Alternative Dispute Resolution & Settlements
Individuals and businesses alike can often save significant time, stress, and expense by utilizing alternative dispute resolution (ADR) processes to resolve legal disputes. For example:
- Mediation - Mediation is a method of resolving disputes with the assistance of an independent mediator who evaluates the controversy at hand, and helps parties reach a mutually acceptable conflict resolution.
- Arbitration - Arbitration is more formal than mediation, but also keeps legal conflicts outside of the courtroom. Businesses often prefer to settle disputes through arbitration because arbitration provides legally based decisions in less time and at a lower cost than litigation.
Mr. Miccolis is a Florida Supreme Court Certified County Mediator, which means he can act as an independent mediator for parties seeking to resolve a legal conflict. He also provides legal advice and representation to clients entering into both mediation and arbitration.
