The Tampa alternative dispute resolution lawyers at Sisco Law firm are experienced at working with parties to evaluate risk and resolve cases to eliminate the uncertainty of trial. Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) includes mediation and/or arbitration, and it is an efficient and effective approach to resolving disputes before suit or before trial.
The terms “arbitration” and “mediation” are sometimes used interchangeably, but in reality, they have very different approaches and outcomes. In a mediation, the process is somewhat informal and the mediator facilitates the discussion of possible solutions between the disputing parties with the goal of having the parties come to an agreement on the issues in dispute. Arbitration is a more formal process involving the presentation of evidence by the parties with a final decision made by the arbitrator. Arbitration can be binding or non-binding.
