However, if a lawsuit if filed, Reager & Adler has the depth of experience necessary to successfully represent the interests of individuals, businesses, or nonprofit organizations. While most lawyers rarely try cases, Reager & Adler has represented clients before judges and juries in courts throughout the Commonwealth.

Arbitration and Mediation

Arbitration is a cost-effective alternative to going to court. A dispute is submitted to one or more impartial persons for a final and binding decision. Mediation is a negotiation process that guides parties to an agreeable settlement while preserving the business relationship.

Select a proven resource

Construction law claims are unique because they often involve complex issues of liability and damages. We explain these issues to the client and work to arrive at the net value of the claim. This is where our decades of experience count most. Our assessment of net value to the client drives our advice. We work to settle cases where possible and litigate when necessary. This approach, which focuses on value to the client, has consistently yielded positive outcomes as evidenced by the fact that our greatest source of new clients is referrals from existing clients.—Ted Adler
