Bill Dowling was a litigator and trial lawyer for 35 years, trying over 100 cases to jury verdict.  For several years, he was an Ohio Super Lawyer as a litigator.  Now, he limits his practice to alternative dispute resolution and is an Ohio Super Lawyer in ADR.  From 2015-2018, he was a full-time faculty member at the University of Akron School of Law, where he taught courses in ADR, mediation, negotiation and civil procedure.  He mediates cases for the Summit County Probate Court and the American Arbitration Association.  He is on the mediation panel for the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio.

Bill has mediated hundreds of disputes for courts, businesses, individuals, political subdivisions, colleges and universities, and others.  He believes that each dispute is unique and that the mediation process must be tailored to the needs of the parties.  He prefers to work with the parties prior to the mediation conference in order to determine the best way to proceed.
