NAM is pleased to announce that Hon. Jeffrey D. Lebowitz, former Acting Justice of the Supreme Court, Queens County, has joined its New York Metro panel of neutrals.

Judge Lebowitz joins NAM after serving on the bench for the past 21 years. During the years he served as an Acting Supreme Court Justice in the Civil Parts of the Supreme Court, Queens County, he managed an extensive caseload of diverse civil matters including medical malpractice, personal injury, labor law, torts, products liability insurance disputes, zoning, real estate and matrimonial matters.

Judge Lebowitz is a strong proponent of Alternative Dispute Resolution, approaching each case with a view toward settlement. He has the natural skills and extensive legal experience required to render well-reasoned decisions in arbitrations and to effectuate fair and equitable settlements in mediations. Of particular significance is that he is well respected by both the plaintiff and defense bars.

Roy Israel, NAM President and CEO, stated “We are very glad that Judge Lebowitz is our latest addition to our New York Metro Panel of Neutrals. His years of experience on the bench and his positive views of alternative dispute resolution made the decision to add him to our roster very easy. We take great pride in the quality of our rosters and consistently make additions that will positively impact our clients. We strive to offer our clients a variety of experienced and qualified neutrals to hear their cases. Not only does Judge Lebowitz meet this bill, he has considerable knowledge and experience in the area of medical malpractice, which is one of NAM’s largest growing area of case submissions.”
