Just as doctors specialize in the medical field, lawyers have become much more specialized than the average person may realize. While Miami estate and transactional attorneys are perfectly competent at what they do, only a business litigation lawyer knows how to navigate the often confusing court system.

  • Arbitration (Binding and Non-binding)
  • Mediation
  • Summary jury trials

  • Moderated settlement conferences

Generally, ADR processes tend to be far less time consuming and less costly than using the traditional litigation system.
