The best way I know of to win an argument is to start by being in the right.

What is Arbitration? An arbitration is essentially the same as a trial through the courts, but with several exceptions, noted here:  1)  The arbitrator (or panel of arbitrators) make(s) the decision, also called an “arbitration award”; 2)  There is generally no court reporter and the arbitration does not take place in a courtroom; 3) Absent some very narrow and strict exceptions, the arbitration award is binding…there is no right to appeal; 4) Since the arbitration is not a matter of public record, the parties’ dispute is private; 5) Discovery, or the process by which attorneys generally prepare their clients’ cases, is extremely limited; 6) The rules of evidence are relaxed somewhat so that the parties have a broader, more expanded opportunity to tell their stories; 7) With very few exceptions, it is much less expensive than litigation and trial; 8) An arbitration’s time frame is substantially less than that of litigation and trial.
