Resolution that is in your best interest

In virtually every civil and commercial legal dispute, there are two avenues to resolution: litigation or the alternative methods of mediation or arbitration. At the Bridgeport, Connecticut law firm of Goldstein and Peck, P.C., we help you weigh your options to decide the best path. Our attorneys are trial-tested litigators and have deep experience in alternative dispute resolution as well. The choice of litigation or ADR is always based on obtaining the best possible outcome for you.

When is alternative dispute resolution (ADR) the right choice?

Alternative dispute resolution, or ADR, may consist of either mediation or arbitration. In mediation, all parties agree to work in good faith to find a mutually agreeable solution. A third person, called a neutral, helps clarify issues and explore settlement options. Arbitration is an involuntary action in which an independent, impartial third party hears both sides of the argument and renders a decision in favor of one party or the other. Arbitration may be either binding or non-binding.

Divorce mediation is an alternative dispute resolution that is commonly used instead of litigation by divorce lawyers. Alternative dispute resolution is also a legal tool that can help achieve a positive outcome in areas from personal injury to probate disputes, in both commercial and civil matters. If the parties are committed to working out their differences, it is a choice that can save money and the stress and uncertainty of going to court.

As experienced ADR lawyers, we can help you decide if this might be the best course for your situation.

Is general litigation the better option?

While alternative dispute resolution is generally less expensive, it is not always the right answer. If an insurance company is fighting your legitimate claim, if you and your spouse cannot come to terms regarding division of property  or if negotiations have failed in a commercial contract dispute, litigation may be the best way to protect your rights and interests. Our veteran trial attorneys have represented plaintiffs and defendants in matters of:

  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Business and partnership disputes
