Litigation and trials can be both costly and time-consuming for all parties involved, and experienced lawyers often advise their clients another means of resolving the dispute would be more beneficial. When an arbitration is required or both sides of a dispute decide to mediate, Spilman lawyers have the training and experience to assist.

An effective mediator can help attorneys and their clients avoid the costs and time of a lengthy trial. In some instances, an early mediation can obtain the desired resolution, minimizing the long and drawn-out litigation process.
