Mediation/Arbitration Services

Mediation and Arbitration are forms of alternate dispute resolution.  Alternative Dispute Resolution ("ADR") refers to any means of settling disputes outside of the courtroom. 


Mediation is an informal process where a neutral third party attempts to reconcile the parties' differences before proceeding to arbitration or trial.  Minnesota District Courts usually require parties to mediate their case before proceeding to trial. 


Arbitration is a process where a neutral third party hears evidence, determines applicable law, and renders a decision on the merits of the case.  The Arbitrator's decision is usually considered binding but in some cases can be appealed through the court system. 


In addition to representing clients at these proceedings, the lawyers at JDA can serve as neutral mediators and/or arbitrators.  Thomas Jovanovich has over thirty-five years of civil litigation experience and has litigated numerous jury trials.  This experience uniquely qualifies him to objectively evaluate cases.  His service as a mediator and arbitrator has resulted in the fair and efficient resolution of numerous disputes.
