|Director, Foreclosure Mediation Unit
Timothy Burr is the Director of the Foreclosure Mediation Unit which provides mediation services between lenders and residential borrowers facing foreclosure and conducts educational programs for the general public related to housing issues. The Foreclosure Mediation Unit was created with the assistance of a three-year grant awarded by the Office of the Attorney General of Arizona.
Prior to joining the faculty, Professor Burr practiced commercial alternative dispute resolution and real estate law with the firms of Jennings, Strouss & Salmon, Fennemore Craig, and Morrison & Hecker. He has extensive experience serving as a mediator, arbitrator, and mediation advocate. Professor Burr is a member of the Commercial Mediation and Commercial Arbitration Panels of the American Arbitration Association. In addition to his alternative dispute resolution experience, he has represented buyers, sellers, developers, investors, lenders and business owners in a wide variety of real estate, financing and commercial transactions. Before his legal career, he worked in financial consulting with the international accounting firms of KPMG Peat Marwick and Coopers & Lybrand.
Professor Burr also has significant expertise in the emerging area of multi-jurisdictional practice. He is the author of a petition to the Supreme Court of the State of Arizona which resulted in the subsequent adoption by the Court of an admission on motion rule for Arizona. The rule change permits experienced Arizona attorneys to gain access to admission in other reciprocal states without taking another bar exam. In connection therewith, he was appointed by the Court to serve on the Admission on Motion Task Force.
