· Couples seeking divorce;
· Siblings and others battling over a will;
· Families arguing about financial and care decisions for disabled members;
· business and commercial
· labor and employment
· real estate

· personal injury
· breach of contract

· and more!
Mediation is a process where a neutral third-party mediator works with the parties to reach a mutually agreeable settlement, then works with the parties and their counsel to formulate a binding stipulation of settlement that may be filed with the court. If a settlement is not reached, the mediator has no authority to impose one.
In arbitration, the arbitrator hears evidence and receives testimony, much like a judge, and makes a decision that is binding on the parties.
The NCBA Alternative Dispute Resolution services are available to the public as well as to all legal professionals. The panels of arbitrators and mediators are highly skilled and qualified attorneys, admitted to the New York bar a minimum of 10 years and screened by the NCBA Judiciary
