At Paule, Camazine & Blumenthal, P.C., We Can Help You Decide if Dispute Resolution is Right for Your Case
Whether you are looking for a mediator or arbitrator or need a lawyer to represent you in an Dispute Resolution case, our Firm can assist. Here are some of the ways:
- Personal injury
- Sexual harassment
- Collaborative Divorce
- Mediation of divorce and post-divorce matters including
- Child custody
- Division of property
- Child support
- and many others
Sometimes, the best alternative to a trial is a Mediation, in which the disputing parties hire a neutral third party to assist them in negotiating a resolution of their issues. The mediator has received special training to allow him or her to work with both sides and help develop options to settle the dispute on the most favorable terms for both sides while minimizing the rancor that often accompanies courtroom proceedings. Mediation can be used for any type of dispute or claim.
Other times, when a case needs to be tried, but the parties want to avoid the courtroom, Arbitration may be the best option. In an Arbitration, the parties to the dispute choose the arbitrator, who is someone familiar with the general subject area of the dispute. The Arbitration uses rules that are more streamlined than those used in a court, with a goal of obtaining more efficient but equally just results for a lower cost.
Paule, Camazine & Blumenthal also has unique experience in Collaborative Law, a new process used for divorces. In a Collaborative Divorce, the couple and their lawyers meet in face-to-face sessions during which they exchange information voluntarily and work to find creative solutions. A Collaborative Divorce often includes mental health or financial specialists as part of the problem solving team. If experts are needed, the parties will jointly engage them, avoiding the expense of duplicating these efforts as in traditional litigation. All of the participants sign an agreement pledging to resolve the problem without going to trial.
