Neutral Evaluation

Neutral Evaluation is a voluntary, consensual, non-binding process in which a Neutral evaluates the merits of a dispute.  Each side has an opportunity to present information and supporting arguments regarding their case. The Neutral will evaluate, based on his/her expertise, the strengths and weaknesses of the claims, supporting evidence and possible outcomes.  The Neutral’s evaluation is a form of legal information that is provided impartially.  The process is confidential, so the results are not admissible in court.  Neutral Evaluation offers a way for parties to gather information as a means to resolving their dispute.
