Perhaps most notable is the recognition of Lee's Exemplary Service given to him by the State Bar's ADR Section, in the form of the George N. Bashara, Jr, Award. Historically, Lee worked in employment law, but there is no end to his search for knowledge. Lee is an arbitrator with the American Arbitration Association; Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service; Financial Industry Regulatory Authority; Forum; Michigan Employment Relations Commission; and National Futures Association. He handles both general civil and domestic cases regularly for Conflict Resolution Services. As an arbitrator and mediator, Lee handles employment law, general civil, and family law cases. He has a way with words, in addition to being professional, competent, and fair. Lee is also responsible for providing many ADR learning opportunities in Traverse City, including being chair of the State Bar's ADR Section Annual Meeting and Conference in 2015.

Lee continuously maintains his position among the top tier arbitrators/mediators year after year. His professionalism, honesty and dedication to his craft is admired by myself and countless other professionals within the legal community. Lee makes it a point to be well versed in the subject matter for which he lends his services, and based upon that unwavering commitment to his profession, he is able to navigate, manage and help resolve complex legal issues which present themselves during litigation. I'm honored to be able to endorse Lee Hornberger, and I have no reservations in recommending his services to anyone in need.
