Dispute Resolution

Alternative Dispute Resolution

Our law firm has attorneys formally trained and practice in each of the below listed Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) methods. The primary purpose of ADR is to avoid the cost of costly litigation by substituting other methods to resolve disputes.

These methods are as follows:

  • Arbitration: Arbitration is the submission of a dispute, by agreement of the parties involved in that dispute, to one or more impartial persons for a final and binding decision. The impartial person(s) deciding the matter, typically known as an Arbitrator(s), normally provides the parties with a written decision within a specified time period, as agreed by the parties and the Arbitrator(s).
  • Mediation: Unlike arbitration, mediation is a non-binding process conducted by an impartial third party, known as a Mediator, whose purpose is to facilitate communication and negotiation with the objective that the parties reach a voluntary decision to the dispute.
  • Fact-Finding: Disputes can occur because the parties are in disagreement regarding relevant facts involved in or which caused the dispute. A Fact-Finder is a third-party neutral who is appointed by the parties to gather and review the facts of the dispute and to provide the parties with an oral or written opinion as to the proper interpretation and/or application of the facts to the disputed matter. The Fact-Finder’s opinion is non-binding on the parties.

Typically, the services provided in connection with one or more of the above methods are associated with employment or business-related issues and disputes.

Client Testimonials

We recently closed on our Property in Chicago and I have to say, Frank Ponticelli and his team did a fantastic job. Frank and his staff were very attentive to all the closing documents and the quality of the work was nothing but professional and attentive. My husband and I are so grateful for Vito Ponticelli's passion, dedication, and professionalism. We've hired lawyers before, but Vito Ponticelli and his team are truly the best we have ever worked with. Thank you so much!

Ponticelli & Vito is absolutely amazing. They are very professional and knowledgeable at what they do. I’ve used their service twice now and they always take their time to make sure my wife and I understand every detail of the legal process. Frank Ponticelli was there from start to finish both times. The people at his office were also very polite and quick to respond whenever a call or email was sent to them. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience both times. I highly recommend Ponticelli & Vito.

I used Frank for a real estate transaction and couldn’t have been happier with the results. Great interactions, very helpful with any questions I had, and very fair and reasonable prices. I would definitely recommend Frank to anyone looking for legal help.
