MEDIATIONS AND ARBITRATIONS

Lucas, Holcomb & Medrea maintains a very active practice in the field of mediations and arbitrations. Three members of our firm serve as mediators and arbitrators in various types of civil disputes including: divorce and post-dissolution matters, commercial contracts, construction, insurance coverage, medical malpractice, motor vehicle accidents, premises liability, products liability, and personal injury and wrongful death actions.

Mediation is a popular means for parties to resolve their disputes. Mediations generally reduce the time and cost involved in litigation. In mediation, a neutral third party, the mediator, helps the parties reach an agreement. Unlike traditional litigation, the parties are actively involved in the decision-making process and every decision requires unanimous consent of the parties.

Another alternative dispute resolution method is arbitration. Unlike traditional litigation, arbitration is less formal, less expensive, and a more private way for parties to resolve their disputes. In arbitration, the parties present their evidence in the form of documents and witness testimony to a private attorney or arbitrator who, at the conclusion of the arbitration, renders a decision, which becomes binding upon the parties.
