Louis M. Marlin, Esq. is a full-time neutral with JAMS who brings significant trial experience in his background as both plaintiff and defense counsel. He specializes in resolving a wide variety of disputes, and is especially adept at handling large, complex cases, including matters involving class action, mass tort, employment, and personal injury issues.

He is rigorous in his follow up and will continue to communicate with the parties if necessary long after the mediation session has ended.
As an arbitrator, Mr. Marlin ensures the process is convenient for the parties while also formal enough so that all sides feel they have had an opportunity to have their position fully presented and considered. He makes scheduling and related deadline decisions in a cooperative manner that assists in lessening the stress normally attached to litigated proceedings, and bases his decisions on a thorough understanding of the facts and application of the law.
