2018 Survey of Alternative Dispute Resolution Providers


On Aug. 27, Virginia Lawyers Weekly provided the results of the VLW 2018 Alternative Dispute Resolution Survey.

This project provides information about ADR providers across Virginia. For a fee, participants had the opportunity to provide ba­sic information about their ADR businesses or practices. And for an additional fee, some providers opted to take an enhanced listing. In an enhanced listing, the provider can present a variety of facts about the ADR practice, including:

• Name, address and phone number of the practice

• Email address and website address

• A 100-word message describing the provider’s experience and practice

• Areas of emphasis/specialties, and geographic areas served

• Education and certifications

• Services available (mediation, arbitration, case evaluation, minitrials, collaborative law)

• Percentage of time devoted to ADR/mediation

• Total annual cases handled and percentage of mediations that reach settlement
