Despite the challenges of the health crisis, the Court system has made valiant efforts to maintain access to justice for everyone. However, for the time-being, Courts have had no alternative but to put on pause the ability for people to file new cases that do not call for a judge’s attention on an emergency basis. We anticipate that due to the strong work of our Court system’s leaders, we will be back on track in the near term to once again have the ability to file any case. But even then, we will likely be contending with a backlog of existing cases that were put on hold when the crisis hit. Add to that an anticipated rise in the filing of new litigation, and this means it will take longer to get to a final resolution of the dispute.
At Cuddy & Feder, we are trained and qualified to provide mediation and arbitration services that can get your dispute resolved quickly and efficiently, even if no lawsuit has yet been filed. We can offer personalized and dynamic legal solutions for our clients to help you save years of potential litigation at significant cost savings.

Jordan Brooks, a partner in our litigation practice, is a trained mediator with a focus on Surrogate’s Court matters relating to such cases as will contests and contested accounting proceedings.
