After litigating hundreds, if not thousands, of cases over several years, Bruce saw that more and more cases were being settled through mediation. Even though some ADR services were available, Bruce saw the need for more options in selecting mediators and mediation services. Bruce joined with Bill Allred & Scott Young to form BAY and to provide effective, efficient, quality resolution services by respected neutrals that had hands on experience in a broad range of legal issues.
After receiving his undergraduate and law degree in New England and practicing law there for a few years, Bill returned to Atlanta, where he was born and raised. Bill, Bruce and Scott formed a partnership and practiced law together for several years. Seeing the need for more options in alternative dispute resolution, they formed BAY and have continued to provide quality dispute resolution services for more than 20 years.
Scott has lived in Atlanta all of his life. He went to UGA for his undergraduate and Master’s studies and received his law degree from Georgia State. Scott has in depth experience in a broad range of legal disputes, both as a litigator and neutral. Bruce Barrickman, Bill Allred and Scott have combined their professional experiences to form BAY to serve the legal and insurance community throughout Georgia.
