Alternatives to Litigation If Possible


Just following the cookbook for litigation is not always a recipe for success, so we look for other ways to resolve cases. Negotiation, mediation, focus groups and other methods provide alternatives that can be used to resolve cases, and Mr. Stowers has used all of them as an attorney, litigation manager, mediator and Settlement Judge.
