b2ap3_thumbnail_Mediator-Job-Title.jpg
I'm often asked how should parties select a mediator. It depends on who the parties are, what the dispute is, whether they have counsel, so there are a lot of different ways to choose a mediator. I think it's very important for people to know who they are selecting as their mediator because that will be the person that will help them come to avoluntary resolution of their dispute. There

The difference between mediation and arbitration is that arbitration is an alternative to a public trial. Its a private trial where the parties are hiring an arbitrator and the arbitrations are confidential as opposed to being in a public courtroom. Normally the rules around how to litigate a dispute are set by the arbitrator. There are rules, and the arbitrator makes a final and binding decision with very limited appeal rights.
Estate planning and probate
Essentially probate court is a court in which the stuff of a person who dies is determined to whom it goes to. Whether it goes to family members or whoever that person wanted to have their possessions. In Denver District Court they have a special judge assigned just to do probate work.

The difference between the two essentially is that a
b2ap3_thumbnail_At-Will-Employment.jpg
Colorado follows the law that a lot of states do in that it's presumed when you have an employment relationship, that it is at-will, which means you don't have any guarantee that you're going to be employed with that company or that employer for any set period of time or for any set salary or under any set conditions.
