Our Registered Mediator Attorneys and Arbitration Attorneys are proficient in employing alternative dispute resolution techniques to resolve legal disputes.
When a legal dispute arises, most people think the answer is going to court. But litigation is typically costly and time consuming, and turning your case over to a judge or jury can be risky. Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) techniques, such as mediation and arbitration, can often yield better results in less time.
Mediation and arbitration can reduce animosity and allow important business and personal relationships to be maintained.
Mediation is a confidential process in which one of our registered mediators assists parties in resolving disputes. It is an informal process conducted with or without lawyers. While the mediator has no authority to impose a settlement, the mediator can advise the parties about alternative solutions to their conflict, as well as the possible outcomes if the dispute must go to litigation. While mediation is effective in resolving a variety of disputes, it is particularly well suited to family law, divorce, business litigation, and probate and trust disputes.
In Arbitration, a case is presented to a neutral arbitrator for a legally binding decision. Arbitration clauses are commonly written into construction contracts as the agreed method to resolve construction disputes. Arbitration can also be used to resolve business disputes, family law disputes, personal injury matters, and employment law disputes.
