Ty Green brings 43 years of a broad legal experience to his practice as a professional neutral. Over half of his career has been spent as a litigator representing clients in a wide range of civil cases from real estate, easements/boundary, corporate, partnership, homeowners’ associations, land use trust and a short but memorable stint representing a world champion boxer in the 1980’s. As part of his successful litigation practice, Ty has tried dozens of cases and participated in several hundred mediations/settlement conferences. In the early 2000’s, Ty’s career began to evolve into a more transactional practice focused on real estate, land use, general business, partnerships, family entities, agricultural and simply general business advice. He has worked in matters from multi-million dollar developments, transactions and acquisitions to resolving neighbor disputes.
Mediation/Arbitration Experience: Ty’s early career began in the courts of Los Angeles County in the days when mandatory settlement conferences were the precursor to mediation. In the very early years, he clerked for Judge Tom Murphy where Ty had the unique experience of watching settlement conferences as a fly on the wall. It was an invaluable education that has helped him in the hundreds of mediations/settlement conferences in which he has participated. During those years, Ty has seen every type of dispute and party, and developed the ability to handle them all. He has acted as both a mediator and arbitrator, and respects the forum and enjoys the process. There is simply no situation or personality that he has not seen or with which he has not successfully dealt.
Professional Experience: After receiving his J.D. from the University of Southern California in 1980, Ty went to work for the Los Angeles firm of Brown, Winfield & Canzoneri — first as an associate and then, four years later, as a partner. One of the mainstays of the firm was to act as contract attorneys for many cities and agencies throughout Southern California. Ty handled the broad spectrum of matters raised by government in both its public and proprietary capacity. In 1991, Ty left Southern California to move to San Luis Obispo where he joined the firm of Sinsheimer Schiebelhut & Baggett. His practice began as litigation but soon his clients insisted he handle all of their legal affairs. As a result, his practice evolved to be primarily transactional/land use while he continued to litigate various matters. In 2002, he formed his own firm, Adamski Moroski Madden Cumberland & Green, where the evolution to transactional work continued.
Community: Ty has always been active in his community serving on a variety of non-profit boards including the local animal shelter, a local private homeless assistance organization, the Community Foundation Real Estate Committee, and as a board member and CFO of a private nonprofit that provided assistance to causes throughout California and Wyoming. Ty currently follows one of his passions and serves on the Board of the California Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association and as the managing partner of SLO Racing Stable.
