As the "Resolution Pro" and as managing partner of Mattar, D'Agostino & Gottlieb, LLP, Krista Gottlieb has long recognized that the cost and time expenditure associated with litigation does not always serve the client's best interests, nor does it meet their needs and preferences.
As either a litigator when needed and as a neutral mediator Ms. Gottlieb constantly seeks new and creative ways to help parties resolve issues, problems and litigation quickly, efficiently and cost effectively.
Appropriate Dispute Resolution
"), including mediation, arbitration, early case evaluation mechanisms and mini-trials, are some of the ways to accomplish that goal.
