Alternative Dispute Resolution ("ADR") refers to any means of settling disputes outside of the courtroom. ADR typically includes arbitration, mediation, early neutral evaluation, and conciliation. As burgeoning court queues, rising costs of litigation, and time delays continue to plague litigants, more states have begun experimenting with ADR programs. Some of these programs are voluntary; others are mandatory. The two most common forms of ADR are arbitration and mediation. Arbitration is a simplified version of a trial involving no discovery and simplified rules of evidence. Either both sides agree on one arbitrator, or each side selects one arbitrator and the two arbitrators elect the third to comprise a panel. Arbitration hearings usually last only a few hours and the opinions are not public record. Arbitration has long been used in labor, construction, and securities regulation, but is now gaining popularity in other business disputes.

  • Choosing a Lawyer
  • Get full clarity on the fee structure:
    Lawyers may charge you for every action they take while defending you or representing you in court. This could amount to hundreds of dollars an hour. While choosing your lawyer, keep in mind that you must discuss the fees in detail so that there are no hidden costs to be discovered later. The fee will greatly depend upon the nature of your case, and whether the lawyer is comfortable with it therefore the details must be ascertained before hand in black and white.

  • Discuss your case in detail:
    When you visit a lawyer to discuss your case make sure that you have all the facts and figures ready with you. It can be a good idea to note down all the important facets of the case and then elaborate them before the lawyer. The more information you provide to the lawyer, the better he/she can assess the nature of your case. More importantly you can assess how the lawyer will proceed in handling your case after you have supplied all the information. It is always a good idea to ask the lawyer what course of action he/she recommends in your case, and the answer will greatly depend upon how much information you have supplied.
