Alternative Dispute Resolution
Alternative dispute resolution (ADR), such as mediation and arbitration, can be a good alternative to litigation for parties who wish to save the time and expense of going to court. It also provides the opportunity for developing creative solutions to legal problems that both parties are satisfied with, rather than the win-lose solutions often created by court decisions.
Albany Mediation And Arbitration Attorney
At O'Connor First, attorney Terence P. O’Connor is on the federal court list of approved mediators and arbitrators. Mr. O’Connor has extensive experience serving as a neutral third party and assisting disputing parties in reaching favorable outcomes to their issues, thus avoiding litigation and preserving business relationships.
As a mediator, Mr. O’Connor facilitates discussion between the parties. His extensive knowledge of civil issues helps the parties view the situation from multiple perspectives, allowing them to reach common ground on a resolution.

- General insurance disputes
