At Serkland Law Firm, we understand that not all disputes need to be resolved in a courtroom, and sometimes it may be faster and more cost effective to resolve a case by using an Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) process.

We offer a variety of ADR services to resolve disputes. Our attorneys have utilized these procedures in cases involving various areas of law including contract, negligence, personal injury, torts claims, and more. We continually strive to achieve the best resolution by specifically tailoring the ADR process to our clients and their particular dispute.

Almost half of our attorneys have received formal training in mediation or arbitration. Our ADR attorneys are qualified neutrals under Rule 114 of the Minnesota General Rules of Practice and Rule 8.9 of the North Dakota Rules of Court, which means they are qualified to mediate or arbitrate any dispute in North Dakota and Minnesota. Collectively, our ADR attorneys have mediated or arbitrated well over 2,000 disputes and routinely assist parties in resolving their claims and disputes outside of litigation.


Typical cases and ADR processes used by Serkland ADR attorneys, mediators and arbitrators include the following:

  • AAA Arbitrations
  • Agriculture/Crop Arbitration
  • Binding Arbitration
  • Civil Mediation including wrongful death, personal injury and automobile accident mediations, construction disputes, insurance coverage, and claim disputes
  • Non-Binding Early Evaluation Arbitration

Whether you are in need of representation in an ADR proceeding or if you are looking for a mediator or arbitrator qualified to serve as a neutral in your case, we can help.
