EARLY SETTLEMENT, PRE-TRIL, TRIAL AND ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROCESSES
– dispute resolution
The Law Office of Dan Price (“LODP”) has developed a breadth of experience representing Clients in early settlement, pre-trial, trial and alternative dispute resolution processes (local, national and international arbitration and mediation) for some 35 years. The LODP is pleased with its record of success in resolving all manner of disputes, especially those that are resolved in their infancy.
Litigation is no fun – it is expensive, consumes enormous time and can be very distractive. For these reasons my practice includes counseling and advice regarding alternatives to becoming a party to adversary proceedings. In many cases emerging problems can be effectively identified and managed or avoided before they become expensive and protracted litigation.
Success is measured differently for each client, each of whom brings a unique blend of considerations that must be understood before a strategy suitable to that client can be developed. A client’s risk tolerances, finances, and opportunity costs are only a few of the relevant considerations to an effective dispute resolution strategy.
Armed with this information and all other relevant facts, the LODP will explain the risks, benefits and costs of the alternatives without sugar coating or driving any strategy with false assurances. You can expect straight answers to your questions and an unvarnished opinion on the merits, virtues and difficulties of your case.
The LODP also believes that both success as an advocate and cost management are facilitated by maintaining professional relationships with courts, agencies, arbitrators as well as opposing counsel and tries to develop a mutual problem-solving environment for all involved during the course of dispute resolution
