Wheeling Arbitration Information

Is Arbitration Best for You?

A cost-effective alternative to settle a dispute without a trial is arbitration. Disputes are resolved by an impartial third party, who presides over an arbitration hearing at which each side presents its case. The arbitrator is chosen by the participants, who agree to accept the arbitrators' decision.

Should You Have an Arbitration Lawyer?

You may enter arbitration without legal counsel, but using a Wheeling lawyer to help you prepare for the hearing can make a difference in the outcome. The lawyer can review the legalities of the dispute, guide you through the arbitration procedure, and prepare the terms of arbitration and other documents.

Best Time to Seek Legal Help

No matter what your legal issue may be, it is always best to seek legal help early in the process. An attorney can help secure what is likely to be the best possible outcome for your situation and avoid both unnecessary complications or errors.

How to Prepare for Your Initial Consultation

Prepare for your consultation by writing down notes of your understanding of the case, jot down questions and concerns for the attorney, and gather your documents. Remember that you are trying to get a sense of whether the attorney has your trust and can help you address your legal issues. Questions should include how the attorney intends to resolve your issue, how many years he/she has been practicing law and specifically practicing in your area, as well as how many cases similar to yours the attorney has handled. It can also be helpful to broach the subject of fees so that you understand the likely cost and structure of your representation by a specific attorney and/or legal team.

How will an attorney charge me?

A reputable attorney will be very upfront about how he/she will charge you. The three most common fee structures that attorneys use to charge for their services are:

  • Bill by the hour
  • Contingent fee agreement
  • Flat fee agreement

Depending on your specific legal situation, it's possible that only one type of fee structure is available. For instance, criminal defense attorneys almost always bill by the hour. In a flat fee arrangement, an attorney accepts a one-time payment to help you resolve your issue. With a contingent fee agreement, the client pays little to nothing upfront and the attorney receives a percentage of the money recovered if you win your case.
