Watts McCray is recognised among Australia’s leading family law specialists. The firm has made a reputation for settling disputes without the need for a court hearing. Their lawyers are adept at alternative dispute resolution or ADR. In cases where the matter must go to court, they provide efficient and effective court representation ensuring that the client is represented in the best way.
Distinguished jurist Sir Laurence Street, also known as the ‘Godfather of ADR’ in Australia saw it as an idea whose time had come. In 1991 in an article in the Australian Dispute Resolution Journal he said, “Arbitration has come of age. Mediation is being taught and practised. The holistic inter-relation between the procedures in the dispute resolution spectrum is becoming more generally recognised and understood. Practising lawyers are now conscious of their professional obligation to advise clients on the selection of the procedures best suited to the case in hand.”
Alternative dispute resolution stands for any means of settling a dispute outside the courtroom. ADR includes the use of early neutral evaluation, negotiation, conciliation, mediation, and arbitration. This method is specially sought after in times when there is considerable delay in getting justice through the court system which also causes escalation in the costs and increasing anxiety for the litigant. Many clients prefer the alternate dispute resolution method as it paves a faster and less expensive means of addressing their problem. This is also encouraged as it is the less hostile path to achieve a successful outcome in the case.
