Helping You With Dispute Resolution
It is often in our clients’ best interest to try and resolve their dispute outside of the courtroom. Attorney Reilly has decades of experience helping clients with a variety of legal issues, using a variety of dispute resolution methods.
- Arbitration: Clients may choose to arbitrate instead of going to court. Arbitration is an alternative dispute resolution option that is legally binding and can be used to resolve more complex disputes. When parties agree to arbitrate their dispute, a neutral third party (or sometimes a panel of them) is selected to hear the dispute and decide the matter. Witnesses testify and documents are offered in evidence, but more often than not procedural and evidential rules are relaxed to streamline the process. As a result, arbitration is often easier, faster, and less expensive than litigation. A case that might take several weeks to present in court can sometimes be arbitrated in a fraction of that time. Both sides must agree to arbitration.
- Mediation: Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution used to help parties avoid litigation and can often be a requirement of the court before they set the case for trial. Unlike arbitration or a trial, mediation is not binding and involves a neutral mediator to communicate with both sides to try to reach a mutually-agreeable settlement. Mediation can be a valuable to show clients what a neutral, disinterested third party thinks about the case. Unless the parties are ordered to mediate the case by the court, the parties both must agree to submit the case to a mediator.
If facing a lawsuit seems daunting and you want to try other options, contact attorney Reilly to discuss these alternatives. Whether your conflict has not yet led to a lawsuit or even if litigation is in full swing, arbitration or mediation might provide a cost-effective, efficient, and attractive alternative for your case.
