Alternative Dispute Resolution

Serving Gainesville, Jacksonville, Atlanta areas

Occasionally, a dispute can be handled outside of the courtroom. The dispute may not have to go to court, before a judge or before a jury. This type of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) can take the form of mediation or arbitration.

Understanding Dispute Resolution

Mediation or arbitration can be ordered by a judge or be required by a contract or insurance policy. For example, alternative methods of dispute resolution can be used to settle business or commercial disputes or insurance claims or disputes.

These alternative resolutions often take less of an adversarial approach and more of a collaborative approach to settling disputes. They can be a faster and less expensive way to settle disputes and sometimes offer flexibility to the parties that is not possible in a formal court setting. However, especially in the case of binding arbitration or mediation, people or businesses find it helpful to have legal representation.
