What Is Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)?

In short, ADR refers to methods of resolving legal conflicts outside court. During ADR processes, parties meet with a neutral third party to discuss and settle a conflict. Common ADR methods include mediation, arbitration, and negotiation. In most cases, these are more cost-effective than traditional litigation. Additionally, they can expedite settlements and promote productive conversation and collaboration.

You can use ADR methods to settle various civil and family law cases, including but not limited to:

  • Divorce
  • Child custody
  • Spousal support
  • Marital property distribution
  • Personal Injury
  • Professional malpractice
  • Contract disputes

What We Offer

Our Silver Spring alternative dispute resolution attorney can assist you in numerous ways, from counseling you through collaborative law processes to serving as a private mediator.

Below are further details about what we offer:

Assistance in Collaborative Law

In civil and family/domestic law cases, it is possible to settle a dispute by making good-faith efforts to collaborate and reach a resolution. This approach is called collaborative law. The process begins with you and another party entering a written contract to neither threaten nor use litigation. Then, you engage in negotiations. You may also consult financial experts, divorce coaches, and other relevant professionals to help resolve disputes.

In collaborative law, our attorney can be a lifeline. She can work to protect your rights and help you understand the legal implications of any proposed agreements. Additionally, Attorney Okasili can be a tireless advocate during negotiations.

Facilitating Mediation & Arbitration

A court may order you to participate in mediation or arbitration, or you may voluntarily elect to settle a dispute through them. We aim to facilitate constructive dialogue and guide parties towards mutually beneficial resolutions.

Here's what you can expect from our mediation and arbitration services:

  • Neutral facilitation: We are neutral facilitators, fostering fairness and impartiality throughout mediation or arbitration. We do not offer legal advice or make decisions for any party.
  • Tailored resolutions: Our approach is centered on finding resolutions tailored to the specific needs and interests of the parties. By managing disputes fairly, we strive to reach agreements to satisfy all parties.
  • Multifaceted methods: We utilize various tools and techniques to facilitate discussions and arrive at fair settlements. These tools may include brainstorming sessions, active listening exercises, and other creative solutions.
  • Open communication: We foster an environment that encourages attentive listening and open communication. Each party can express their perspective, and we set boundaries to facilitate respectful behavior throughout the process.
  • Knowledgeable guidance: We understand the complexities of the issues and guide parties through the discussion process, helping them identify and address key concerns. We aim to help parties create well-thought-out settlements.

Our mediation and arbitration services provide a supportive and constructive environment for resolving disputes.

Legal Guidance During Mediation

As a Collaborative Law practitioner at the Law Office of Eshigo P. Okasili, LLC, our attorney provides dedicated guidance to individuals navigating mediation proceedings. In this role, we represent one party exclusively, offering them tailored advice and advocating fervently for their interests.

Here is how our lawyer assists individuals through the mediation process:

  • Representation: Our attorney advocates for one party throughout the mediation process. We prioritize understanding our client's needs and objectives and work tirelessly to protect their rights and interests. We do not facilitate communication between the parties but instead focus on advocating for our client's position and negotiating on their behalf.
