MEMBER, FRCP RULE 39.1 ADR PANEL, U.S. DISTRICT COURT,
Licensed since 1974
I endorse this lawyer. I am a plaintiff personal injury lawyer. Greg Curwen was appointed as a swing arbitrator in a complicated personal injury case tried before three arbitrators. After Mr. Curwen's appointment I researched him and saw he has an active insurance defense practice. I saw he is also a federal district court mediator. I went into the arbitration with an open mind believing I would receive fair and neutral treatment from Mr. Curwen. Mr. Curwen conducted the mediation as the neutral mediator. All of his procedural rulings were fair and demonstrated a solid evidentiary foundation. The result demonstrated an impartial understanding of the nature and extent of the injuries with a decent recovery. I will use Mr. Curwen again as a swing/neutral arbitrator or as a single anywhere, any time, any place.
Patrick Trudell Car Accidents Attorney
Greg served as a neutral arbitrator in a panel arbitration of a complex personal injury matter in which I was recently involved. He conducted the arbitration efficiently, while giving both sides ample opportunity to present their evidence and case theories. It was also clear that he had reviewed and carefully considered all of the voluminous materials submitted in advance of the hearing. I would highly recommend Greg for consideration as a solo or swing arbitrator.
