Alternative dispute resolution is an ever-increasing important facet of Indiana’s justice system. Whatever the legal subject matter underlying your dispute, an effective, efficient, well-trained, independent third-party negotiator can help parties control or reduce costs and risks in terms of time, money, and emotions by settling their differences between themselves before trial, or even before filing a formal legal action.
