Alternative Dispute Resolution Could Be An Option For You

With almost 30 years of litigation experience in San Diego and throughout California, attorney Gregory M. Garrison knows the law. He also knows that not every case needs to go to court. Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) is a fantastic option for many organizations and individuals looking to resolve disputes without getting a judge involved.

Mediation: What To Expect

Mediation is a process that uses a neutral third party to help find creative solutions to legal disputes. Mediation can be used in many different ways, including for business disputes and real estate issues.

During the process, both parties come together to choose their third-party mediator and appoint a date and time to meet and resolve their issues. Attorney Gregory M. Garrison also acts as a third-party mediator. Mr. Garrison uses his trial skills to guide parties toward fair options while empowering them to keep their own control over the outcome.

The third-party mediator hears both sides of the dispute, asks questions to determine the facts and helps find a solution that works for the parties. If the mediator suggests or facilitates an agreeable solution, the parties can choose to adopt the resolution. As a mediator, Gregory M. Garrison works closely with parties to identify a reasonable, effective solution.

In addition to keeping more control over your dispute, mediation is often more cost-effective, more efficient and more likely to bring about long-lasting resolutions. If you attempt resolution by mediation and it does not work, litigation may still be an option available to you.

Arbitration: An Alternate Option

For cases requiring a more binding form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), ask about arbitration. Through binding arbitration, parties in a dispute will agree on an arbitrator and resolve their case out of court. This path is often faster and less expensive than taking a case to trial in civil court. Arbitration may be more suitable for a given legal matter than mediation would be.
