Charleston Alternative Dispute Resolution Lawyer
Resolving Legal Disputes without Going to Court
The threat, as well as the expense, of litigation can often be overwhelming. Abraham Lincoln once recognized that it is wise to "persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can." Arbitration, mediation and other dispute resolution services are outstanding, cost-effective alternatives to conventional, and often cost-prohibitive, litigation.
What Are Your Alternative Dispute Resolution Options In West Virginia?
Alternative dispute resolution is a way to resolve a dispute without having to go through litigation in the judicial system.
- Arbitration resolves matters without a judges' oversight. Both sides of the disagreement agree to let arbitrators make the decision instead. They then agree to that decision, also known as the "award." The arbitration process is typically more cost effective, more efficient, and simpler than going to trial.
- Mediation uses a neutral mediator to assist two sides of a dispute in negotiating a settlement. Both parties are allowed to have their say in coming to a settlement without the higher price and headache of litigation. Mediation allows both sides to reach a settlement before or during a trial.
