On behalf of Kaplin Stewart Meloff Reiter & Stein, P.C. posted in Arbitration/Mediation on Jan 20, 2016.
Alternative dispute resolution was introduced to the legal system years ago as a way to get cases to final resolution faster and contain costs.

The concept is seen in two forms: mediation and arbitration.
