In many cases, it is in the parties’ best interest to attempt to resolve their conflicts outside the court system. Mediation and arbitration are two methods of alternative dispute resolution that can save the parties both time and money in bringing their case to conclusion.
Davison Eastman Munoz & Paone has attorneys who have been trained and certified in dispute resolution and bring a wealth of experience to the matters in which they are selected to serve as impartial mediators and arbitrators.
Both mediation and arbitration offer the parties to a dispute an opportunity to resolve their cases outside of the courts. They are confidential and, although governed by state law, there are no public court filings.
In mediation, the parties select a neutral third party to serve as their mediator. The role of the mediator is to assist and guide the parties, who are actively involved in the process, to a mutually acceptable conclusion of their dispute.
In arbitration, the parties select one or more neutral third parties to decide the issues in the case, much as a judge decides a case. The parties submit information to the arbitrator(s) ahead of time and the arbitrator(s) make a decision that is legally binding on the parties
Since each case is unique, the professional experience and expertise of the mediator or arbitrator can play a key role in assisting the parties in reaching a final resolution.
