Eighth Chief Justice Harold G. Clarke Award Presented to John A. Sherrill

Atlanta, GA — The Supreme Court of Georgia Commission on Dispute Resolution (GCDR) and the Dispute Resolution Section of the State Bar of Georgia have awarded the 2021 Chief Justice Harold G. Clarke Award to John A. Sherrill, Esq., in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the field of alternative dispute resolution in Georgia.

John Sherrill accepted the award on Friday, November 19, 2021, during a livestream of the 28th Annual Alternative Dispute Resolution Institute and 2021 Neutrals’ Conference. Upon receiving the award, Mr. Sherrill expressed his appreciation by sharing, “It is a tremendous honor to receive this award. The list of people I have to thank for being my mentors in this field is long, beginning with Abe Ordover from Emory, who introduced me to mediation back in the late 70’s; India Johnson, who recruited me for the AAA panels in the early 80’s; and all of the ADR practitioners and lawyers from whom I have learned over the years. In addition to my ADR practice, I was a trial lawyer in Georgia for over 45 years until I retired from my firm in 2014. Now, I am a full- time arbitrator and mediator. and I can honestly say that my time spent as a neutral helping other people resolve their disputes has been the most rewarding part of my professional career.”
