Mediation is a process where the parties and their lawyers meet together with a professional mediator. This process often leads to the settlement of lawsuits. One advantage of mediation is that neither party can be forced to accept a settlement at mediation. The mediator works with the parties to help them reach a fair settlement of their lawsuit or dispute.

Arbitration is a process where the parties bring their case to an arbitrator or an arbitration panel. This process is less formal than a trial, but the arbitrator has the power to render a decision. In most cases, the decisions of an arbitrator are final and cannot be appealed. The arbitration process is often quicker than taking a case through trial in court and often less expensive than a trial as well.
If you need an arbitrator, call us at (913) 839-2808 to get on Stan’s schedule.
