Sometimes, there’s a better resolution.

The alternative dispute resolution (ADR) practice group at Jaspan Schlesinger LLP provides a private framework in which to handle legal matters, saving both time and money when compared to drawn-out and expensive court proceedings. For families going through divorce or a contested estate matter, ADR keeps private matters out of the public record. For businesses, ADR significantly limits the potential damage to a company’s reputation and profits by keeping sensitive information confidential.

Strategic Planning for a Fair and Cost-Effective Outcome

The methods we use for alternative dispute resolution are not only efficient, they’re an effective means to arrive at a fair resolution. Our team can help ensure that a settlement is reached by:

  • Acting as a mediator, private judge or party-appointed arbitrator
  • Serving as advocates for clients in arbitrations or mediations
  • Preparing clients for upcoming trials or arbitrations by conducting intensive mock proceedings
  • Drafting alternative dispute resolution provisions in contracts relating to, among other things, the formation or operation of a business, commercial transactions or terms of employment.

The Knowledge and Know-How Your Dispute Needs

After decades of piloting clients through alternate dispute resolution matters, our attorneys have the knowledge and experience to handle the most complicated cases. In fact, ours is currently Long Island’s only alternative dispute resolution practice chaired by a retired Supreme Court Justice, Hon. Anthony J. Falanga.

Jaspan Schlesinger LLP also has among its alternative dispute resolution attorneys another retired Supreme Court Justice, former Surrogate’s Court court attorney-referees and experienced arbitrators, all of whom have decades of experience in resolving contested matters. These lawyers have acted as both advocates and neutrals in arbitration and mediation forums such as AAA, FINRA, court-sponsored ADR programs, and Bar Association dispute resolution programs in New York City, on Long Island, and in the greater metropolitan area.
