Arbitration

Arbitration

This method of alternate dispute resolution essentially consists of hiring a private judge. There are many skilled arbitrators in New Jersey, a number of whom are retired judges. The parties’ attorneys present their cases to the arbitrator as if they were in Court, and the arbitrator makes a decision. Arbitration can be particularly effective in cases where the parties prefer that the facts of their case not be on the public record. It can also be an effective method for parties who do not wish to deal with the backlogs in the Court system.
