Dispute Resolution

Bluffdale Law Firm

Our Professional Team Is Here To Help.


Dispute resolution is the process of resolving disputes between two or more parties. This can be done through negotiation, arbitration, or litigation. Dispute resolution is an important part of the court system, as it allows parties to come to a resolution without having to go to trial.

Negotiation is a process where both sides discuss the dispute and try to agree. This can be done with or without the help of a third party. If an agreement is reached, the dispute is resolved. The dispute may go to arbitration or litigation if an agreement cannot be reached.

Arbitration is a process where a neutral third party hears both sides of the dispute and makes a decision. The arbitrator’s decision is final and cannot be appealed. Arbitration is often used when both sides want to avoid a long and costly court battle.

Litigation is a process where each side tells their stories before a judge or jury. The judge or jury then decides who wins the case. Litigation can be expensive and time-consuming, so it is often used as a last resort.


Mediation is a process that allows two or more parties to agree outside of court. It is often used as an alternative to court and can help resolve disputes more quickly and cost-effectively. In mediation, the parties work with a mediator to negotiate an agreement. The mediator helps the parties communicate and explore different options and assists them in reaching a resolution that meets everyone’s needs.

Mediation is commonly used in family law, employment, and contract disputes. It can help resolve disputes because it allows the parties to control the outcome rather than leaving it up to a judge. Mediators cannot and will not make decisions for the parties but help them come to an agreement with which they are all happy.

Why Use Mediation?

There are excellent reasons why people might choose to use mediation before going to court. Some of the benefits of mediation include:

1) Reduced costs – Mediation is often cheaper than going to court. Mediation does not involve the same expenses as litigation, such as a court, attorney, and expert witness fees.

2) Faster resolution – Mediation typically resolves disputes more quickly than litigation. Parties can come up with their agreement without having to wait for a judge to decide on a settlement.

3) More flexibility – In mediation, the parties have more control over the outcome of the dispute. This allows them to create an agreement that meets their needs and interests.

4) Better communication – By working with a mediator, the parties can improve their communication skills. This can be beneficial in future negotiations and dealings with each other.

Elder Care Disputes

When it comes to elder care, disputes are bound to happen. Family members may disagree on what’s best for the elderly parent or relative, leading to tension and disagreements. At times, these disputes can even turn into full-blown legal battles.

Fortunately, lawyers can help resolve these disputes to benefit everyone involved. By working with an attorney, families can clearly understand their legal rights and options. Our goal is to help you come to a fair and beneficial resolution for all involved.

In addition, attorneys can also help protect elderly loved ones from abuse and exploitation. They can guide how to spot signs of abuse and help take action to stop any abuse that may be taking place.

Ultimately, when it comes to elder care disputes, lawyers can be a valuable asset. We are here to help protect elderly loved ones from abuse and exploitation.

Estates & Trusts

When someone dies, their estate is divided according to their will – or if they didn’t have a will, according to state law. Disputes can arise during this process, often due to disagreements about the interpretation of the will or the validity of certain documents.

Lawyers can help by reviewing the will and related documents and providing legal advice and representation in court if necessary. They can also help negotiate settlements between the parties involved in the dispute.

The lawyers’ experience with estates and trusts can be invaluable in resolving disputes quickly and fairly. They understand the complex legal issues that can arise in these situations and how to advocate for their client’s interests.

If you’re faced with an estate or trust dispute, it’s important to seek legal assistance as soon as possible.

Estate & Trust Litigation

Estate and trust litigation is a civil case that arises when there is a dispute over an estate or a trust distribution. This type of litigation can be complex and expensive, so it is important to understand your rights if you are involved in an estate or trust dispute.

One common conflict in litigation is over the validity of a will or trust. The person who created it may not be mentally competent at the time, or the will or trust could have been executed better.

Another common dispute is over the distribution of assets. This may involve allegations that the estate or trust was not administered fairly or that some beneficiaries were unfairly excluded from receiving property.

If you are involved in an estate or trust dispute, it is important to seek legal advice. The Rowe & Walton PC attorneys have experience handling these cases and can help you protect your rights.
