Alternative Dispute Resolution
Mediation offers both parties to a dispute a timely resolution. Disputants may be able to reach an out-of-court resolution when the mediation is facilitated by an attorney with knowledge of the mediation process (e.g. a member of the National Mediation Board). Contact a mediator to explore an alternative to litigation.
A neutral arbitrator committed to high standards of integrity (such as a member of the National Academy of Arbitrators) hears evidence presented by the parties to a dispute and provides a binding resolution. Arbitration often has advantages over litigation: faster, less expensive and less public exposure. Contact an arbitrator to determine if arbitration is right for your situation.
Labor and Employment Lawyer
Litigation is the most intensive form of dispute resolution. Mediation, arbitration and conciliation are forms of alternative dispute resolution. Each is appropriate for resolving disputes based on the willingness of the parties, the laws of the jurisdiction, the contracts executed and other relevant binding agreements. Contact a labor lawyer for more information on alternative dispute resolution.
Workman’s Compensation Lawyer
Worker’s compensation laws provide a remedy against an employer for a work-related injury. Employers need protection against frivolous claims and worker’s need to protect their rights. Obtaining a favorable settlement after an accident depends on multiple factors: information from the accident scene, the medical evaluation and the long-term implications for the worker injured. A workman’s compensation lawyer compiles evidence, documents claims and works to determine a favorable outcome for the client. Contact a worker’s compensation lawyer for more insight on a work-related injury claim.
