Jury trials are a time-tested method to resolve legal disputes, but they are time consuming, expensive, and the losing party always feels mistreated by the jury’s verdict. There is another way. Mediation and arbitration are extremely effective methods for resolving cases more quickly and with less expense than a jury trial. Mediation allows the parties to craft a solution to their dispute that they can all accept. Arbitration allows the parties to have their case decided by a subject matter expert according to procedures agreed to by the parties. Because COVID-19 restrictions have delayed jury trials in most states, mediation and arbitration now play a more important role than ever.
