Seattle & Tacoma Arbitration Attorneys

Representing clients in arbitration proceedings

If you have a legal dispute, often your mind goes directly toward taking the other party to court. While litigation is perhaps the most well-known method of attempting to solve legal issues, it can also be expensive, time-consuming, and stressful for everyone involved. Fortunately, litigation is far from your only option in many cases, and an experienced attorney can advise you on several options for alternative dispute resolution, or ADR. One example of ADR that helps many parties save time and money in legal battles is called arbitration. If you are wondering whether arbitration is right for you and your case, please do not delay in calling the experienced arbitration attorneys at the Dickson Frohlich in Seattle or Tacoma today.

We offer free 15-minute phone consultations, so please call us at (206) 621-1110 or (253) 572-1000 with your questions today.

What is arbitration?

Though arbitration seems similar to a trial in front of a judge or tribunal, the proceedings all take place out of court and are generally far less costly and faster than litigation. Each side will present its arguments to  one arbitrator or a panel of arbitrators, and the arbitrator(s) will then make a decision how the dispute should be resolved. The potential downside of arbitration is that the decision is legally binding and you have few rights to appeal. Therefore, you are usually stuck with the decision, even if it’s not completely in your favor. For this reason, you always want an experienced arbitration lawyer to represent you so that you can receive the best outcome possible.

Sometimes, you may find yourself facing arbitration against your will. If you signed a contract that has a provision requiring arbitration as the method to resolve disputes, you may have to go through the process whether you want to or not.
