Schneider & Onofry's mediators, Judge Thomas C. Kleinschmidt, Jon Schneider and Cody Hall, have conducted and participated in hundreds of arbitrations, mediations and settlement conferences. The three mediators offer litigators a variety of styles and backgrounds in mediating complex disputes.

 judicial experience

Judge Kleinschmidt was appointed to the Maricopa County Superior Court in 1977, where he served for five years, including two as the Presiding Civil Judge. In 1982, he was appointed to the Arizona Court of Appeals for Division One. Judge Kleinschmidt served as the Chief Judge of Division One from 1994 through 1996, and he remained with the Court of Appeals until 2000.

Since joining Schneider & Onofry of counsel in 2000, Judge Kleinschmidt has worked on several complex cases and served as a private mediator, arbitrator, special discovery master, and appellate consultant.
