Personal Injury Attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman Discusses Alternative Dispute Resolutions.

Personal Injury Attorney, Eva Brindisi Pearlman, partner at the Law Offices of Brindisi, Murad, Brindisi & Pearlman says that while everyone wants their day in court, trials are extremely expensive and time consuming, which is making Alternative Dispute Resolution increasingly popular.

Utica, NY, January 12, 2015: Personal Injury attorney Eva Brindisi Pearlman, partner at the Law Offices Brindisi, Murad, Brindisi & Pearlman has posted a new blog on the law offices website entitled “Alternative Dispute Resolution vs. Litigation.” No one ever knows how a trial is going to turn out. The time and expense required to go to trial is putting a damper on lawyers as well as clients.

Pearlman recognizes the right to a trial as stated in the Seventh Amendment to the United States Constitution, which is part of the Bill of Rights. However, she also acknowledges that, “today, the expense and uncertainty of going to trial has made many lawyers and clients pursue Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). “

According to Pearlman, “ADR refers to a variety of methods that help parties resolve certain civil and commercial disputes without a trial. ADR often saves money and speeds settlement, which is an attractive alternative to trial.” She adds, “In New York, these methods may include Mediations and Arbitrations.”

Among the available methods, Pearlman writes, “Mediation is the most common ADR method used and is becoming increasingly popular in personal injury cases.” She explains why saying, “The advantages include faster and less expensive resolution of a case resulting in more satisfied clients.”

Pearlman gives a brief overview of both, Mediation and Arbitration. She writes, “The Mediation process involves the neutral “mediator” helping the parties try to reach a mutually acceptable resolution of the dispute.” Another option known as Arbitration is less formal than a trial. Pearlman explains, “The Arbitration process involves a neutral person called an “arbitrator” who will hear arguments and evidence and then decide the outcome of the case. Arbitration can be binding or nonbinding, depending on what the parties agree to in advance of the proceeding. In binding arbitration, the parties are required to accept the arbitrator’s decision as final and there is generally no right to appeal. In nonbinding arbitration, if the parties do not agree with the arbitrator’s decision they may request a trial and still have their day in court.”

Pearlman adds, “Your day in court may not be all you hope it could be. It might be to your advantage to consider ADR to reach a resolution of your case and avoid the stress, anxiety and uncertainty of trial.”
