Mediation and Arbitration

We provide mediation and arbitration services to assist in private dispute resolution. Parties utilize these services when they wish to engage a third-party neutral to assist disputing parties in reaching agreement between themselves (mediation) or to act as a private decision maker in the dispute (arbitration).  Both services function as alternate avenues for dispute resolution, and may be a preferred option to a public court proceeding or jury trial process.
