what is arbitration graphic

For more than 20 years, the experts at Central Florida Mediation Group have helped thousands of attorneys and their clients, as well as individual litigants, achieve successful resolutions without the rigorous demands – and the sacrifice of time, effort, expense and privacy – associated with litigation of claims in court.

Mediation – Mediation is a process where the mediator works to find a suitable compromise between the parties, thus avoiding a protracted court battle and neutral-party-imposed awards. Often, all that is needed to settle even the toughest disputes is an experienced mediator to provide reasonable solutions to both sides.

Arbitration – Arbitration involves parties having their case heard by a legal panel instead of a judge or jury. The panel consists of one or more members with the authority to decide the final award to the respective parties. Arbitration is typically faster and less costly than a formal trial, even in serious cases.

Whether you choose mediation or arbitration, the CFMG team has the acumen and expertise to address your case fairly and comprehensively, promoting the best possible outcome. Our services include an administrative fee of $95 that is charged per party.
