Litigation can be an expensive, emotionally taxing, and above all, unpredictable affair. Until a judge or jury provides a final verdict, you can’t be certain of the outcome of your case. For these reasons, many parties opt to resolve their disputes through alternative means.

Not all legal disputes require a lawsuit to resolve. Choosing dispute resolution over litigation allows both parties to reach a fair resolution and avoid the high costs and unpredictable outcomes that could result from a lawsuit. Turn to Blackstone Mediation when you need to resolve an issue without the adversarial format of courtroom litigation.

Avoid Uncertainty Thru Mediation

No matter how confident you might be in your pre-trial preparation, there’s no guarantee you’ll come away from the proceeding with a favorable resolution. While no manner of dispute resolution can provide a guaranteed outcome, mediation, by design, offers individuals the opportunity to reach an agreement only as your personal choice. Seeking mediation over courtroom litigation offers litigants several benefits, some of which include:

  • Reduced Emotional Taxation
  • Reduced Time
  • Reduced Expenses
  • Increased Amount of Control Over and Outcome
  • Increased Chances of an Amicable Resolution

Arbitration: Informal Dispute Resolution

Should you opt for a resolution out of court, depending on the nature of your case, arbitration may be the only available route. A less formal manner of dispute resolution than a trial, parties seeking this form of dispute resolution yield their control over the outcome to a designated arbitrator while still avoiding the expenses of a trial. In binding arbitration, parties give up their right to a trial, while its non-binding counterpart allows them to initiate a trial should one or both parties be dissatisfied with the arbitrator’s decision.

Remain Civil with a Peaceful Resolution

Alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation, arbitration, and other non-adversarial proceedings, help ensure a more efficient system of justice.  Join countless others who have sought creative dispute resolution processes as their first choice, or an early choice.

Let us guide you and other involved parties toward a more amicable solution that considers the concerns of all involved through our mediation solutions. Mediation allows you to control costs, control time, control the process, and control the outcome. Mediation is an alternative form of dispute resolution between two or more parties, and the mediator acts as a third party helping negotiate an amicable settlement. The mediator strives to keep negotiations from breaking down, allowing for an outcome that both parties have influence over, rather than leaving it to the risks inherent in the win/loss before a judge or jury. Mediation is especially appropriate for conflicts or disputes where emotions may run high. Considerable savings of time and expense, though mediation is not recommended for parties unwilling to cooperate.

Arbitration is a less formal solution than a trial with more relaxed rules of evidence. Unless dictated by contract, it allows parties to choose whether the outcome is to be binding or non-binding. Binding arbitration means that the parties give up their right to a trial, while non-binding arbitration allows them to initiate a trial if they don't like the outcome.

To a considerable degree, you control costs, control time, control the process, but in arbitration, you have no control over the outcome. The arbitrator hears arguments and evidence from both sides and makes a decision. In arbitration, you're looking for someone else to make the decision for you, while still avoiding the expense of a trial.

Paper and Pen Icon


In neutral evaluation, a party gets to present their case or issue, and the evaluator gives an opinion of the evidence and arguments. The neutral evaluator renders a non-binding reasoned evaluation on the merits of the case. A neutral evaluator will examine a case from a truly neutral point of view. This often helps the parties involved decide how to move on with the issue. If there are significant barriers, significant emotional involvement, or highly technical issues at play, this is not an appropriate avenue for resolution.

personal Counsel

Sometimes, personal counsel may prove beneficial to advise you about your best course of action or risk reduction alternatives involved. Where insurance limits are involved, and where personal asset exposure or corporate executives and board members have a need for personal counsel in addition to corporate counsel or assigned counsel from insurance companies, your personal counsel gives you one-on-one, unvarnished advice, and even advocacy, when necessary.

All claims and cases come to an end someday; your goal is to have the matter resolved in the smoothest manner and with the best outcome.
