The Law Offices of Paul Casaudoumecq always considers the most cost effective mechanisms for dispute resolution. Many of today's court's mandate Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), and unfortunately, many do not. The firm is experienced at handling all forms of ADR including but not limited to:

• Binding Arbitration,
• Mediation,
• Non-Binding Arbitration,
• Voluntary Settlement Conferences, and
• Face to face meetings when appropriate.

The firm has handled literally hundreds of Arbitrations and Mediations with a 99% successful resolution rate. The Partners alone have over 19 years experience in using Arbitration and Mediation as an alterative to expensive Trial Procedures, which can be 10 times more costly than ADR.

The firm is experienced in handling more expensive and highly risky Binding Arbitrations, Bench Trials and Jury Trials when it is in the client's best interests. Additionally, Appeals to State and Federal Courts are handled within the firm on a case by case basis.

The firm logo incorporates several elements of the firm's past and the future.

The Eagle:
The firm looks to the Eagle as symbolic of the United States of America, of the best that this country represents and of overall excellence and achievement.

The Scales of Justice:
The scales of Justice are emblematic of each Attorney's ethical obligation to seek Justice for each and every client. Additionally, the scales are a primary symbol of Justice for all citizens as indicated on the official seal of the Supreme Court of the State of California. Each attorney in the firm has been admitted to practice before California's Supreme Court.

The Counter Charging Lions and Scrolls of the Interior Shield:
The Lions & Scrolls symbolize the firm's commitment to serious, committed and successful representation of each client through superior strength, superior will and superior knowledge.

The Firm Motto:
The firm motto is "Altiora Petimus". Translated from Latin the motto reads "We Seek Higher Things." This Latin inscription was originally found in the seal of the California Geological Survey. In the 1860's this group of intrepid explorers was charged with exploring and mapping the entire state to catalog the natural resources. During their travels members of the survey made sveral first ascents of the highest peaks in the nation.
