Member American Arbitration Association (AAA) panel of arbitrators. See, www.adr.org. Mediation and arbitration services are available under contractual provisions, voluntary pre-suit mediation, court ordered arbitration/mediation. Reasonable rates at locations in through the United States. Arbitration is conducted under the applicable rules of the American Arbitration Association. The primary mediation approach is based upon a somewhat modified version of dialectic logic, see G. W. F. Hegel, Phenomenology Of The Mind (London: MacMillan 1931, reprinted ed., New York: Harper & Row 1967), in order to resolve conflicts of right in a new and concordant level of social reality, see G. W. F. Hegel, Philosophy of Right, (London: Oxford University Press 1967, trans. by T. M. Knox). Of course, from a mechanical viewpoint, mediation takes the usual form of the mediator moving between the parties and their counsel who are separated shortly after the start of the mediation session. The primary arbitration approach is based upon classic legal analytic methodology: facts applied to controlling law to obtain a just result.
