Alternative Dispute Resolution

Alternative Dispute Resolution

Hilbert Law is devoted to pursuing cost-effective alternative dispute resolution options for our clients.

ARBITRATION: Arbitration may be a cost-effective alternative to litigating in court depending on the matter. If your business contract, employment contract or real estate contract contains a provision requiring arbitration, courts are likely to enforce it and you need an experienced advocate to navigate the many rules governing this legal process. Within the informality of arbitration, there are still many rules and obligations which must be met especially if arbitration is before an arbitration forum such as the American Arbitration Association, JAMS, or other arbitration body. Our attorneys are well-versed in all forums and arbitration rules that may govern your dispute. Arbitration is rarely appealable, so it must be done right the first time.

MEDIATION: Any litigation matter can be mediated if the parties are willing to voluntarily submit to the mediation process and attempt to find middle ground. In mediation, a neutral third party, a mediator, assists a discussion between the parties, their attorneys, and insurance carriers, if appropriate, and keeps them actively thinking of creative ways to resolve the dispute—to find mutually agreeable “middle ground.” The process can create a win-win solution. Of course, if no middle ground can be found, the parties remain free to litigate.
