Arbitration

Excellent Arbitrators at your Service


What is Arbitration?

In Arbitration, a neutral Arbitrator hears testimony and evidence from both parties and decides on a resolution. Once the arbitrator makes their decision, both parties are bound to that decision. Our arbitrators at Laidlaw & Laidlaw, PC can resolve your dispute.


What are the Main Benefits of Arbitration?

Less Formal-
It is a less formal trial where you avoid the long and expensive court litigation. Instead, an arbitrator hears both sides of the case and evidence and then makes a decision.

Saves Time-
Typically arbitration provides faster resolution than a traditional litigation court case. No waiting for court dates or available judges.

Confidential-
With a few exceptions, most arbitrations take place in private and details of the resolution are not published without the consent of the parties involved.


What is the Difference between Arbitration and Mediation?

In Arbitration an outside arbitrator hears both sides of the parties and makes a decision based on the information given. It is similar to a trial but less formal. In Mediation all parties involved in a conflict work with a neutral Mediator to discuss the issue in a productive and safe way to find and agree on a settlement. At Laidlaw & Laidlaw, PC our knowledgeable and skilled attorneys Alec Laidlaw and Angela Laidlaw serve as Arbitrators. In addition to our Arbitration service, our attorneys have experience working in Mediation to help resolve your dispute.
