BEWARE of ARBITRATION
While alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation and non-binding arbitration, can be helpful to resolve a legal conflict, binding arbitration clauses often strip unsuspecting consumers of their constitutional right to a trial by jury.
In many instances, such arbitration clauses force consumers to have their dispute resolved through a private judging mechanism that is bought and paid for by the big business with whom they are engaged in a dispute.
Attorney Wells cautions her clients against signing any document containing an arbitration clause without the counsel of a seasoned attorney. She diligently advocates consumer-friendly legislation preserving her clients' constitutional right to have their case heard before their peers in a fair and balanced venue. Attorney Wells' clients have testified before Congress on Capitol Hill regarding the unconscionability of binding arbitration.
If you have questions regarding an arbitration clause, contact Attorney Wells, before you sign!
