Alternative Dispute Resolution

In order to provide the most cost effective representation to clients, lawyers often recommend pursuing alternative dispute resolution to resolve matters efficiently.

We offer assistance on both sides of this matter — in representing clients involved in alternative dispute resolution proceedings and in offering services as a mediator or arbitrator to outside parties.

From either side, our lawyers strive to creatively tailor the approach in each case to be practical and productive. The goal is to reach a good result in a timely and cost-effective manner. Our lawyers have experience in many types of alternative dispute resolution, and provide services on a variety of issues including employment, construction, contract disputes, real estate, insurance coverage and disputes, personal injury and more.

Client Representation: Luvaas Cobb’s litigation practice attorneys are experienced in mediation, arbitration and judicial settlement conferences. These alternatives to litigation are an integral part of our practice. Our attorneys regularly serve as counsel to clients involved in alternative dispute resolution proceedings and guide clients in utilizing such cost-effective methods to resolve their disputes.

Arbitrators/Mediators: Our attorneys have special training in alternative dispute resolution who are members of the American Bar Association and Oregon State Bar’s Alternative Dispute Resolution sections, and are members of both state and federal mediation panels. With their specialized training and extensive years of experience practicing law, our attorneys are often called upon to act as an impartial third person chosen by parties to assist in resolving a dispute.
