Little Rock, Arkansas (PRWEB) October 17, 2013
As a full-time mediator, arbitrator and hearing officer, John Dewey Watson is known for his commitment to the peaceful resolution of disputes through principled negotiation. If negotiation fails, he believes that instead of going through traditional litigation, arbitration is a fair, speedy, and less expensive option for parties who would like to keep their privacy while resolving their disputes.
In an effort to connect with the largest pool of potential clients possible, Watson decided to join the premier mediation network in the country, Mediation.com. “For me, this was an obvious decision,” said Mr. Watson. “In my decades as a trial lawyer, arbitrator and mediator, I saw just about everything you can see in a legal proceeding. That kind of experience is priceless, and I want to give the benefits of it to people who need a trained, experienced mediation professional. To find those kinds of ideal clients, you need to be part of the right network – and Mediation.com is the ideal fit for me.”
After nearly four decades as a trial lawyer with Arkansas’ largest firm, Friday, Eldredge & Clark, Mr. Watson began his mediation and arbitration practice in 2010 and continues to work tirelessly to resolve disputes in wide ranging fields. He has extensive training as a mediator and arbitrator resulting in the resolution of cases involving medical malpractice, automobile accidents, premises liability, property disputes, commercial/residential construction, franchise rights, and domestic relations. He is honored to serve on the Large Complex Panel of Arbitrators and the Mediation Panel of the American Arbitration Association.
Mr. Watson graduated from the University of Arkansas—School of Law in 1970 after receiving a Bronze Star for service in Vietnam. He later retired as a Colonel in the United States Marine Corps Reserve in 1992. He has served as a contributing author in various legal texts regarding contracts and licensing and is an adjunct professor for the University of Arkansas—School of Law teaching the subject of mediation.
