Arbitration arises when you have entered into a contract with a party which involves a transaction either involving or affecting interstate commerce.

In an arbitration action the goal is to avoid court by appearing before a neutral licensed arbitrator (normally an Attorney-at-Law or Retired Judge) who will hear the arguments of your case and rule based on the law and facts of the case.

Each arbitration agreement is different, and depending on the terms of your contract you may be responsible for some or all of the costs of arbitration, and limited to an amount of damages as specified in the contract.

If you believe your case is subject to an Arbitration Agreement, or you want to find out if your contract provides for arbitration, please schedule an appointment today to speak with one of our attorneys so your rights may be explained to you more fully and specifically after we’ve had a chance to review your contract.
