What about Alternate Dispute Resolution - sounds good, so what's it all about?
Be very careful! The Court ADR program known as the PCTJ program takes away your rights! There are some important facts you should know before agreeing to enter this program. This program is appropriate for some types of cases but certainly not for all types of cases. Make sure you know the law and the facts before getting in to the program because, despite what you may be told, you can not just get out of it if it is not working for you.
