Detroit Arbitration Dispute Lawyers

Litigating a case in the courtroom can be a long and costly ordeal. To avoid the time and money associated with traditional litigation, many are turning to arbitration as a means to settle their differences.

What is Arbitration?

Arbitration is a type of alternative dispute resolution process that allows parties to privately resolve disputes without going to court. We’re all familiar with it – syndicated court television shows like Judge Judy© and Judge Mathis© are an example of private arbitration where the parties mutually agree to end their disagreement away from the courthouse.

Sometimes, the decision to arbitrate a dispute is built into a contract. When parties sign agreements that contain arbitration clauses, they give up certain legal rights and agree to submit to an impartial third-party for resolution. Typically, an arbitrator’s decision is final and cannot be appealed.

Getting Help with Arbitration

Although intended to secure speedier relief than the court system, arbitration rules are tricky and the process can still be expensive, especially if discovery or expert witnesses are involved. While the case may not go in front of a judge or jury, for all but the simplest of issues, people going to arbitration need experienced counsel.

My matter was handled and prosecuted above my expectations.

My matter was handled and prosecuted above my expectations and resulted in a positive outcome – other attorneys I contacted weren’t even interested in representing me. I would strongly recommend Sommers Schwartz and Mr. Watkins.

I was very happy with the service you and the firm provided.

You guys handled yourself in a very professional manner and were true advocates for me during this entire process. I am sure you know better than I, but you guys are not only attorneys but also psychologists. You and your firm will always be in my good graces and I will certainly refer anyone that needs your help.

Thank you for your assistance.

Thank you for your assistance which certainly contributed to the favorable outcome of my PIP. Although I hope the future does not require your services, I will certainly not hesitate to contact you.

I greatly appreciate your assistance throughout this process.

I’m happy to put this case behind me once and for all. I greatly appreciate your assistance throughout this process. Thank you, Tad! I’m happily employed now and am enjoying a fresh start.

Kenneth Watkins is very knowledgeable.

Being a healthcare professor myself, I was impressed to know that he was so well read and knew the medical jargon (terminology) when evaluating individual cases. I found him to be very professional, credible, and personable.

I’m speechless!

I’m speechless! I never expected to receive the settlement that you guys worked so hard for! Thank you so much!

Ken Watkins and his staff did a wonderful job

Ken Watkins and his staff did a wonderful job and were very understanding of my sensitive situation.

My sincere thanks for a great job!

My sincere thanks for a great job! I know a lot of attorneys wouldn’t have touched this case or handled it in such a professional manor. Once again, thank you!

I appreciate the team effort provided.

I would like you gentlemen to know that for those of us that have been violated and need legal assistance, we must often wait for justice in quiet desperation. As such, the words I used above “confidence and comfort” came only from you and your team.
