Benefits and Applications of ADR and Mediation with an Attorney
The advantages of ADR and mediation compared to litigation (going to court) are substantial. You can often reduce legal fees, obtain settlements more quickly, and handle the matter more privately than you can through litigation. Choosing ADR or mediation over litigation also makes it more likely that you will be able to preserve friendly relationships, as the ADR/mediation process fosters cooperation and mutual understanding.
Mediation and ADR are useful processes when both parties are interested in coming to a mutually beneficial agreement, and can be used in cases of
- Contract disputes
- Child custody
- Child support
- And more
Mediation vs. ADR
ADR is a broader umbrella term that includes mediation. In mediation, an attorney or other skilled mediator does not make a judgment on the outcome of a matter, but allows the parties to come to an agreement themselves. Other types of ADR include arbitration and negotiation.
