Arbitration

 
“When will mankind be convinced and agree to settle their difficulties by arbitration?” Benjamin Franklin

Duff Law & Mediation, PLLC provides arbitration services.  Its principal, Candace Duff, is a Florida Supreme Court qualified arbitrator and a member of the American Arbitration Association’s Roster of Neutrals (Construction and Commercial Panels).

As a civil trial attorney, Ms. Duff is acutely aware that, in some cases, the costs of arbitration can approach that of litigation if the arbitrator allows discovery and other costs to spiral out of control.  She is also aware that some arbitrators have been perceived by litigants as “splitting the baby” in their decisions.  As a result, she believes in taking a proactive approach to managing arbitration proceedings in a manner that suits the parties’ needs but does not allow costs to escalate unduly.  She is also a firm believer in making decisions based on the facts and evidence presented and not “splitting the baby” so to speak.
