PROFESSIONAL INFORMATION

Biographical Notes:

During his eight years as a Superior Court Judge, Judge Federal gained a reputation as an innovative, fearless, and progressive jurist who ruled on causes before him according to the law, without favor toward or sympathy for any party, and without regard to any "political" consequences.

Judge Federal was an early proponent of the benefits of mediation and arbitration as an alternative to traditional litigation. In the early 1980's, he was elected to chair the Advisory Board to the Atlanta Justice Center for Dispute Resolution and conducted many of the early training sessions for lawyers, judges, and others who were advocates of ADR. Beginning in 1992, Judge Federal was one of three former judges recruited to JAMS by Judge Jack Etheridge, who headed the Atlanta office. After three years as a JAMS panelist, Judge Federal opted to continue his ADR practice independently and he has been conducting hearings for lawyers and their clients in various cities around the State since that time. He has been called on to resolve many contentious and high-stakes cases involving multi-million dollar claims between companies, individuals, and governmental entities, serving as a mediator, arbitrator, and Court-appointed special master. These disputes have been in the areas of business contracts, attorney malpractice, accountants malpractice, securities violations, employment discrimination, sexual harassment, fraud, conspiracy, copyright, personal injury, wrongful death, premises liability, sales commissions, executive compensation, dram shop, environmental, aviation (notably including most of the ValuJet crash cases), insurance coverage, riparian rights, boundary line disputes, construction defects and damages, brokerage and securities claims, roadway accidents, design defects, products liability, professional misconduct, high-end divorces, fee disputes, and many others.

Judge Federal was a co-author of the textbook "Legal Aspects of Private Security" and the founder and executive editor of the "Private Security Case Law Reporter.".He was also an Adjunct Professor of Litigation at Emory Law School (1978-1984).

Education:

  • J.D., Emory University School of Law - 1966
  • A.B. in Law, Emory University School of Law - 1965
  • M.B.A. Graduate studies, Georgia State University, '66-'68
