Asked in Arbitration / Mediation Law for Arizona

Q: When can we submit additional evidence along with a counterclaim during arbitration?

We are the respondent, claimant initially filed with AAA for arbitration in Arizona. Counsel has been removed and we have been given leave to represent ourselves (company). During a search of the prior documents submitted we noticed that there has never been a filing for a counterclaim. The evidence we have collected leads to damages suffered by us. We have oral arguments scheduled for this week via Zoom.

A: An Arizona attorney should advise, but your question remains open for several days and your arbitration is this week. Until you're able to reach a local attorney, one option is to check if the Arbitrator's Case Administrator could offer guidance. Good luck
