Mediation & Arbitration Attorneys in Springfield, MO

Missouri Attorneys and Licensed Mediators for Alternative Dispute Resolution

Neale & Newman, L.L.P. is a sophisticated, cost-effective law firm that provides efficient solutions for the most complex legal problems. Though we are a large firm, we have small town roots and our Springfield attorneys treat each client like we treat our neighbors: with courtesy and respect.

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) can be achieved either through mediation or arbitration. Both approaches tend to be less expensive than litigating through the courts, and mediation can be even more cost-effective than arbitration.

We have licensed mediators on staff. Our lawyers have resolved disputes in many different areas of law through these processes. This includes arbitration of commercial law, personal injury, and labor law disputes through the National Labor Relations Board, as well as mediation of family law disputes.

The Benefits of Mediation

Mediation tends to be a more efficient, less expensive way of resolving disputes. In situations like family law, it often reduces bitter feelings between the divorcing spouses. Since both parties must agree to a final settlement, the settlement tends to be in each party’s best interest.



Certain types of disputes are required by law to go through arbitration. While arbitration was once simpler and less expensive than the court system, this is not necessarily the case anymore. Courts have become more efficient, and arbitration has become more complex.

Our experienced attorneys can bring you through the arbitration and mediation processes as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible. Based in Springfield, we practice in Missouri and other nearby states.
