Mediation and Arbitration Profile for SJ Magazine, November 2009
Cost-effective, problem solving peacemakers; that’s what lawyers and their clients should be. Disputing parties should consider mediating and/or arbitrating their disputes; rather than expending money, time and their “quality of life” pursuing their need to be “right” rather than “whole” in the context of litigation. While the lawyers at Davis & Mendelson are skilled litigators and will fight whenever necessary, we believe that mediation and arbitration provide excellent alternatives to disputing individuals; both in the context of family and business matters. We believe that competent and ethical attorneys help their clients solve problems, rather than create them. Mediation and arbitration provide litigants with cost-effective and results-oriented methods by which to resolve disputes and, in so doing, maintain working and/or personal relationships after their disputes are resolved.
