|Alternative Dispute Resolution|
The parties seeking to submit a dispute to ADR need to complete a Request For ADR form and submit it to the Lancaster Bar Association, which must represent that all parties to the action view ADR as a potential aid to the resolution of their dispute. In addition, the parties must also complete and sign either a Mediation Agreement or an Arbitration Agreement, using the prepared forms, and the ADR Fee of $750.
This fee includes a $150 administrative fee for the Bar Association and a $600 mediator/arbitrator fee for the preparation and attendance at the first ADR conference. The initial conference can last up to two hours in duration, with any additional time billed at $200/hour, payable in advance.
