Kolesar & Leatham attorneys offer a wide range of talented and experienced legal professionals who offer sound advice and legal representation to individuals and businesses when circumstances require resolution of conflicts and disputes in the court system. In fact, many of our attorneys have been recognized as leaders in the fields of civil trial litigation, construction defects, bankruptcy, business disputes, employment, gaming, intellectual property, insurance law, personal injury, class actions and appellate practice.
The firm also offers professional dispute resolution for those matters the client would prefer to resolve without the necessity of complex, expensive litigation. In fact, creative dispute resolution processes are now the first choice of conscientious attorneys and business managers who would prefer to resolve disputes without the perils of litigation, which oftentimes is expensive, public and uncertain. Kolesar & Leatham offers legal professionals with decades of experience in resolving disputes through non-litigative strategies such as negotiation, mediation and binding/non-binding arbitration.
Kolesar & Leatham attorneys are regularly engaged to act as “neutrals” and assist parties in achieving resolution of disputes as mediators, arbitrators or in facilitating court-mandated settlement conferences. Our attorneys have not only practical experience as advocates for their clients, but specialty training as trusted neutrals in assisting parties seeking an early resolution without the uncertainty and expense of litigation. Kolesar & Leatham attorneys have received training from court-annexed arbitration programs, the American Arbitration Association and the Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution at Pepperdine University, among other professional ADR programs.
