Some Information about our Speaker,  Monty A. McIntyre, Esq.:

ADR Services, Inc.
Mediator, Arbitrator & Referee
Relentless Optimist®| Rapid, Reasonable Resolution™


General Information

A relentless optimist™, Monty McIntyre uses preparation, patience, perception, persuasion, and persistence to creatively help people resolve their disputes. As a mediator, he relentlessly pursues closure, brings a calm and patient demeanor that helps parties navigate difficult emotional issues, and has a unique ability to simplify complex issues and build consensus based upon his extensive experience as a trial lawyer and a neutral. As an arbitrator and referee, Monty provides a relaxed environment for the presentation of cases or issues, reviews carefully all admitted evidence, and issues fair and impartial decisions.

Since 1980, Monty has earned the respect of both the courts and legal colleagues for his intelligence, creativity, hard work, excellent legal representation of his clients (both plaintiffs and defendants), and his civility and integrity. Throughout his career, Monty has consistently served the legal community, including, but not limited to, his service as the President of the San Diego County Bar Association, President of the San Diego Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA), member of the National ABOTA Board of Directors, member of the ABA House of Delegates, member of the ABA Standing Committee on Judicial Independence, and member of the Executive Council of the National Conference of Bar Presidents. Monty keeps current with new published California civil case law and helps California attorneys keep current as well, as the editor of California Case Summaries™, which provides one paragraph summaries, organized by legal topic, of every new civil case published in California in monthly, quarterly, and annual publications.

One attorney said this about Monty as a mediator: “Mr. McIntyre ranks among the best of the scores of mediators I’ve used over the years. He is a ‘quick read’ and was well prepared. A good mediator is an attentive and perceptive listener. With the knowledge he gleaned and his understanding of the issues, Mr. McIntyre worked closely with the parties to craft a creative solution to what would otherwise have been expensive and protracted litigation.”

As a full-time mediator, arbitrator and referee, Monty has conducted over 1,000 mediations and other hearings and handles cases in the following areas: Business and Commercial, Employment (Wage and Hour, Wrongful Termination, FEHA), Insurance (Coverage and Bad Faith), Legal Malpractice, Real Property (Easements, Purchase and Sales, Landlord-Tenant), Probate, and Torts (Personal Injury, Elder Abuse, Medical Malpractice, Wrongful Death).

Monty looks forward to helping you and your clients obtain rapid, reasonable resolution™ of your case.
