Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is an alternative for resolving disputes and conflicts outside the court system. Mediation and arbitration are the two best known methods of Alternative Dispute Resolution. The Morgan Law Firm can help resolve conflicts and find the right solution through these ADR services.
Mediation involves the use of a neutral third party, the mediator, to facilitate the parties coming to their own solution for their dispute. The mediator may offer suggestions, but the decision to resolve the dispute – or not – rests with the parties themselves. Mediation proceedings typically remain confidential and private. The Morgan Law Firm represents parties in mediation. Ms. Morgan is a trained mediator who belongs to the International Trademark Association Panel of Neutrals and who is a registered mediator in Georgia.
Arbitration is a process in which a dispute between two or more parties is resolved by one or more impartial persons for a final and binding decision. Arbitrators may be attorneys or business persons with expertise in a particular field. The parties control the range of issues to be resolved by arbitration, the scope of the relief to be awarded and many of the procedural aspects of the process. Arbitration is less formal than a court trial, but the results can be enforced in court. The Morgan Law Firm has experience representing parties in arbitration proceedings.
