Alternative Dispute Resolution

Our attorneys recognize that litigation does not always serve the best interests of our clients—the process can be expensive, drawn out, and unpredictable. If possible, our clients can be best served by resolving disputes as expeditiously as possible, whether through negotiation, mediation, or arbitration.

Most of our attorneys are experienced in alternative dispute resolution (ADR) and have served as arbitrators and mediators for a wide variety of matters. Below is a list of attorneys in each office and the area in which they have ADR experience.


Mark Davidson – Commercial real estate, business disputes, securities
Jan Kirkwood – Personal injury, breach of contract, real estate
Mark Schedler – Real estate, tenant/landlord disputes, land use
