Dewey Watson practiced law for thirty-nine years with Arkansas' largest firm, Friday, Eldredge & Clark, as a trial lawyer. Currently, he is a full-time mediator with ADR, Inc. Throughout his career as a trial lawyer, he tried a wide variety of cases before juries, judges, and arbitrators throughout the State of Arkansas. He is a bronze star recipient for service in Vietnam and a retired Colonel in the United States Marine Corps Reserve.

Since 1990, Dewey has had extensive training as a mediator and has mediated cases concerning medical malpractice, automobile accidents, premises liability, property disputes, commercial construction, residential construction, franchise rights, and domestic relations. Dewey is committed to the peaceful resolution of disputes through principled negotiation. If negotiation fails, he believes that arbitration is a fair, confidential, speedy, and economical forum for final resolution of disputes.
