Representation in Arbitration

Attorney Phillip Hamilton has been trained in arbitration by a local court and has worked in this area for more than 15 years. He often recommends arbitration for civil defendants.

In arbitration, a neutral party hears the evidence from both sides and determines an outcome. The ruling is binding, if both parties agree to that in advance. Overall, arbitration is quicker and cheaper than resolving a business dispute in court.

Insightful Mediation Counsel

Often, retired judges will serve as neutral third parties in mediation. They do not hand down a ruling. Instead, the mediator guides the parties to come to a settlement.

Our legal team has extensive experience in mediation and will effectively present the evidence to get the best possible outcome for you.
