Q&A with Hon. Gail S. Tusan, Senior Judge


Please provide a snapshot of your legal career prior to joining JAMS.

I served as a general jurisdiction trial judge in Georgia for almost 30 years on the municipal, state and superior court benches. Prior to my judicial service, I practiced law for 10 years. My legal career began as an intellectual property litigation associate in Atlanta with the predecessor firm of Kilpatrick Townsend. I subsequently practiced with two other firms, one specializing in franchise litigation, and the other was a community-based general practice.

How did you become interested in alternative dispute resolution (ADR)?

I attribute my interest in ADR to my early judicial training at the National Judicial College. The training emphasized the importance of judges actively encouraging parties to settle their disputes and the valuable role judges can play in the process of evaluating claims and probable outcomes if cases are litigated.
