Our services

Arbitration is typically a binding process which includes a hearing at which each party to the dispute presents to the arbitrator both evidence and oral argument to support their respective legal claims and defenses. A written decision or award is then rendered based upon the terms designated in the arbitration agreement.
Mediation is designed to promote control by the parties themselves in the ultimate outcome of their dispute. Confidentiality of the mediation process is protected by statute and the written agreement between the parties to promote settlement through the open and honest exchange of information.
Case Evaluation
Case evaluation is a useful tool that can be utilized independently or in conjunction with mediation or any of the collaborative processes. It is a confidential neutral analysis that focuses on the facts, subject matter and law applicable to the dispute.
