Mr. Palumbo brings more than 30 years of civil litigation experience to assist clients in resolving their business disputes. Although he has participated in more than 40 trials in the Superior Courts of Arizona and District Court of Arizona, in most of which he was lead counsel, Mr. Palumbo is also a strong advocate of alternative dispute resolution.
Mr. Palumbo has served as a Judge Pro Tem for the Maricopa County Superior Courts since 1998 and has presided over trials and dozens of settlement conferences since that time. His experience in this regard is very helpful in assessing strengths and weaknesses of cases, and in achieving early negotiated resolutions where appropriate.
Mr. Palumbo’s practice focuses on commercial and real estate litigation. Particular areas of experience include title insurance, escrow agent and Deed of Trust litigation; and quiet title, adverse possession, homeowners’ associations and real estate agent disputes.
He also served on the Firm’s Internal Ethics Committee, with the responsibility of assisting the Firm’s General Counsel and Firm Members in resolving potential ethical issues.
