Mediation and Neutral Services

We help litigants and their attorneys manage the cost and uncertainty of litigation by providing proven, confidential, results driven dispute resolution processes. We’ve incorporated our decades of practical experience in the courtroom and at the settlement table into the DRS Mediation Process™ – an innovative system that assists parties in achieving satisfactory and creative resolutions to their disputes

While the civil justice system is intended to be speedy, fair, and cost effective, that’s not always the case, and “winning” a lawsuit is sometimes no victory at all.

Knowledgeable attorneys and their clients seek alternatives to traditional litigation, often seeking the efficiency, economy, and relative speed of mediation instead.

Done well, with an ongoing and dedicated commitment to seeking a resolution, the mediation process allows parties and counsel to:

  • Maximize control, self-determination and client satisfaction

  • Maximize predictability and confidentiality

  • Maximize options and their finality

  • Minimize risks and delays

  • Minimize costs and expenses

  • Achieve creative, durable results unobtainable through trial or arbitration

We leverage our more than 30 years of practical, hands-on experience and subject matter and process expertise to help litigants resolve a variety of issues:

  • Commercial Transactions

  • Civil Rights Disputes

  • Acquisition & Divestitures
