The Importance of Selecting the Right Mediator or Arbitrator
You would be surprised at how difficult it is for attorneys to agree on a mutually acceptable mediator or arbitrator to hear a personal injury case.

The problem is that often certain mediators and arbitrators have reputations as being plaintiff-friendly, or, conversely, defense-friendly.
Choosing the right neutral is tough, but it can make all the difference in your case.
