Our Areas of Expertise
Mediation and Arbitration Services
Attorneys, how many times have you wanted to reach across your desk to a manager, homeowner or board member and MAKE them listen to your sage advice? When the time for dialogue is over, how much do you hope that your expert witness really understands the nuances of your case and can effectively communicate his or her expertise to opposing counsel, the judge and, if necessary, the jury?
Our industry needs to reduce litigation and bad legislation that often results from disputes that become a media spotlight. Litigation is costly and time-consuming; through mediation, CADRExperts offers an opportunity to resolve differences at lower cost with quicker results, providing a balanced, flexible approach to value-focused, practical solutions. When the parties cannot develop their own self-directed resolutions, our trained arbitrators can judiciously evaluate the dispute and issue a fair and equitable binding decision that eliminates the stress, time and expense of a lawsuit.
