Mediation and Arbitration

At the law office of Brian G. Miller Co., L.P.A., in Columbus, Ohio, we provide expert legal assistance for our clients as a mediator or an arbitrator. Mediation and arbitration are two ways in which disputes can be legally settled outside of a courtroom. They are often referred to as means of alternative dispute resolution.

While Attorney Brian G. Miller has a trial background and a history of success in the courtroom, such experience also allows him to appreciate the risks and detriments associated with the trial process. Because of this experience, and his knowledge within his areas of practice, Mr. Miller enjoys serving as both a mediator and an arbitrator. If you are looking for a respected mediator or someone to assist with the arbitration process, contact Miller Law.

Mediation

What is a mediator?

A mediator is an independent, neutral third party who helps adversarial parties, typically involved in a legal dispute, come to an agreement.

Why use mediation?

Mediation can be the ideal solution to a number of legal disputes, including:

  • Personal injury
  • Insurance claims
  • Wrongful death
  • Construction disputes
  • Contract disputes

The confidentiality of all parties is protected throughout the mediation process. Either party can also disclose confidential details to the mediator, who is legally bound to maintain the confidentiality of both parties.

What happens in mediation?

  • Mediation is voluntary; the result is only binding if it is mutually agreed upon by the parties involved in the dispute.
  • Mediation typically results in a faster outcome than a formal court dispute.
  • Costs of mediator are often shared by the parties.
  • Mediation often offers a resolution that is in everyone’s best interests and much more acceptable and preferable than trying a legal case.

As an attorney, Mr. Miller serves primarily as a mediator in the field of personal injury disputes, and has been gratified to assist other lawyers in resolving their cases in this area, but he can provide mediation services with respect to a range of other legal disputes as well.

Arbitration

What is arbitration?

Arbitration is also an alternative to trial, though it more closely resembles a trial than does a mediation. In arbitration, both parties agree on an arbitrator or group of arbitrators to make a determination about the matter contested by the parties. The most important aspect of arbitration is choosing an impartial arbitrator who understands the full circumstances and the legal aspects of the dispute. Attorney Brian Miller has experience with the American Arbitration Association (AAA), and he has served as an arbitrator through the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas.
