NorthEast Mediation & Arbitration, LLC
You go to court to make a point…you go to mediation to make a deal.
Mediation offers parties in conflict, or involved in a lawsuit, a unique opportunity to resolve their dispute by agreement, without the necessity of going to court.
Arbitration is less formal than a traditional court trial, yet typically provides the same result. It is an evidentiary hearing where both parties may present witnesses and submit documentary evidence to determine legal rights and responsibilities.
Case evaluation and consultation offers a comprehensive file review, and a fresh, unbiased perspective of the claim.
State of the art video conferencing technology. Across town or across the country, NEMA and Zoom…The perfect long distance partnership.
