“ADR” is Alternative Dispute Resolution. Mediation is a form of ADR using a process of a “neutral” mediator to help parties resolve lawsuits through negotiation.
“Of Counsel” is a legal term of art. It connotes a typically elder lawyer giving wise counsel or advice. It is often a more senior or experienced lawyer who has experience, knowledge, cool temperament, and wisdom to share.
The acronym for the firm is “ADROC” which signals both rock-like strength and the Latin phrase ‘ad hoc’ meaning a solution for a specific purpose – here resolution of disputes.
Our guiding philosophy is expressed in our trademarked company slogan, “Active Litigators Mediating”.
