When ADR Can Lead Efficiently To Right Results
Herold Law, P.A., is committed to reaching the most efficient and effective resolutions possible for its clients. This often requires the use of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) techniques that deliver effective results without involving traditional litigation. Some cases are best resolved without the publicity, cost and lack of control that accompany litigation through the courts.
Ways And Means Of ADR
Herold Law’s ADR attorneys are skilled at achieving favorable results for our clients through traditional and other creative ADR methods. Some of those methods include:
Arbitration: Arbitration is carried out with the direction of one or more neutral third parties who serve in a capacity similar to a judge and jury in traditional litigation.
The chief benefit of arbitration is the ability to fast-track legal disputes to trial. Arbitration typically saves time and expense associated with motion practice and discovery disputes that often arise in litigation. Arbitrators are often selected based upon their unique qualifications and experience with the types of matters in dispute.
Parties in arbitration can look forward to fair resolutions without the detriments of courtroom drama.
Mediation: Mediation involves the use of a skilled neutral third party. The mediator aids the parties to reach their own resolution. The parties maintain ultimate decision-making control over the mediation process. With the help of the mediator, they bring about the ultimate outcome of their own legal disputes.
Mediation keeps the reins in the hands of the people or businesses most directly affected by the results of this ADR method. Timing, terms and priorities stay squarely with the interested parties.
Cases that cannot be resolved by mediation are then sent to trial or resolved through another form of ADR.
Litigation-ADR hybrids: Herold Law attorneys are skilled at separating issues within a given dispute to achieve the most effective results. Certain areas of a problem scenario may be resolvable through ADR, whereas others may require the dynamics of a court. The litigation-ADR hybrid case will include some traditional litigation with the assistance or reference of certain aspects of the case to a neutral third party in arbitration or mediation.
A combination of litigation and ADR has been favored by many clients. Parties in a dispute discover, with the help of skilled counsel, those areas that are conducive to alternative dispute resolution versus those that are more contentious.
