Navigating Legal Proceedings


When faced with legal challenges, it’s crucial to understand the pathways available to us. We can either resolve disputes outside of court or undergo the more formal process of litigation and, if necessary, appeal unfavorable decisions.

Alternative Dispute Resolution

Mediation and arbitration serve as key components in alternative dispute resolution (ADR).

  • In mediation, we facilitate negotiation between parties with the help of a neutral third-party mediator. It’s a non-binding process, allowing us to retain control over the outcome.
  • Arbitration involves an arbitrator or a panel making decisions after hearing arguments and evidence. It’s usually binding and is less formal than traditional court proceedings.

Litigation and Appeals

Litigation involves taking legal action in the form of a lawsuit to resolve disputes in court. The process includes:

  1. Filing a complaint.
  2. Discovery process, where we exchange information.
  3. Trial, where a judge or jury determines the outcome.

Appellate procedures follow if we decide to challenge the trial court’s decision. During appeals:

  • We present arguments on why the decision should be reconsidered based on legal errors.
  • The appellate court reviews the lower court’s decision without a new trial.

Our objective is to ensure we choose the most suitable path for legal resolution, whether it’s through ADR or taking the matter before the courts.
