Mediate or Collaborate
Then if necessary, Litigate

We believe that traditional litigation is not the only way to resolve disputes.

Alternative dispute resolution allows us to work with clients to help resolve problems without the need to go to court. Donita King has the experience and knowledge to help clients reach an agreement.

Donita King Law Offices have used alternative dispute
resolution practices in the following areas:

  • Divorce

Donita King Law Offices works with each new client to review their case and determine the best method moving forward. We focus on what kinds of alternative dispute resolution is appropriate before resorting to litigation.

Your case could be resolved using the
following alternative dispute resolution methods:

Mediation Law Process - Alternative Dispute Resolution


Reach a mutual agreement through the use of a mediator. Two opposing parties sit down together with a trained mediator to help facilitate discussion. A mediator doesn’t give solutions or answers but helps the two sides communicate and hear each other to come to a mutual agreement.

Collaborative Law Process - Alternative Dispute Resolution


Make use of a team of professionals when choosing collaboration as your alternative dispute resolution. This option involves two opposing parties, lawyers, and other trained professionals like parenting and financial experts, to help reach an agreement. The collaboration process focuses on a team of people working together to reach a common goal.

Arbitration - Alternative Dispute Resolution


 As a preventative alternative dispute resolution, facilitation helps to ward off a dispute in the beginning stages of a disagreement. This option is often used between two or more parties who need help identifying everyone’s interests. Not all facilitations end in a mutual agreement, but rather help everyone understand each other.

If Alternative Dispute Resolutions Don’t Work:
