Many people think there are only two options for resolving a dispute: negotiating a resolution or going to court. While those are viable options in many situations, there are considerable drawbacks to going to trial when it is not completely necessary, primarily the time, cost and emotional strife that is often involved.
Today, there are means of alternative dispute resolution available to individuals and families that wish to resolve their cases amicably. The availability of these methods of dispute resolution did not happen by accident. In fact, the law firm of Berg, Debele, DeSmidt & Rabuse, P.A., has been instrumental in creating and managing these processes in Minnesota, particularly the evolving area of cooperative law.
