Mediation is a confidential process in which one of our registered mediators assists parties in resolving disputes. It is an informal process conducted with or without lawyers. The mediator does not impose a settlement but advises the parties about alternative solutions to their conflict. While mediation is effective in resolving a variety of disputes, it is particularly well suited to family law, divorce, business litigation, and probate and trust disputes.
Arbitration is a process in which a case is presented to a neutral arbitrator for a legally binding decision. Arbitration is commonly used to resolve construction disputes, business disputes, family law disputes, personal injury matters, and employment law disputes.
