"Except for Section 12, I don't see any language which would get the majority of these changes to take effect sooner than this summer.  Am I correct on that?  "

"On the other hand,  it would seem that RCW 7.75.100 applies to DRCs and their volunteers regardless of whether the lender stipulates in a Mediation Agreement or not.  Would the lenders sign a Mediation Agreement without the…"

"Looks like the lender's attorneys have come upon a plan to keep this program from getting off the ground. The legislature is meeting in special session beginning 11/28 to work on budget cuts.  Maybe Commerce can get an immunity clause…"

MEDIATION EXPERIENCE
EARLY RESOLUTION PROGRAM
Doug initiated and developed the Early Resolution Program for the Attorney General Torts Division as part of an overall ADR effort for the Attorney General’s Office. Since it began in 1996, the Early Resolution Program has become a well-documented success at achieving the Attorney General’s goals of reducing litigation costs to state agencies and reducing litigation caseloads in the AG torts and employment divisions. As part of this program, Doug also worked closely with the Division of Risk Management to resolve damage claims before lawsuits were filed. In the past 15 years Doug has negotiated settlements in more than 600 cases or claims, and represented numerous state agencies in more than 200 mediations. He has made several presentations to state agencies on negotiation strategy, mediation skills and use of Alternative Dispute Resolution to reduce litigation costs.
FORMAL MEDIATION TRAINING
Doug has received extensive formal mediation training including 40 classroom hours at CDR (Collaborative Decision Resources) Associates in Boulder, CO. and 54 classroom hours including Advanced Mediation Training (2009) at The Strauss Institute for Dispute Resolution at Pepperdine Law School in California. He received additional training in ADR methods at the Defense Research Institute’s 3 day training program in Chicago. He has attended training sessions in Collaborative Law at the Seattle University School of Law and Mediation Techniques at the University of Washington Law School, as well as numerous CLE’s on negotiation and mediation.
LITIGATION EXPERIENCE
In his 33 years of practice, Doug has tried numerous cases to juries while representing either plaintiffs or defendants. Doug’s law career began in 1977 in the Pierce County Prosecutor’s office where he did criminal jury trials for three years before transitioning to the Prosecutor’s civil division where he advised county agencies and school districts on a variety of issues including employment law. During his time in the prosecutor’s office, he participated in more than 30 jury trials.
In early 1983 he went into private practice doing primarily personal injury litigation representing injured plaintiffs, and also participated in trials involving construction and contract litigation.
Beginning in early 1988 he joined the Attorney General’s Torts Division as a litigation team leader representing the Department of Transportation, the Washington State Patrol plus several smaller agencies and a number of Washington Community Colleges. Doug was also a member of WSTLA (Washington State Trial Lawyers Association) for more than 20 years as well as ATLA (The American Trial Lawyers Association). Doug retired from active practice in 2010.
