Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)
ADR: A Faster Path to a Fair Legal Solution
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is a faster and more efficient way to settle certain types of legal disputes, and often gives the parties involved more flexibility in determining the outcome and terms of the legal solution.
Relying on the lengthy formalities of the court systems to solve certain legal issues isn’t always necessary. Because many court dockets are often booked months in advance, this can also mean inconvenient and impractical delays for the parties involved in the dispute; ADR frequently provides a faster means to a resolution. In addition, ADR can often be a more affordable way to solve a legal dispute.
The attorneys of Andalman & Flynn offer legal guidance and representation for clients who wish to pursue legal remedies through Alternative Dispute Resolution. Schedule a consultation today for assistance with ADR in the Montgomery County area.
Our ADR Services
Residents in Maryland and the District of Columbia should consider our ADR services in matters involving:
- Collaborative Law for General Disputes
- Collaborative Law for Separation, Divorce & Family Law
Alternative Dispute Resolution is available to anyone seeking a legal solution to settle matters of family law, such as separation and divorce or changes in child custody arrangements, and other civil matters, including contract and landlord-tenant issues. ADR allows both sides in a dispute to:
- Come together and clarify issues
- Identify common ground
- Discuss options that answer each side’s needs
- Use compromise and cooperation to resolve the problem
In ADR, each side has the opportunity to explain his or her needs and better understand the other side’s situation. It is a cooperative process in which relationships are rebuilt, problems resolved, and future problems usually avoided. Most cases, even after filed in court, are resolved through Alternative Dispute Resolution.
Settle Claims with ADR in Maryland
Alternative Dispute Resolution is available to resolve your dispute any time before a suit is filed, or after a suit is filed but before a court enters a decision. ADR may be your first step to resolve your problem, or it may be the last attempt to reach a resolution before trial. If ADR is not successful, you may still seek a litigated resolution of your dispute from the court.
