Mediation or Arbitration

Mediation is a structured negotiation process whereby a mediator helps the parties reach an agreement. Arbitration is where an independent lawyer collects evidence, hears arguments, and makes binding decisions, like a judge. Both are methods of resolving disputes without the expense and delay of formal courtroom litigation.

Most lawyers agree these are better and more cost-effective methods of resolving disputes, compared to spending $10-$30k to take the matter to trial. However, it does require that both parties consent to participate. If you have any questions, feel free to use the Facebook chat below, email Mr. King at, or leave a voicemail at (919) 706-5322.
