Biographical Notes:

design element

Judge Barry C. Schneider (Ret.) began Schneider Mediation after retiring from the Maricopa County Superior Court. He served on the Court for 21 years from 1986 to 2007. From his first assignment on the civil department through his tenure as civil presiding judge, he took an active leadership role in establishing ADR as part of the legal culture in this community. He was part of the initial pilot project where he conducted hundreds of settlement conferences in all types of civil cases, i.e., medical and ordinary negligence, products liability, and commercial. That project led to the adoption first of a local and then a statewide rule of procedure requiring mandatory settlement conferences. He also provided early leadership in the promotion and development of summary jury trials in Maricopa County, leading to the adoption of the highly successful short trial program in Maricopa County. Judge Schneider published articles in the ABA publication Litigation describing his experiences.
