History of Justus

Justus ADR Services was founded in 1997 by the late Honorable David Ward Murphy with the aim of finding ways for parties to settle disputes without going to trial. During his time as a Common Pleas Judge, Judge Murphy established a reputation as one of the most effective conciliators on the bench.

As Judge Murphy often said, mediation works �because people feel invested in the settlement; they have worked it out themselves. Nobody 'won,' but nobody 'lost' either; it is a resolution that everyone can live with."

Justus ADR Services continues to follow Judge Murphy�s commitment to resolving disputes, and has added a number of well-qualified mediators to its panel, many of whom had the privilege of working alongside Judge Murphy.
