Judge Judy, Judge Joe? It’s just binding arbitration.

You know a lot more about alternative dispute resolution than you think.  Most people do not think about what they are seeing when they watch one of the television shows where a robed “Judge” resolves people’s disputes. The participants have to agree that they will abide by the “Judge’s” decision. So, that means they have voluntarily submitted their dispute to binding arbitration by a neutral third party, the “Judge.”

That this is such popular entertainment to have multiple shows with different “Judges” is a very good sign for our culture. That the “neutrals” impose their will on the participants is part of the process of “binding arbitration.” It is a great way to quickly and efficiently resolve disputes.

But, you don’t have to go on TV to get a neutral to decide your case.  Mediators To Go also provides binding arbitration services. Many matters are disposed via telephone conferences and emails.  Others require face to face meetings.   The smaller the dispute, the smaller the fee.  The arbitrator helps you write down what is decided so you both can understand your obligations clearly and concisely.  You finish the process with a binding agreement that both parties agree to fulfill and that can be enforced by a court if it is violated.

Have you ever thought about how nice it would be to have that lingering dispute resolved once and for all? Will the other party in your dispute agree to accept a neutral third party’s decision?  Is it worth an email or phone call to find out?

We are here to help.  The best part of our arbitration process is it is not on TV.  It is entirely confidential unless you have to enforce the binding agreement in court later.
