Business-savvy attorneys for dispute resolution

The attorneys at Jarrell, Hicks & Waldman, PC help companies throughout Caroline, Fauquier, Hanover, King George, Orange, Spotsylvania and Stafford counties resolve disputes with contractors, service providers, distributors, employees, tenants, customers and vendors. We help you choose the most appropriate method of dispute resolution, including:

  • Business mediation: During mediation, the mediator acts as a neutral go-between for the parties. The mediator’s role is to facilitate a negotiated resolution to the dispute. The mediator doesn’t give legal advice and doesn’t act as a judge. Mediation generally takes far less time and costs far less money than full-blown litigation. Our firm is well-versed in mediation cases in the greater Spotsylvania and Fredericksburg areas.
  • Business arbitration: Arbitration is a dispute-resolution process in which an arbitrator or panel of arbitrators acts as a private judge. The arbitrator’s decision can be binding or nonbinding, depending on the ground rules of the arbitration. Arbitration offers great privacy than taking a dispute to the public courts, and also is generally swifter and less expensive than traditional litigation.
  • Business litigation: When mediation or arbitration is inappropriate or unsuccessful, the parties often end up in court. Our attorneys have decades of experience litigating partnership conflicts, contract cases, business torts and real estate disputes for clients in Spotsylvania and the surrounding areas.
