The Advantages Of Alternative Dispute Resolution Methods

Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods like mediation and arbitration offer several advantages over trial when the parties to a legal dispute are willing and able to work together. Among the biggest positives that mediation can provide is significant savings over traditional litigation. For affordable mediation services, turn to Bradley Devitt Haas & Watkins, P.C. Our Golden, Colorado, firm provides mediation services for people and businesses in the Denver metropolitan area, including Jefferson County.

How Mediation Reduces Expenses

Mediation can save you money in several ways. For one thing, avoiding trial will reduce the amount of filing fees and attorney fees you must pay. For another, going through mediation might do away with the need for you to retain an attorney. Mediation is not always an adversarial process, so it may not be necessary for you to have an attorney representing you. Instead, one of our lawyers serves as the mediator — a neutral third party. This means significant savings in legal fees.

Perhaps most importantly, effective mediation can greatly shorten the amount of time it takes to settle your legal matter. By focusing on an economical, efficient and effective approach to resolving disputes, mediation makes it possible to end the matter much sooner than traditional litigation. You can save significant time and resources that you can instead devote to your business or other matters.
