LOS ANGELES – JAMS, the largest private provider of mediation and arbitration services worldwide, today announced the addition of Hon. Carlos R. Moreno (Ret.) to its panel. Judge Moreno will be based in the Los Angeles Resolution Center. He will serve as a mediator, arbitrator, special master and neutral case evaluator to resolve Appellate, Business/Commercial, Civil Rights, Employment, Insurance and Intellectual Property matters.

Justice Moreno joins JAMS after a distinguished 25-year career with the judiciary. He served on the California Supreme Court from 2001 until 2011, writing more than 140 majority opinions on a wide range of precedent-setting civil and criminal cases.

A first-generation Mexican-American, Justice Moreno also served as U.S. Ambassador to Belize from 2014-2017, where he worked to improve citizen security for Belize and the region, emphasizing citizen protection, economic development and good governance.

“Justice Moreno has had a long and distinguished legal career and we are thrilled the next phase will be at JAMS,” said Chris Poole, JAMS president and CEO. “He is a true pioneer and has earned an enormous amount of respect for his dedication to law and public service.”

“I join several respected colleagues at JAMS and look forward to joining this excellent panel of neutrals,” said Justice Moreno. “Helping attorneys and their clients achieve resolution is one of the most rewarding experiences and I am pleased to be doing this good work at JAMS.”

Justice Moreno received his B.A. from Yale University and his J.D. from Stanford Law School.
