Alternative Dispute Resolution

ADR is a process to resolve a conflict, a dispute, or a claim between parties. The process uses a neutral to navigate a discussion that allows the parties to be a part of the decision making process. With the aid of a skilled mediator, the parties explore the facts, issues, emotions and party’s interests. The parties can then work towards a resolution that each can agree with. Mediation is voluntary in nature, but may still result in a binding agreement if the parties so choose, and the process is confidential.

Other forms of alternative dispute resolution may include arbitration, where an arbitrator acts like a judge and makes the decision on the case. Many times, the decision is confidential and cannot be appealed. Both mediation and arbitration tend to be far less expensive than litigation.
