J.P. practiced in the areas of general personal injury, medical negligence and products liability for twenty (20) years prior to his focusing full-time as a neutral.  Beginning his legal career with the Haskins Law Firm in 1990, he left Haskins in 1993 with Brad Hendricks to open the Law Offices of Brad Hendricks.  In 2003 he joined the firm of Dabbs & Pomtree.  In addition to the foregoing areas of practice, J.P. also handled criminal, employment discrimination and contract cases.  He has acted as special judge in several Courts.  He is a member of the Association of Attorney Mediators in addition to being a fellow of the National Academy of Distinguished Neutrals, both as a mediator and arbitrator.

In the course of his practice J.P. discovered the numerous benefits afforded by alternative dispute resolution, and participated as a party-attorney in approximately 100 mediations and arbitrations.

J.P. considers himself an evaluative mediator.  While remaining completely neutral, his goal is to provide dispute resolution services to professionals, their clients, principals and insureds in an efficient, thorough and timely fashion with a goal of realizing a signed settlement agreement at the conclusion of those efforts.
