Chattanooga Arbitration Mediation Attorney

Arbitration and mediation is increasingly being used to resolving disputes allowing individuals and businesses to resolve their legal issues without having to go through the time and expense of the traditional litigation process. The Law Office of John McDougal advises his clients to consider the use of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) option, because it being less expensive and speedier than a legal trial.

Arbitration Mediation Lawyer John McDougal has represented clients in a wide variety of mediation and arbitration cases over past 20 years. During the arbitration mediation process, we present our client’s case in a clear and concise manner, and we thoughtfully analyze the facts and law involved in each situation. Our goal is to help our clients move past a dispute while preserving business relationships and avoiding excessive court costs.

What is Arbitration and Mediation?

Arbitration is not litigation. Instead, both parties present their cases to an agreed upon third party arbitrator (or in some cases, more than one arbitrator) who reviews all the evidence and renders a decision. The decision of the arbitrator is generally legally binding, with limited recourse to litigation after an unfavorable decision. This makes it important for parties to hire knowledgeable legal counsel because of limited court review.

Mediations are sometimes contractually required, or the parties may agree jointly to try to resolve their disputes through mediation. Mediation allows both parties to be a part of a negotiation to try to resolve their dispute. If the parties are unable to reach an agreement through mediation, they may move to arbitration, or take the matter to court. The option to mediation is available to parties in the middle of litigation or may occur prior to litigation.
