MEDIATION / ARBITRATION
ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION

Bynum and Jenkins has a principal that is a certified mediator in Virginia and the District of Columbia. This practice area consists of all forms of dispute resolution, including, but not limited to negotiation, mediation and arbitrations involving disputes in contract, tort, organization, business and employment law.

The filing of suit and pursuing a dispute through the court systems of whatever jurisdiction is usually quite costly, ponderous, and may not yield a result acceptable to the litigants. Litigation often requires too much time for dispute resolution to be effective. Solutions reached litigation may not be lasting either. In contrast, resolutions arrived at through alternative dispute resolution processes can be more closely tailored to meet the needs and requirements of the parties and their unique circumstances.

Mediation is a process by which parties attempt to negotiate a mutually agreeable solution to a dispute by using a neutral third party who facilitates the process and assists the parties in reaching a satisfactory resolution. Arbitration is an alternative form of dispute resolution wherein a neutral third party makes a decision for the parties on the merits of the case and determines the appropriate relief for the parties outside of Court.
