Mediation and Alternative Dispute Resolution in Arizona

Mediation and Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) are the perfect choice when you’re trying to find an out-of-court resolution to your Arizona legal issue. ADR programs like mediation, arbitration, and collaborative law will help you arrive at an agreeable solution, sparing both you and your opponent the time, money, and hassle of going through the court system. Learn more about how mediation and arbitration work in Arizona so that you can choose which one will work best for you.

What is Mediation in Arizona?

Mediation is a process where you and your opponent agree to hand over the negotiation process to a neutral third-party mediator. The mediator will listen to both sides of the dispute and bring up any relevant information or evidence that could help you come to an agreement. The mediator’s role is not to come up with a solution, but rather to act as an unbiased source of information and help you find one that you both can agree on. This will help you avoid an expensive trial, and save both parties time and money.

Mediation is an out-of-court process, meaning that it will not be held in a court of law but rather in a mediator’s office or another agreed upon location. The mediator may also bring other parties into the process if they are relevant to the case. Sessions with a mediator may last anywhere from one hour to several days.

What is Arbitration in Arizona?

Arbitration is an alternative dispute resolution process that works similarly to mediation. It is used when you’re looking for an out-of-court compromise between litigants, but with the use of laws that are binding arbitration and court procedures. Federal law allows you to opt out of the justice system altogether by using arbitration as a means of resolving your legal issue.

In arbitration, a neutral third-party or panel of arbitrators hears both sides of the story and then makes a decision based on the evidence presented to them. This decision is legally binding for all parties involved. If you opt for arbitration, both you and your opponent will also be subject to pre-arbitration discovery procedures in which the arbitrators will ask questions pertaining to your case and seek out evidence that could help clarify it.

Arbitration is similar to mediation in that its sessions may either be in person or online. It also requires you and your opponent to come to an agreement as to what laws will be applied. The decision that the arbitrators make is legally binding, so if you choose arbitration as an alternative dispute resolution process, be sure that the law that applies is one that you’re comfortable with.

The ADR process will be different depending on what type of case it is and the laws that apply. Whatever you choose, the mediator or arbitrator will act as an unbiased third-party who will provide you with information and help you make an informed decision on how to resolve your case. This can be done through a settlement agreement or simply by presenting both sides of the story so that you can come to an agreement yourselves.

Mediation vs. Arbitration in Arizona

If you are a resident of Arizona and are in need of an out-of-court alternative dispute resolution process, consider choosing mediation or arbitration as your ADR solution. Arbitration is a state law that can be used in several different situations. For example, it is only required if you’re involved in a federal agency or have been served with an arbitration order by the state. However, if you are not involved with the justice system already, you may still choose to use arbitration as an ADR tool.
