A: An Illinois attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. Here are a few very basic and general facts about arbitration. It can be more economical and quicker than traditional litigation. Certain formalities under civil procedure codes could be eased in the interest of resolution. But these are only generalities for ALL arbitration in general.

There's more to it. Attorneys who handle arbitration tend to be experienced in the substantive elements of the matters they handle. Arbitration is an alternate dispute resolution tool used in MANY different settings. So, while certain attributes of arbitration could be standard across the board, you should consider consulting with an attorney familiar with the substantive law aspects of your case - employment law, workers' comp, disability, or other elements of law that are relevant. If you reached out to law firms, they should probably be able to advise you on what type of attorney is best suited for your matter. Good luck
