Arbitration is a contractual means in which the parties submit their dispute to a neutral third party or panel to decide their dispute in accordance with procedures agreed to by the parties. Unlike litigation, arbitration can be molded to fit the needs of the parties. In arbitration, a resolution of the dispute is managed by the parties and is not predefined by court rules and/or procedures. One fundamental reason for seeking arbitration is to avoid the costs incurred in a courtroom proceeding.
As an arbitrator, I sit as a neutral to hear and decide the parties’ dispute based on the law and evidence submitted. In arbitrating a dispute, I work diligently with the parties and their attorneys to meet their expectations for a resolution of the matter.
