Arbitration is the other commonly used alternative dispute resolution technique now gaining popularity in this country. In arbitration, the parties agree to be bound by the decision of a third party, called the arbitrator. Unlike mediation, where the parties make their own decision, in arbitration the final decision making authority is in the hands of an impartial, experienced individual whose job is to render a fair and just decision.
The Shafer Law Firm is very pleased to be introducing to Crawford County arbitration and mediation services in the family law area. Shafer Law, through Attorney James R. Irwin, an attorney who has practiced in the family law area in Crawford County for over 26 years, now offers family law mediation and arbitration services to the residents of Crawford County as an alternative to the emotionally and economically draining process of family law litigation.
