Using Early Neutral Evaluation provides a way for the parties to flesh out their differences early in the legal process. It helps participants understand their zone of possible agreement and where more information may be required to reach a settlement. In making an evaluation, I listen and consider the facts, the law and all points of view before providing suggestions, an assessment and a range of options.
Mediation is a cooperative problem-solving process in which a neutral professional helps people in conflict clearly describe the issues in dispute and reach agreements that work for them.
I will work with the parties to explore settlement options and pre-trial solutions in order to reach more amicable and less costly solution to the dispute.
Arbitration is a method of resolving disputes outside of court where parties refer their disputes to an Arbitrator who reviews the evidence, listens to the parties, and then makes a decision.
Depending on the terms of the agreement to arbitrate, litigants can engage in a peaceful, efficient out of
court resolution process that can be binding or non-binding.
