We created NeutralCheck after decades of experience with the good, the bad, and the sometimes very ugly alternative dispute resolution industry all over this country. In part, NeutralCheck is an effort to help our fellow attorneys hear “GREAT job picking her!” from a client after a successful mediation or arbitration, instead of, “Why the heck did you ever pick him?!” after a waste of money or a disaster. We’ve all heard both.
But even more, NeutralCheck seeks to elevate the practice of law, ensure transparency and fairness, and level the playing field for everyone. It does so by keeping neutrals truly neutral, providing real time, usable information for selecting a neutral for any case, and most of all, is totally free for attorneys. Becoming a NeutralCheck attorney member costs you nothing. Whether you use it once, or a thousand times, for a day or for a year, it’s FREE.
Why give attorneys all this for free? Because we honestly view NeutralCheck as a service to the bar and to the clients you represent. All we ask in return is that you take the time do do what other attorneys have done to help you. Simply evaluate and comment on one or more neutrals before whom you have practiced. It’s fast, easy and fun.
Your fellow members of the bar would sure appreciate your valuable insight and feedback. Here you can expand your professional network by reaching out directly to your colleagues, share experiences, and ask for help. You can also play a direct role in ensuring that neutrals act truly neutral, in recognizing truly great neutrals, and exposing those few with hidden bias, prejudice, or just plain lack of ability.
So join us in elevating the practice of law, and at the same time arm yourself with the information you need to make what is the most important choice in any case: the selection of your next mediator or arbitrator.[/mpc_icon_column]
