Mediations and arbitrations are two of the most common forms of alternative dispute resolution available today. Both options allow you to avoid the inconvenience and expense of a lawsuit.

  • Arbitration is conducted when both sides agree to have a neutral third party decide their case. Although the neutral is usually a retired Judge or an experienced attorney, it can be anyone that both sides trust to fairly decide their dispute. Phil Brown has been honored to act as an arbitrator in several Hawaii cases.
  • Mediation is when the parties agree to have an independent mediator evaluate both sides of the case and recommend ways to reach a settlement. It is typically done by bringing both parties together on the same day and then leaving them in separate conference rooms. The mediator then meets separately with both parties and discusses the dispute and potential ways to reach a settlement. It is not unusual for a mediation to last an entire day, or even several days. Once the mediator believes that he has negotiated the best possible deal, he will either recommend a settlement or inform both sides that he believes that it is not possible to reach a deal on that day. Mediation is usually non binding, although both sides could agree to be bound by whatever the mediator decides.
