When choosing a lawyer, it’s no surprise that you want someone with experience. This is doubly true in the lesser-known world of arbitration. Arbitration is advertised as an alternative to your usual Court of Law, but there are many tricks and difference between Arbitration and Court.
Big businesses know the tricks and the differences, and they use them to push consumers around. This was recently discussed in the L.A. Times.
