The benefits associated with ADR are numerous. In contrast to litigation, ADR services, such as mediation, often result in substantial savings to the parties in both time and money. Mediation also allows the parties to discuss their issues in a confidential setting, to be creative, and to maintain control of the outcome of the dispute themselves, rather than placing their fates entirely in the hands of someone else.

Our goal is to provide a skilled professional who has the relevant subject matter expertise and the style best suited for each particular, individual situation. We also strive to understand the nature of your dispute and the parties' expectations right from the start so that the right type of ADR service can be recommended and utilized.
