For those who prefer to try to resolve disputes without resorting to litigation, our firm provides mediation and arbitration services. Arbitration is a private trial in which the arbitrator acts as a judge. Arbitrators’ decisions are usually binding. Arbitration is frequently more expedient than pursuing cases through the court system. Mediation is a process in which parties try to resolve conflicts with the aide of a third-party neutral. It is confidential and the participation is usually voluntary. If an agreement is reached, it is created by the parties. Mediation is often quicker and less expensive than litigation. The process can also help to preserve the relationship between the participants.
