state’s most widely-accepted ADR professionals. The Indiana Chapter has an appointed Executive Committee of three leading ADR practitioners: Samuel Ardery (Bloomington), IndyBar member Michael Bishop (Indianapolis) and Joseph Simeri (South Bend).

The Academy’s new website is designed to “make life easier” for local attorneys, counsel, adjusters and legal support staff. The site allows firms to quickly find a suitable neutral by identifying preferred practice criteria or dispute types, navigating straight to a roster of trusted local mediators and arbitrators. A majority of the Academy’s members also publish their availability calendars online for the benefit of clients. This allows the selection of a neutral and the scheduling of appointments to be greatly expedited for all parties involved.
