Arbitration is simply a form of dispute resolution. It is the private determination of a dispute by an independent judge or arbitrator. In some employment situations, the parties have agreed to resolve employment related issues through arbitration. If your employment matter must proceed through arbitration rather than the court system, an arbitrator or panel of arbitrators will hear the facts of your case and will decide which party prevails.  Whether you are an employee or employer, we offer representation.


Atty. Gray also serves as an Arbitrator through the American Arbitration Association (AAA). With over twenty-five (25) years of experience in employment law, Arbitrator Gray is poised to preside over any employment matter.


Mediation is also a form of dispute resolution. Through mediation, the parties and their attorneys meet in a neutral environment and discuss settlement. There is no judge involved. During mediation, the parties typically exchange monetary settlement offers in an effort to end a lawsuit. Atty. Gray serves as a Certified Mediator approved to mediate state and federal court cases. In addition, Atty. Gray serves as a Mediator through the American Arbitration Association (AAA).
