We remember Michael Leech, AAM Past President (2014-2015) and distinguished leader in the mediation and arbitration field.  Mike passed away peacefully on 10/27/2021. 

While we mourn his passing, the AAM organization is grateful to Mike for his many valuable contributions, his selfless mentorship, and his loyal friendship. Mike will be sorely missed, but he leaves a lasting legacy.

Mike suggested that he be remembered by raising a glass of wine in his honor. Cheers!
