Alternative Dispute Resolution

Alternative Dispute Resolution

Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) refers to the various ways disputes are resolved outside the court system. While you may think that having a trial is the most common way to resolve legal problems, a very small percentage of cases actually go to trial. ADR allows people to settle their disputes in an informal, less expensive, and usually faster way than going to court.
