Larry Maxwell’s legal career spans five decades. From 1962 to 2002, he was engaged in a trial and appellate practice in state and federal courts. His forty years of litigation experience were interesting and rewarding. However, over the years he has come to realize that in most situations, litigation should be the last choice for resolving disputes, after other alternative methods have been tried without success. Beginning in 1985, he expanded his practice to serving as a third party neutral, and counseling clients in the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) processes, which can be tailored to a clients’ needs in the context of the unique characteristics of their dispute.

Larry has over twenty-five years of experience in helping clients resolve disputes using a variety of tools in the ADR toolbox. He has authored articles on mediation, collaborative law, the Uniform Collaborative Law Act and legal ethics, and is a guest lecturer at seminars and law schools on ADR subjects. He is widely recognized as an ADR professional having received appropriate recognitions and certifications.
