Why Come to Zeytoonian Center for Dispute Resolution
Over 95% of Cases Filed in Courts Get Settled
That's right, over 95% of cases filed in courts get settled and never go to trial. Litigation can be devastating in all senses of the word, so rather than walk down the painful litigation road only to settle later, we want to walk with our clients down the settlement road, and only litigate if we can’t first settle.
Selecting the Best Dispute Resolution Process is Critical
Our approach is unlike other traditional dispute resolution methods in which you are either not involved much at all or involved in a way in which you have little input. We believe in the sovereignty of our client and we work with you, as both your trusted legal advisor and process facilitator, both in determining how to approach your dispute as well as deciding how it will be resolved. It is important to see the situation clearly and develop a sound strategy and plan of action before responding to any employment, business, family or organizational challenge. We take the time, and make the investment with you up front, working with you to approach the dispute strategically, finding and then using the best dispute resolution method for your specific circumstances and particular dispute.

Efficient Dispute Resolution Representation
It is essential that your lawyer give you solid legal advice, protect your rights and work to satisfy your interests. It is equally vital that your lawyer represent you in a way that is cost and time-efficient, in a way that works best for your circumstances and situation, and in a way that is respectful of and consistent with your organization’s mission and business philosophy.
You Control The Dispute Resolution Process and Outcome
We believe you should have control over the process and the decision-making. We don’t suggest that the dispute go to arbitration based on a supposed premise that it’s preferable and more manageable than litigation, or because it gives parties a binding determination, or because parties can pick (and pay for) the judge they choose. Arbitration is becoming more and more like litigation and less and less like “alternative” dispute resolution. Rather than have our clients give up their decision-making to a third party, we want to facilitate the sovereignty of the client. If they cannot develop and create their own good resolution, tailor made for their needs and circumstances, only then might we suggest hiring a third party to decide how to end – but not necessary resolve – the dispute.
