Alternative Dispute Resolution

Alternative Dispute Resolution seeks to resolve disputes between parties short of going to trial to save time and money and preserve confidentiality. The ADR process may include elements of mediation, arbitration, neutral evaluation and collaborative law. We are listed as mediators on the court rosters for Kent, Berrien, and Allegan counties and the U. S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan, and we offer this service as an alternative to traditional litigation when appropriate.
