Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)
As a mediator and arbitrator registered by the State Bar of Georgia, I am prepared to assist legal clients facing any legal difficulty who are looking for an inexpensive and holistic alternative to traditional litigation. I am attorney Eric Ballinger, and my goal as a Georgia ADR attorney is to help my clients take ownership of the dispute resolution process while also saving them time and money.
Georgia Alternative Dispute Resolution Lawyer
Mediation and arbitration are both forms of ADR but use different methods. Arbitration is closer to a trial, with a neutral third party hearing testimony from the parties and reviewing the evidence before issuing a binding decision. In mediation, the mediator acts more like a guide, explaining the relevant laws to the parties and facilitating negotiation toward a settlement.
Since I am certified in both types of ADR, I can effectively advise and prepare clients no matter which type is being used. I know how to use mediation and arbitration to the client’s best advantage. Successful usage of ADR helps clients reach a reasonable, practical outcome. It also gives them a feeling of having participated in the resolution process, which tends to make the terms sustainable long-term.
As one of North Georgia’s most respected and experienced alternative dispute resolution lawyers, I am the ADR attorney to whom my colleagues refer their clients. I have practiced ADR law for decades and am capable of using mediation and arbitration to resolve complex matters like business disputes and property division for a divorce.
