The courts, large and small businesses, local governments and individuals are all turning more and more to alternative dispute resolution processes and practitioners to seek relief from drawn out and painful traditional process.

This life experience has prepared for the highest level of challenge in land use, real estate, construction and community association dispute resolution.
