Alternative Dispute Resolution (Mediation)
Tampa Alternative Dispute Resolution Lawyers
Affordable & Efficient Legal Services in Florida
Disputes are a constant in human life, occurring in all types of ways between people and groups. Any relationship, whether it involves a business, family, neighbors, or otherwise can give rise to disagreements. When the matter of such a dispute is subject to public policy and law, it often leads to litigation where the courts will render a decision. That can be a time-consuming, expensive, and very public way to resolve the issue. Before a dispute reaches that last resort, however, alternative dispute resolution methods can be applied.

Alternative Dispute Resolution Methods
Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) has become more popular as a route to solving all types of legal disputes, including divorce actions, business disputes, real estate disputes, personal injury claims, and more.
The methods can include:
- Mediation, where both sides collaborate with the help and oversight of a neutral mediator to come to a mutual agreement that is typically non-binding
- Negotiation, where a negotiator works with both sides who may not be on collaborative terms to work out an agreement which then may either be binding or nonbinding
- Arbitration, where an impartial arbitrator hears both sides, similar to an informal trial, and renders his or her decision that may or may not be legally binding, depending on the circumstances
Having an attorney handling your dispute through ADR is advantageous due to the fact he or she will have a thorough understanding of the laws involved and the legal ramifications of your decisions. An attorney can also draft any agreement to be submitted to a court for approval for those matters that need to be legally binding.
