Doug McQuiston, our first Panel Mediator.
Denver attorney and mediator Douglas I. McQuiston has over 36 years of experience in litigating, mediating, arbitrating and trying all forms of insurance defense, complex tort, professional liability, and insurance law disputes.

Most recently, he was a Regional Attorney for a Fortune 100 multi-lines insurer, overseeing defense trial offices in six states throughout the West, in addition to maintaining his Colorado practice.
Mr. McQuiston brings this wide range of skill and experience to bear as a neutral, offering mediation, arbitration, and early-intervention mediation to Accord’s growing practice.
