Firm Qualifications

The attorneys at Franklin & Prokopik take pride in their reputation for being aggressive and effective advocates for their clients during all phases of litigation. We recognize, however, that alternative dispute resolution is often an appropriate, and cost effective way to resolve a dispute. More and more litigation is being resolved by means of early mediation, sometimes before suit is even filed. In addition, binding arbitration is, at times, an advantageous way to resolve a particular issue or matter.

A number of attorneys at Franklin & Prokopik are trained, certificated and experienced mediators in various areas of the law. Such training and experience, coupled with the expansive knowledge we have acquired through our daily practice of particularized areas of the law, provides Franklin & Prokopik attorneys with the ability to arbitrate and mediate for outside parties and to expertly guide our own clients through the arbitration and mediation processes.
