Utah lawyers know that Alternative Dispute Resolution is not just creative litigation

Most are unfamiliar with the term Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) but it is a widely prevalent way to resolve cases that may arise from such claims that are not within the realm of high profile litigation that reaches a courtroom. Basically, with ADR a party can try to reconcile or negotiate the argument or disagreement that has brought them to the point of litigation in a cost effective, calmative and more cooperative environment. The term Alternative Dispute Resolution is a familiar one with experienced Utah lawyers, especially at Shumway Van & Hansen. The idiom has gained popularity over the last twenty years when it was introduced as a more prompt and efficient approach in resolving general legal disputes between parties. Don’t worry, if you haven’t heard of it, you are not alone. Most people who have recently, and for the first time, become involved in a general legal matter will find that this ADR expression will become rather familiar and non-strenuous, if you have sought out the Utah lawyer that Utahns can trust to handle an efficient, but even so, taxing journey of legal processes.

This term has recently become synonymous with the rapidly rising and broadcast divorce proceedings of famous celebrities. Thanks to ADR’s forms of ‘mediation’, a term that describes the process of an appointed and objective liaison to relay information and agreements between parties, your most favorite divorced celebs are cheering their way to their next marital conquest. ADR is not only used for high profile divorce cases. Many law firms in Salt Lake City Utah are using ADR to navigate the legal jungle that their clients find themselves in. With an experienced lawyer in Utah, who is familiar with mediation, arbitration and terms such as ‘binding’ and ‘non-binding’; you can successfully come out of the tunnel of dispute unscathed and intact.
