Our clients have been awarded millions in settlements without ever going to court.
Going in front of a judge to resolve conflicts with family members, business associates, and especially big insurance companies is a scary thought for a lot of people.
Rest assured, no matter what kind of legal challenge you’re facing, there’s always a possibility your case will not have to be heard in court.
There are three ways to settle a case out of court. Your lawyer can help you determine which one is right for you.
The two sides get together to discuss options frankly and confidentially and come to a mutual agreement.
An unbiased neutral mediator oversees a meeting between all parties in the dispute to see if a settlement can be reached. A mediator is a trained professional who is often, but not always, a lawyer who is an expert in the subject matter.
When people cannot resolve a dispute themselves or with the assistance of a mediator, the case can go to arbitration, where a neutral person or panel of people hear the facts and make a binding decision.
