ADR, Mediation & Arbitration

People use alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods such as mediation or arbitration because the process can be cost effective and more efficient than traditional litigation. It also allows for greater creativity and problem solving, and keeps disputes private and confidential. Contact a San Francisco mediation lawyer today.
