How Much Time Does Alternate Dispute Resolution Take?

There is no comparison between the timeline in arbitration, or mediation, and the court system. Your case is heard and decided while still in the same timeframe as the dispute occurred. With arbitration or mediation, witness recollections are not dimmed by time; the process acknowledges the urgency and importance of the dispute.

The information on this page is meant to provide a general overview of the law. The laws in your state and/or city may deviate significantly from those described here. If you have specific questions related to your situation you should speak with a local attorney.
