Arbitration is a type of dispute resolution process that many companies require when you sign a contract. It is less formal, expensive and quicker than traditional litigation conducted through the court system.

No. Often our demand letters will result in a favorable settlement that avoids arbitration. Also, many smaller companies do not require consumers to go through arbitration to resolve disputes.
Under the rules of the American Arbitration Association, consumers pay a maximum amount of $200 per case. The company is required to pay thousands of dollars under the rules to cover the remaining arbitration expenses.
Studies show that nearly half of the time consumers represent themselves in consumer arbitration cases and that they win approximately half of the time.
