The National Academy of Distinguished Neutrals has recently announced the launch of their Pennsylvania Chapter. Only 9 attorneys and former judges, including Tom Frampton, have been accepted as Charter Members.
The National Academy of Distinguished Neutrals is an association consisting of ADR professionals distinguished by their experience in the field of civil and commercial conflict resolution, and by their commitment to alternative dispute resolution. Invitation only, the membership has been limited to mediators and arbitrators that have been nominated by current academy members, and then reviewed by stringent criteria, including interviews with attorneys for whom the candidate has performed neutral evaluations.
While Tom maintains an active trial practice, since beginning to serve as a neutral in 1997, he has become a well-regarded mediator and arbitrator who provides services to attorneys in state and federal courts throughout Pennsylvania. His alternative dispute resolution practice focuses on commercial and business disputes, medical malpractice and other professional negligence, products liability, employment issues and personal injury.
Tom has enhanced his skills as a neutral by successfully completing forty-hour mediation certification training at Duke University, as presented by Beason & Ellis Conflict Resolution, LLC. This training is also in compliance with the requirements for the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania’s alternative dispute resolution program.
