The attorneys at Strassburger McKenna Gutnick & Gefsky have helped individuals and businesses resolve legal matters in court since 1919, but the Western Pennsylvania firm has also been engaged in alternative dispute resolution (ADR). Several SMGG attorneys have experience as ADR neutrals (mediators and arbitrators). They have also represented clients in ADR since the concept became more popular locally in the late 1990s as a less costly litigation alternative.
Attorneys Michael Fox, E.J. Strassburger, Alan T. Shuckrow and Harry F. Kunselman offer services as ADR neutrals.
Many courts require ADR in certain circumstances. For example, ADR is mandatory for all civil cases filed in the United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania. Other courts are following suit. Even state court judges who are managing cases may require the parties to attempt mediation or arbitration as part of the case management.
The attorneys at SMGG are well prepared to guide clients through all parts of the ADR process.
Non-judicial methods of ADR include, but are not limited to, mediation, collaborative law, arbitration, and early neutral evaluation (ENE).
Strassburger McKenna Gutnick & Gefsky understands the time, economic, and emotional benefits of ADR and always considers ADR when evaluating a case. Our experience in litigation not only makes our attorneys valuable counselors when it comes to developing strategy and negotiating, but also means we stand ready to represent you if your best efforts to reach a compromise fail and the matter escalates.
