Mediation and Arbitration

Kreder Brooks Hailstone LLP Established 1857

Scranton Mediation Lawyer

Mediation and arbitration are forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), and can be used to settle a range of civil disputes: contract disputes, business disputes, land use and zoning disputes, and more. Individuals who wish to avoid the cost and time associated with traditional litigation should consider mediation or arbitration as a means of settling a dispute. Kreder Brooks Hailstone offers services in both.

To find out more about the benefits of mediation and arbitration, contact a Scranton mediation attorney today.


In mediation, a third-party neutral mediator guides disputing parties in settling their legal matter. Each individual party is represented by an attorney while the mediator works to facilitate a mutually agreeable solution to the legal matter at hand.

Attorney Lucille Marsh of Kreder Brooks Hailstone offers full service as an independent mediator. She is well-respected by attorneys throughout Northeast Pennsylvania for her work as a mediator. Call our law office to learn more about our mediation services.


In arbitration, evidence is presented to an arbitrator or panel of arbitrators who will make a judgment on the case. The process is similar to litigation, except that an arbitrator (or panel of arbitrators) renders a decision instead of a judge. The decision can be binding and enforceable in a court of law.

Arbitration tends to be less formal and less time-consuming than litigation. Disputing parties may have to wait months to enter into the court system. Arbitration can often be commenced sooner and tends to be a quicker process with a more prompt resolution.
