Areas of Expertise

Most mediators claim to have expertise in numerous areas of the law. JHM3 Mediation, however, limits its practice to the mediation of claims in areas in which its principal has years of experience.

A. Insurance Coverage

Don’t waste time educating a mediator about insurance coverage. Hamp Moody has over 45 years’ experience handling, trying, arbitrating, and mediating insurance coverage disputes. Hamp has represented domestic primary and excess insurers in high exposure first- and third-party coverage and extra-contractual “bad faith” litigation involving a variety of claims. He also has experience representing domestic and foreign carriers and syndicates in the arbitration of reinsurance disputes. A representative sample of the type of coverage matters which Hamp has handled is available here.

B. Personal Injury / Property Damage

Unlike most coverage lawyers, Hamp’s practice was never limited to just coverage matters. Rather, throughout Hamp’s legal career, he also handled a docket of cases seeking personal injury and property damages. As a young lawyer, Hamp handled a lot of “fender benders” and “slip and falls,” but as the years passed, the cases got bigger and the theories of recovery got more complicated. In the latter half of Hamp’s career, the bulk of the tort cases Hamp handled were product liability cases seeking “high dollar” damages for (1) personal injury (including claims for death, brain damage, loss of limbs, and paralysis), and (2) property damage (from fires, explosions, etc.). As such, Hamp is especially qualified to mediate tort claims where the circumstances require that coverage issues be taken into consideration.

C. Mediation Experience and Training

Besides participating in hundreds of mediations as counsel for a party, Hamp completed a 40-hour “Learn From the Masters” mediation course taught by Sid Stahl and John Estes in 2006. After that, Hamp, while continuing to handle his docket of coverage and tort cases, mediated over 115 cases before retiring from his coverage and litigation practice in 2022.
