New Jersey law firm to provide mediation and arbitration services for family law cases, real estate disputes, business litigation and other matters

If a case goes to court, the litigants could be facing years of pre-trial motions before they even get to make their case. Once the trial is over, they could face further motions and appeals. If it's possible to achieve a fair resolution through mediation, the parties can significantly reduce their costs and save time.

A highly regarded Bergen County law firm has created a new area of practice to assist clients with an alternative way to resolve their disputes with other parties, outside of the courtroom.

The Law Offices of Benjamin G. Kelsen, Esq., a Teaneck-based law firm that is well-known for its work in the area of criminal defense law on behalf of New Jersey clients, has added a new Alternative Dispute Resolution practice to its range of client services. The firm now offers mediation and arbitration for business, personal and family law disputes.

"While it's important for everyone to have access to the courts in order to protect his or her rights, the fact is that there are many legal disputes that can be resolved through negotiations with the help of a neutral mediator," said Ben Kelsen, founding partner of The Law Offices of Benjamin G. Kelsen, Esq. "A mediator who is also a knowledgeable and experienced litigator can lend important insights to the dispute resolution process. We look forward to working with our clients to help them understand the range of likely outcomes in court and assist with achieving a resolution of their business, family or personal disputes."

According to Kelsen, there are a number of types of disputes where litigants may be able to save time, money and frustration by resolving the issues through mediation rather than litigation. These include disputes over matters such as: commercial, construction and other contracts; real estate agreements; and family issues, such as ownership of a home or family business.

"We believe that, while each case is different, mediation by a skilled lawyer is the most effective way to resolve many of these kinds of disputes," said Kelsen. "If a case goes to court, the litigants could be facing years of pre-trial motions before they even get to make their case. Once the trial is over, they could face further motions and appeals. If it's possible to achieve a fair resolution through mediation, the parties can significantly reduce their costs and save time."
