When a legal dispute arises, you may be able to take an alternate path to resolution, one that significantly reduces the time and expense typically associated with litigation.
Mediation and arbitration are frequently-used legal processes known as Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). Resolving a legal dispute through ADR avoids the substantial time and expense of litigation, the negative publicity associated with a trial, and the uncertainty of a decision by a jury or a judge. At McNeil Leddy & Sheahan, we recognize the importance of ADR. We are proud to offer the services of partner Joe McNeil to assist with expeditious and amicable resolutions of specific issues or entire disputes.
Joe is a graduate of Cornell University’s Institute on Conflict Resolution. He has used a variety of ADR techniques to assist individuals and entities in resolving matters in a neutral, efficient manner. With over 40 years of legal experience, Joe possesses the unique ability to quickly identify strengths and weaknesses in a party’s position, fairly evaluate a claim, and advise parties on potential outcomes in the event a matter were to proceed to trial. His varied experiences provide him with the knowledge and expertise necessary to effectively mediate or arbitrate a wide range of disputes, including labor and employment matters, business disputes, personal injury actions, real estate disputes, and probate matters.
