Alternative Dispute Resolution

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) includes such processes and techniques as negotiated settlements, mediation, collaboration, and arbitration. ADR is gaining widespread acceptance among both clients and the legal profession. In fact, some courts now require parties to resort to ADR before permitting the parties’ cases to be tried. For example, on December 28, 2009, the Florida Supreme Court issued an administrative order that requires Mediation in all foreclosure cases on Homestead Properties before a default, summary judgment or a final hearing is held. Our ADR practice is robust and ahead of its time. Our lawyers have worked on local, national, and international ADR matters, and can be considered pioneers in recommending the techniques to clients as a cost cutting alternative to litigation.
