Providing Options, Not Ultimatums
Although most people think of courtroom showdowns when first addressing a legal issue, the truth is that a majority of disputes are resolved through negotiation, mediation or other forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR).
At Scott Law Group, we want to help our clients explore all possible options for resolving their legal issues. When you work with our attorneys, you have a chance to ask questions, gather information and develop a plan that best fits your goals. Whether you are considering divorce mediation or need to use ADR to solve a business dispute, our team is on your side.
What Are The Advantages Of ADR?
Not only do ADR methods save clients a great deal of time and money, but they also spare all parties a significant amount of stress and frustration.
Below are a few bullet points on general benefits of mediation:
- Mediation often moves more quickly than litigation
- By saving time, you can also save a lot of money in legal fees
- ADR and marital mediation proceedings are confidential
- When children are involved, mediation can protect kids from the harsher aspects of the proceedings, including appearing in court.
In short, ADR methods allow you to take control of the issue instead of putting your fate completely in the hands of the courts.

How Does Our Firm Help With Mediation And ADR?
Every case we take presents unique challenges. In some cases, the parties involved in a dispute can work through their issues by simply talking with one another. In others, bitterness, acrimony or other factors can make peaceful negotiations next to impossible.
For example, in court-ordered child custody mediations, your attorney cannot be present. However, we can help you prepare. Alternately, when determining the distribution of marital assets, we can be your mouthpiece during negotiations with your soon-to-be-former spouse’s attorney.
