Mediation

Church Church Hittle and Antrim has an established practice group focused on providing high quality, competitively priced Mediation and Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) services. Pursuant to the Indiana Rules for Alternative Dispute Resolution, a range of ADR options are available. Contact us and let us help you resolve your case. We can assist you in any of the following areas:

  1. Mediation- Mediation is an informal and non-adversarial process by which the Mediator assists the disputing parties to reach a mutually acceptable agreement. We have a number of qualified Mediators ready to assist you.
  2. Arbitration- Arbitration is a process in which a neutral third person or a panel designated by the parties, considers the facts and arguments presented by the parties and renders a decision. The decision may be binding or non-binding.
  3. Mini-trials – A mini-trial is a settlement process in which each side presents a highly abbreviated summary of its case to “senior officials” who are authorized to settle the case.
  4. Summary Jury Trials- A summary jury trial is an abbreviated trial with a jury in which the litigants present their evidence in an expedited fashion. The parties and the jury are guided by a neutral serving in the capacity of presiding judge.
  5. Private Judges- This is a process in which the litigants agree to employ a private judge to resolve a pending lawsuit. The private judge must be a former judge. This process can be utilized to resolve cases founded upon contract or tort law.
  6. Optional Early Mediation – ADR Rule 8 allows parties to voluntarily resolve their disputes prior to initiating litigation. Find out more about this early resolution opportunity by contacting us.
  7. Christian Conciliation - Christian Conciliation is a process for reconciling people and resolving disputes out of court in a biblical manner. The process is conciliatory rather than adversarial in nature that encourages honest communication and reasonable cooperation rather than unnecessary contention and advocacy. General information on Christian Conciliation can be found here: https://www.aorhope.org/icc-faq.  

Each of the options has its own advantages that may be appealing to attorneys and their clients. Members of our Mediation and ADR Practice Group are prepared to discuss the options with you by email or phone call.

Each member of the Mediation and ADR Practice group brings their unique experience and skill set and they are dedicated to helping resolve your case. Additional information about any member of the CCHA Law Mediation and ADR Practice Group may be found on the CCHA Law website: www.cchalaw.com

The administrator for the CCHA Law Mediation and ADR Practice Group (Camilla Jones camilla@cchalaw.com) has access to the calendars of the participating group members and is ready, willing, and able to collaborate with attorneys to establish dates for your preferred Mediation or ADR option.

Steve David, retired Justice of the Indiana Supreme Court, is also available to provide information regarding both the areas of practice that are involved in an ADR undertaking as well as assessing which form of ADR is best suited given the circumstances involved in your case.
