Our firm has experienced attorneys who review and evaluate each claim based upon the facts, merits, defensible positions and faults of each case. This multi-faceted view of each matter allows us to prepare and advise our clients as to the strengths and weaknesses of a case. In conducting an evaluation of a claim’s strengths and weaknesses, our clients sometimes find that it may be in the best interests of the parties to explore alternative dispute resolution – by way of mediation, arbitration or judicial settlement conferences. When other traditional settlement methods have failed, our attorneys have successfully worked to resolve cases through these methods of alternative dispute resolution.
