Mediation and Arbitration
Not all disputes begin or end in the legal systems. In the cultural diverse community that is Hawai'i, disputes are resolved in cooperative, non-adversarial ways. Even when you are drawn into the legal system, there are alternative dispute resolution methods when litigation is too costly and/or time-consuming.
Many contract and agreement now include provisions for mandatory mediation before litigation can be pursued. In many cases, arbitration is mandated in lieu of litigation.
This firm has members who have served as mediators and arbitrators, both privately and for the court system. Offering to serve as mediator or arbitrator or representing our clients in a mediation or arbitration is our commitment to give our clients every opportunity to reach a fair and amicable resolution whenever appropriate.
