Biography

Hon. James R. Epstein (Ret.) brings more than 40 years of experience to his JAMS practice, including more than 15 years of judicial service. Judge Epstein was a justice of the Illinois Appellate Court, preceded by service in the Chancery Division of the Circuit Court of Cook County, where he settled innumerable cases spanning a variety of complex claims, including commercial, class action, professional negligence, torts, insurance coverage disputes, restrictive covenants, trade secrets, contracts, eminent domain, shareholder rights, business dissolutions and many others.

While on the bench, Judge Epstein served as President of the Illinois Judges Association, and planned and conducted Illinois judicial education as a nine-year member of the Illinois Supreme Court’s Committee on Education. He served as the editor of the Supreme Court’s first edition of the Civil Benchbook for Illinois Judges. Judge Epstein’s work as a trial attorney resulted in his recognition as a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers. He taught at Northwestern University School of Law as an adjunct for 15 years, and at the National Institute of Trial Advocacy (NITA) for 15 years.

Judge Epstein has been a strong proponent of ADR as the best method of serving the needs of lawyers and litigants by reducing the time, expense and risks inherent in litigating disputes. His JAMS practice has proven him to be an extremely effective mediator, recognized by attorneys as committed to bend every effort to help the parties resolve their matter.
