Although lengthy trials are sometimes unavoidable for resolving a case, legally effective alternatives are available. Many people often choose to negotiate and reach an out-of-court agreement with the opposing party.
The Sorenson Law Firm in Tempe, Arizona, has extensive experience in arbitrations, meditations, and other alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods. Our cutting-edge expertise allows us to use various techniques to guide the negotiation process. We creatively help the parties find the optimal solutions that fairly represent both sides.
Two opposing parties trying to devise a constructive agreement without an arbitrator or mediator can lead to tension, making direct negotiations challenging. Our mediation and arbitration attorney will help you begin the process by implementing effective, practical, formal, and informal procedures for handling the dispute. Our goal is to ensure the disputes come to an early, successful, and peaceful conclusion.
Choosing an out of court dispute resolution process has tremendous benefits that both parties enjoy:

Our attorneys act as neutral facilitators and offer guidance to both parties through the process while helping them think outside the box to broaden the possible solutions available.
Arbitration is a lighter and quicker version of a trial that helps to resolve disputes outside the court. Both parties choose one or more people (arbitrators) to decide their case. The arbitrator should be an expert in legal matters. Each party gets a chance to share their story and present their evidence. After a thoughtful discussion, the arbitrator makes a decision based on their understanding of the law.
You have the option of making the arbitration binding, meaning that the court cannot review or change it. Non-binding arbitration can go to court if one or both parties disagree on the decision, which rarely happens. Learn more about our arbitration dispute resolution provisions that ensure success for both parties.
Mediation is a structured interactive dispute resolution process, but in this case, the person meditating does not decide for the parties. Mediators are often attorneys, but some states allow other people who have received training to become one. The mediator facilitates open communication and enlightens the parties involved about their legal rights and liabilities.
When both parties reach an agreement, the mediator assists them in putting it in writing and obtaining approval from a judge. The agreement becomes binding by order of the court and is enforceable by law. Arizona Mediation services are often used in legal areas such as family law, where a court cannot offer the time and effort needed to reach a peaceful and relatively fair agreement. Reach out to us today and resolve your dispute within hours or a few days.
