Alternative Dispute Resolution

In 2011, we enlarged our portfolio to include an Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) division. As a result, we facilitate arbitration, mediation, and conflict resolution involving civil litigation, domestic relations, and workplace discord. With the appropriate ADR services, we are confident we can facilitate WIN/WIN Solutions for you!


Through the process of arbitration, disputes are resolved more quickly and more cost effectively without having to go to cour. Rather, arbitrators decide if wrongdoing occurred and how to correct or compensate you for it.


Mediation is an informal process by which a neutral third party facilitates quality conversation to reach a mutually acceptable solution between parties of a dispute. Using mediation between parties leads to better outcomes by way of:

  • Saving Time and money
  • Avoiding litigation
  • Reducing stress
  • Establishing a forum for quality conversations
  • Maintaining confidentiality throughout and beyond mediation
  • Direct involvement of parties in the process of the settlement
  • Settlements addressing the merits of the disputes
  • Using an experienced mediator with expertise to negotiate complex cases to facilitate WIN/WIN solutions
