Welcome to Duff Law & Mediation, PLLC. We provide top notch alternative dispute resolution services to companies, individuals, and government agencies. Our principal, Candace R. Duff, is an attorney, a certified Circuit Civil and Appellate mediator, and an arbitrator, who has served the legal and alternative dispute resolution needs of banks, corporations, developers, individuals and agencies in a variety of practice areas for the past twenty five years.
Ms. Duff is a firm believer in the power of alternative dispute resolution to help parties resolve disputes in lieu of or short of trial. Having practiced as a trial attorney for decades, she understands that clients want to save costs and don’t necessarily wish to leave the fate of their cases in the hands of a judge or a jury who might not have expertise in the subject matter of the claim.
Duff Law operates under the principle and belief that alternative dispute resolution, and more specifically mediation, puts the power back into the hands of the parties to decide the outcome of a dispute. In mediation, the parties have an opportunity to fashion creative resolutions they wouldn’t otherwise be able to achieve within the confines of a courtroom. The confidential nature of the mediation process also affords the parties an opportunity to be more candid in their communications which increases the chances for settling disputes.
