Find A Resolution For Your Intractable Legal Dispute
Many small legal disputes can be resolved through informal negotiation and compromise. But when this first step fails to yield a mutually acceptable resolution, you should contact a lawyer and consider other options. At the Law Offices of Marc H. Supcoff, we will analyze the details of your case and work with you to design a cost-effective legal strategy that meets your needs.
Many of our clients choose to pursue their cases through traditional litigation in the court system. In New York and New Jersey state courts, as well as in federal court, we have successfully litigated cases for our clients in a wide range of construction and real estate-related matters, including:
- Construction defects and design defects
- RPAPL 881 license proceedings for access to adjoining property
- Breach of contract
- Delay claims
- Insurance claims
- Mechanic’s lien filings
- Construction lien foreclosure
- Surety bond claims and actions
Many lawsuits are settled out of court, which can save all parties both time and money, but we also are ready to stand up for your interests in court if no other compromise can be reached.
What Is The Difference Between Litigation And Alternative Dispute Resolution?
Litigation means going to court, or reaching a settlement due to the possibility of going to court. But there are other, less confrontational ways within the legal system. These other methods are collectively known as alternative dispute resolution, or ADR. The two most common forms of ADR are mediation and arbitration.
Mediation is an interactive process in which a neutral third party helps parties facilitate communication and negotiation. Attorney Marc Supcoff is a trained mediator, having successfully completed a 40-Hour Mediator Training Course offered by the American Arbitration Association.
Arbitration is a private hearing that can be faster and less costly than going to court. It is somewhat more formal than mediation, but still not as formal as traditional litigation.
