Why Mediation (or Arbitration) Now?

In 2021, in the New York State Supreme Court alone there were over 75,000 new cases filed in the New York City courts, over 15,000 in Nassau County and over 12,000 in Suffolk County. Many of those cases won’t be resolved through the court system until well after the year 2025. And that doesn’t include all of the cases that were already pending before the pandemic that have been delayed as a result of court closures – not to mention all of the cases filed in the other courts, including civil and district courts, Surrogate’s Court, County court and the Court of Claims, among others.

If ever there was a time to take your case out of the court system and get it resolved through mediation or arbitration, now is the time.
