The Key To Intelligent Dispute Resolution

Civil litigation can pose moral, procedural and economic questions that make it hard for the uninitiated to envision a way out. At Gerner & Kearns Co., L.P.A., our knowledgeable attorneys have been bringing vital insights to both individuals and businesses in need of smart, effective resolutions to disputes for decades. Our clients' conflicts include commercial, contractual, employment, civil, banking, land use and zoning, real estate and construction-related matters. We are experienced and pragmatic advocates who have successfully resolved thousands of cases over the decades through negotiations, mediation, trials and appeals.

Understanding Your Dispute Resolution Options

One of the biggest misconceptions about civil litigation is that its outcome depends entirely on a trial. Although bringing your case before a judge or jury is an option, it is not the only way to resolve disagreements successfully. Our goal is to resolve the dispute as quickly as possible, with the least amount of expense and exposure to our client. Every aspect of a new referral is first evaluated to pursue alternative dispute resolution methods outside of court for minimal costs, such as:

  • Mediation or negotiation, where a lawyer or other legal representative intervenes on your behalf to seek a reconciliation solution that promotes your best interests
  • Arbitration, where a mutually agreed-upon third party makes the final binding decision
  • Conciliation, where an independent dispute resolver meets with you and the other parties together or separately to help you arrive at a satisfactory conclusion

However, if a case cannot be settled, our attorneys are fully prepared to litigate a case in a courtroom, drawing on extensive experience from the trial to appellate levels, in state and federal courts throughout the region.

We are experienced advocates who can successfully resolve a case through mediation, trial or appeal. We value strong relationships with our clients, listen to their needs and think outside the box to provide efficient solutions to their business and legal needs.

Which solution is right for you? It depends on the nuances of your case, so it's vital to evaluate the facts and legal circumstances. At Gerner & Kearns Co., L.P.A., we're passionate about protecting your rights and promoting your pursuit of the best possible outcome. We're always ready to help you stay in control.

Don't Let Litigation Get The Best Of You

Whether a trial judge resolves your civil matter amicably or it ends up in a contentious appeal, knowledge is everything. Your legal representative needs to keep you informed about how traditional and alternative dispute resolution methods function if you want to minimize your legal costs and secure a favorable result.
