Stockton Arbitration and Mediation Legal Services
Resolving issues outside of the courtroom for three decades
Mediation, arbitration and other kinds of alternative dispute resolution are among the most underused processes in the American legal system. If you face a legal issue, but feel that your particular case could be resolved through good faith negotiations rather than a long, drawn-out, expensive trial, then mediation or arbitration may be the right option for you. And with a respected history of successful experience in these areas, Quinn & Kronlund, LLP is almost certainly the right firm of Stockton mediation and arbitration lawyers for you to contact.
When attorneys refer to mediation, they mean a process by which parties involved in a legal dispute can settle their issues with the help of a neutral third party. A mediator helps the parties negotiate their own settlement, thus reaching an agreement everyone can live with rather than a judgment imposed on them by a court.

Employment law is one area of legal practice where mediation often proves useful. Essentially, this area of practice covers any laws or statutes governing the relationships and actions between employers and their employees. Any time a worker files a claim for employment discrimination, or for unfair compensation, or when a case deals with issues of workplace safety, it falls under the umbrella of employment law.
Some legal cases stem from an initial insurance dispute. Other times, the parties involved feel they have reached a settlement only to be blindsided by an underlying insurance coverage issue that must be resolved in order for the settlement to hold. Mediation is an often-effective tool used in cases involving such insurance matters.
Legal disputes over construction defects often arise between customers and contractors. Most often, these issues arise from issues such as faulty materials, cracked slabs, slopes and grading problems, or mistakes made by contractors, developers or subcontractors. Mediation is often an effective way to resolve a construction defect case quickly.
Arbitration is slightly different than mediation in that it is more formal and places more power in the hands of the neutral third party. During arbitration, the arbitrator hears the arguments of both sides and then makes a decision that all parties are legally bound to follow. This decision is enforceable by law.
