How ADR Can Help You Avoid Ethical Pitfalls and Better Represent Your Client

Save time and money.

Understand the advantages and disadvantages in the different forms of ADR. Lawyers are faced with often bewildering alternatives in helping clients resolve disputes. The Courts are overwhelmed with criminal dockets that typically have priority over civil matters. Getting a courtroom can take anywhere from one to five years during which time positions often harden, conflicts deepen, witnesses' memories dim, documents are lost, and expenses mount. Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is the obvious solution, but how do you go about this? This information helps lawyers analyze the three most popular alternatives, settlement, mediation and arbitration, and select which options are most likely to succeed. The topic will address ethical issues unique to ADR, and describe how to advise clients on the advantages and disadvantages of each of three approaches. Receive tips on how lawyers should prepare themselves and their clients to take maximum advantage of these alternatives. This information is critical to new lawyers as well as more experienced lawyers whose clients who are frustrated by the delays, inefficiency, uncertainty and expense of the litigation process.
