Alternative Dispute Resolution

"Discourage Litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. As a peacemaker the lawyer has a superior opportunity of being a good man. There will still be business enough."      - Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of US (1809-1865) 

In today's fast-moving and litigious world, disputes are a fact of life, however, litigating them in either state or federal courts is often expensive, time consuming and carries no guarantee regarding outcome.   Our attorneys work with clients and their adversaries to increase efficiencies and reduce the cost of legal services by resolving disputes short of litigation.

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is a method of discreetly resolving differences between parties before they lead to extended, expensive public litigation and trial.

Our ADR services can be introduced at any point in a dispute - before, during or after a lawsuit - and we help clients consider, evaluate and adopt the most appropriate ADR method for a specific controversy.

ADR methods include formal and informal arbitration, mediation, facilitation, and other ADR processes.
