It has proven to resolve 70% of the cases brought before it. GK chesterton (English writer, poet, philosopher, journalist, orator, lay theologian....)It isn't that they can't see the solution. It's that they can't see the problem. Joseph Grynbaum, P.E. (founder of a technical advisory & consulting firm in power plant design, construction & operations)An ounce of mediation of worth a pound of arbitration and a ton of litigation. William_Burger2 (Former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court)Our "litigated court" system is too costly, too painful, too destructive, and too inefficient for really civilized people. Warren_Burger (Former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court)Traditional litigation is a mistake that must be corrected. Trails by adversarial contest "litigation" must go the way of ancient trial by battle and blood. Marjorie_Steinberg (Respected LA Family Law Judge)By the time we see cases in court; most people have spent all of their community assets on the divorce itself. By that time, we're just dividing debts and allocating attorney's fees. Sandra Day O’Conner (Former Associate Justice of the Supreme Court)The courts should not be the place where resolution of a dispute begins. They should be the place where the dispute ends after ADR has been considered and tried.
