Experienced Mediators and Arbitrators

While we prepare as though any of our cases may be tried in a court, the reality is that many can be settled before that point. Mediation and arbitration are alternative ways to resolve disputes without going to trial. Sometimes both parties agree to either mediation or arbitration, and sometimes one or both is ordered by the court.

Mediation is a settlement conference in which the parties attempt to settle their case with the help of a neutral mediator. This option allows both sides of a case to work together with the help of experienced representation to reach a mutually-beneficial solution. Fred Barbour, Scott Jones, and Bob Deutsch are certified mediators.

Arbitration is a hearing that is less formal than a trial. An arbitrator or panel of arbitrators hears and then decides the case based on the evidence presented and the applicable law. Fred Barbour has served as an arbitrator on many cases, and as mediator on well over a thousand cases. All firm lawyers have successfully represented parties in hundreds of mediation and arbitration proceedings.
