Dispute Resolution Professionals, pllc (An Arizona ADR group serving both Arizona and California)

An informed public has long favored arbitration and mediation. As the complexity and cost of litigation has sky rocketed, and court congestion with ever increasing delays in obtaining justice has worsened, numerous litigants have increasingly turned to ADR (arbitration-mediation) as a more meaningful and affordable way to settle disputes they cannot avoid or satisfactorily resolve.

It is now widely recognized that disputants, in most instances, can obtain more fulfilling results through ADR than through conventional litigation.

Mediation and arbitration proceedings are conducted in private and are confidential.  Confidentiality by all parties, mediator or arbitrator is an essential backbone of ADR.

Business conflicts are becoming increasingly sophisticated and complex.  Many corporations, partnerships (general and limited), and large and smaller business require that mediation or arbitration be used in place of court litigation in order to incur lower fees and costs, avoid unnecessary delay,  maintain control over the process, have confidentiality guaranteed, and choose their own arbitrator / mediator group.

Many companies require employee, product liability and customer claims to be mediated, and if without settlement or resolution, require arbitration or mediation in lieu of court proceedings.

While utilization of private ADR is generally the first and last step needed to complete a dispute resolution process and resolve the parties dispute, it should be noted that private Alternative Dispute Resolution can be used at any stage of a dispute, and is also effective before or after litigation has been filed.
