In my experience, Alternative Dispute Resolution (“ADR”) resolves legal issues quickly and without the investment in energy and money necessary to pursue formal litigation in the civil courts. ADR includes mediations and non-binding arbitrations. I have studied the various methods of Alternate Dispute Resolution and the manner in which mediators and arbitrators should approach each procedure. I have attended seminars on the subject, including an extensive period of study at Pepperdine University Law School’s exclusive Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution.
I do offer my services to serve as a mediator or arbitrator on behalf of attorneys or individuals attempting to utilize ADR to avoid the pitfalls of litigation.
