Your Legal Advocates Throughout An Arbitration
Arbitration is a type of alternative dispute resolution method. Instead of leaving their case in the hands of a judge or jury — and participating in the costly, time-consuming litigation process — the parties instead present their claims before a private judge. The arbitrator is a neutral decision-maker with experience and training in resolving legal disputes.
Like mediation and other alternatives to trial, arbitration offers greater flexibility, swifter resolution and less expense. As a result, many business contracts and collective bargaining agreements contain mandatory arbitration and mediation provisions. Arbitration may be the only opportunity you have to resolve legal disputes for obtaining a favorable outcome.
Why Legal Advocacy Is So Critical
While less formal than a trial, arbitration nonetheless demands a high degree of professional skill and training. Much hinges on your attorney’s ability to present a strong case. Your lawyer must understand the nuances of the Federal Arbitration Act and the Texas Arbitration Act, for example. He or she must also have litigation experience, which serves as a vital foundation for successful advocacy in arbitration.
