Arbitration Services

Whether arbitration is required by a contractual provision or is voluntary pursuant to Section 44.104, Fla. Stat., The Resolution Center provides access to trained arbitrators in a professional setting for arbitration hearings.


Section 44.103, Fla. Stat. provides for non-binding arbitration.  The non-binding arbitration procedure allows for either a single arbitrator or a panel of arbitrators.  The non-binding arbitration is conducted informally.  Presentation of testimony and evidence is kept at a minimum and matters are presented to the arbitrators primarily through the statements and arguments of counsel. 


Arbitrators are, in effect, private judges selected by the parties themselves. Arbitrators have been described as “jurors selected by the parties” whose decision or award is substituted for the judgment of the courts.


Arbitration, in many ways, provides a degree of freedom from the formality of ordinary judicial proceedings. The arbitrator carefully considers the evidence, applies the law and then renders a fair decision. Once binding, the decision is enforceable by law.


The object of arbitration is to expedite and facilitate the resolution of disputes by avoiding formalities, delays and the expense of ordinary litigation.


The courts themselves have described arbitration as an important aspect of modern, commercial society which fulfills a significant need in settling disputes without having to resort to the courts.
