Alternative Dispute Resolution

  • Arbitration
  • Focus Groups
  • Mediation (including pre-suit mediation)
  • Mock Trials

All of our attorneys are regularly involved in litigation, but we recognize and value the importance of ADR. We have over 100 years of combined experience with mediations, both within and outside of Missouri.

Two of our partners have served as arbitrators in a variety of matters, including transportation and commercial litigation. Partner Laurel Stevenson has also served as a mediator. She has also been a Facilitator for the Missouri Bar Complaint Resolution Program and the Fee Dispute Resolution Program.

Our ability to serve our clients through ADR has allowed us to participate in mock trials, focus groups, as well as pre-suit mediation. We have successfully resolved over 20 cases utilizing pre-suit mediation, including a death claim, and an amputee claim, saving our clients substantial time and expense.
