Biographical

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.
