Scotty Shively has practiced law in Little Rock for thirty-one years, primarily in the areas of employment and labor law, medical and healthcare law, and complex civil litigation. As an advocate, she has appeared before judges, juries, administrative agencies, arbitrators and mediators, and has counseled her clients on compliance with laws and the resolution of disputes and issues. Since 1996, her practice has included arbitration and mediation as a neutral, serving on the American Arbitration Association's and American Health Lawyer Association's panels of arbitrators and mediators. In 2004, she completed a 200-hour Graduate Certificate of Conflict Resolution, and is certified by the Arkansas Alternative Dispute Resolution Commission as a mediator in Circuit Courts. Ms. Shively joined ADR, Inc. in 2012 in order to concentrate her practice focus on arbitration, mediation, and other methods of conflict resolution. Her past legal and neutral experience and training qualify her to address and amicably resolve conflict at all levels and involving a range of legal issues.
