Alternative dispute resolution (including arbitration and mediation) is typically more cost-effective and quicker than traditional litigation. Frequently, contracts require and courts may mandate that the parties participate in some form of alternative dispute resolution.

The members of the Tucker Arensberg Alternative Dispute Resolution Group have extensive experience in all forms of ADR including:

• Arbitration
• Mediation
• Early neutral evaluation
• Nonbinding arbitration
• Conciliation

Our attorneys have experience arbitrating and mediating matters in a wide variety of practice areas and industries including:

• Construction
• Contracts
• Family Law and Orphans’ Court disputes
• Fraudulent conveyances • Health Law

Our practice includes two senior litigators who are recognized leaders in mediation techniques and track records of successful negotiated resolutions. Gary Hunt is an elected member and Board Member of The Academy of Trial Lawyers of Allegheny County and the former President of the Allegheny County Bar Association. Stephen Greecher is a seasoned litigator who is called on frequently to serve as an arbitrator and mediator in litigation matters. Tucker Arensberg is also fortunate to have on its team Timothy Searer, a judge with 20 years of experience as a Pennsylvania Common Pleas Court trial judge and Judith Fitzgerald, a former chief judge for the United States Bankruptcy Court with over 25 years of experience. To the extent necessary, this group can call upon the support of the other 85 attorneys at the firm.
