Detroit, Mich.

Age: 39

Aaron P. Ogletree, an attorney in the Law Office of Aaron P. Ogletree, which he founded, and a partner at Stevens, Hinds & White P.C., had the future in mind when he made arbitration and mediation areas of specialty. With their time, cost, privacy and choice advantages, demand for those disciplines will grow, he observes. “Litigation cases can go on for years. With arbitration and mediation you can build trust between the parties. In many instances, it resolves disputes in a cost-effective and efficient manner,” Ogletree says. “In arbitration, you get to choose whom you want to decide your case, rather than going through the court process where it is decided by the judge that the legal process generates. Civil cases can become public records, but parties may prefer that not to be the case.”

Increasingly, businesses are introducing arbitration and mediation clauses in contracts, and some are pushing for diversity in terms of choosing an arbitrator, says Ogletree. He states, “right now is a good time to get involved in arbitration and mediation.”

Nationally and internationally recognized, Ogletree earned a B.A., magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa, at Wayne State University, and his law degree at the University of Minnesota Law School. He practices business, criminal, real estate and civil litigation law, and serves as an arbitrator and mediator with leading alternative dispute resolution panels, including as an arbitrator for the Cherokee nation. He is a mentor, pro bono lawyer and voter-protection, legal volunteer. “When Attorney Jeffrey Edison moved for my admission to the State Bar of Michigan, he said I will be a social engineer. I try to do my best to live up to that,” Ogletree says.
