Mediation & Arbitration

Mediation and arbitration are forms of alternate dispute resolution. They are means of settling disputes outside of the courtroom. The reason for alternate dispute resolutions is that your case can be resolved more quickly and without the far greater expense of a trial.


Mediation is an informal process where a neutral third party attempts to resolve the parties’ differences before proceeding to trial. Many Courts require mediation before the case will be tried. If mediation is not successful, then any demands or offers of settlement made by any party are not binding and cannot be discussed during the trial of the case. Mediations can also be held before litigation commences.


Arbitration is a more formal process where a neutral third party hears evidence, determines the law, and renders a decision on the case and that decision is binding. Arbitrations can also be held before litigation commences.
