Enabling Families, Businesses and Individuals to Pursue Collaborative Resolutions
Your experienced guide through the turbulent waters of legal disputes and interpersonal conflicts
Litigation costs and endless procedural practice are often the less-than-desirable consequences of legal disputes. The good news is that in most cases, these situations can be averted through skilled counsel and professional assistance. Osborn Conflict Resolution assists parties as both an advocate and a neutral third party in mediation and arbitration proceedings. Our lawyers are among the first group of North Carolina litigation attorneys trained in the practice of collaborative law for non-domestic civil disputes. Under the collaborative law model, the parties and their attorneys work together in pursuit of a mutually agreeable outcome–before the “litigation meter” starts running. Whether a legal disagreement stems from a business matter, a family disagreement, or any other kind of interpersonal conflict, we have the knowledge and experience to guide parties toward a resolution in which everyone gains a measure of success by avoiding the inevitable stress and expense of litigation.
