In 1982, our vision began for a better, less complicated legal system.

 

Our Mission

To resolve your litigation, lawsuits, and legal cases with expert mediators, arbitrators and negotiators who can settle your dispute.

 

The Settle the Dispute Group is the leading litigation firm with experts of the alternative dispute resolution (ADR) profession. As expert attorneys, judges, and lawyers in the Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia area, the Settle the Dispute Group now serves several cities across the world.  

In fact, Settle the Dispute Group, invented the "online mediation" process which allows parties outside of Washington DC to engage in online mediation and arbitration of complex disputes.  That means if you live outside of Washington DC, Maryland, or Virginia, we're still able to help you resolve your legal, civil and commercial disputes. 

Our broader philosophy is to reform the legal system by training attorneys around the world to negotiate a settlement before dragging cases into muddy court systems.
