Best Ideas Win

The Best Ideas Win is a very practical approach to resolving conflicts. It involves exploratory, interactive and participatory discussion, combined with a detailed analysis of the facts and legal issues surrounding the case at hand to help determine a fair and just resolution for you.

First, we explore the fundamental reasons underlying the conflict. We will explore all of the dimensions of the conflict: the facts, the issues, the rationales, the goals and the interests.

Second, our program specifically addresses the parties on interpersonal level, as we engage the parties privately to confidentially, to address any sensitive matters. Lastly we analyze all of the important legal issues and interpretations of the law that may affect the outcome, if the matter goes to trial.

Third, unlike some mediators or consultants, we are not passive actors in this process. When engaged, we actively help develop the best ideas in order for both sides pursue the goal of a fair and just resolution to all of their difficult issues and concerns.

Top 10 Mediation Questions

  1. Are mediation settlements binding and enforceable, isn’t mediation voluntary? Yes the process of mediation itself is voluntary. However when we reach a settlement agreement, which we almost always do, that agreement becomes a contract. In writing, our agreements have the same legal protections as any other contract.
  2. Do both sides need to agree to mediate the case? Yes. In order to effectively mediate, both sides have to be willing to try one session, If they are not satisfied, there is no cost or obligation to continue. After the first session, the parties can work in the same room with the mediator or work separately and privately with the mediator if they so chose.
  3. Should I get the agreement in writing? Yes whenever possible in writing helps to avoid any future misunderstandings.

Alternatives

There are other alternatives that you may choose:

  • Facilitation is where the parties have a managed discussion about particular subjects, with a trained facilitator leading the group conversation, keeping the parties on point but the ultimate goal is not resolution. This process is non binding and not results driven.
  • Arbitration is another alternative. The arbitrator is your own private judge, hired by both sides. He makes binding rulings and the ultimate decisions in a semi-formal trial format. This process is usually quicker than a trial. Like court, you can present evidence and witnesses, but have no control over the outcome and you must accept whatever the arbiter says without question.
  • Litigation: with all of the known associated dollars and time, is the ‘good’ old fashioned way. Go out and hire a team of lawyers and sue each other for years. Remember if you mediate first and you are not satisfied, you can always return to this litigation option, if that is what you want.

Alternative Law focuses more on planning, mediation and consulting  as our systems develop  working plans, create flexible options, have the tangible resolution results and the highest rate of client satisfaction.

ADR Information and Pricing

There may be appropriate sliding scales, also when submitted by the EEOC or your local human rights agency. You should discuss this with your selected mediator prior to the process being initiated, but savings of 35%-65% over traditional litigation methods are reasonable.

Testimonials

I would  recommend Alternative Law Mediation Consulting  in any business matter involving two or more parties that need help solving problems. They provided  a prompt and fair  plan with reasonable rates for resolution. Together, we worked hard  for results. They offered a money back guarantee which I did not need. I was very satisfied.

Steven Bean

Alternative Law was one of only 2 mediation firms in the entire country selected to plan and mediate with the original historic  EEOC’s RESOLVE Program. Mr. Fallon was selected to serve as the mediator consultant. Since then, he is  the only professional  in the program to resolve all  cases in one year. This is  a very challenging, first in the nation program. He works very well  with all types of clients, families, plaintiffs, defendants,  and attorneys.

United States EEOC Equal Employment Opportunity Commission

As a lawyer for over 25 years, I have numerous opportunities to be involved in mediations. Of all the mediators I have worked with, I can unequivocally state that Alternative Law Mediation are the most effective mediators at settling difficult cases. They have an innate ability to glean the information from the parties which helps him creatively determine how to solve difficult settlements. I would be pleased to personally discuss this reference and their results further.

When we hired Alternative Law Consulting, we needed  succession planning, executive coaching, and conflict resolution. With their guidance our  succession plans were successful, our profits increased, and our conflicts reduced. We are very satisfied with the improvements to our team. While there is still more to do, thank you Alternative Law for a job very well done.
