Arbitration is a fairly simple process, however just like a traditional court case, it is often easier with the help of a professional. The consumer law lawyers at Agruss Law Firm, LLC are experienced in arbitration cases and can help you through the process from start to finish to get a fair resolution.
Once you contact our office, we will review your complaint, then create and send the necessary legal documents on your behalf to the other party. This may be a bank, phone company, cable company, gym, internet service provider, or credit card company to name a few. Our experts will guide and support you as you take on the “big guys”, ensuring that you get fair representation.
During arbitration, both parties will present their claims in a similar manner as a court case. While arbitration is typically less formal than litigation, each side will present evidence, call witnesses, and give testimony. Both parties are typically represented by an arbitration lawyer to ensure that the case goes as smoothly as possible. Once each side has presented their case, the arbitrator will consider all the evidence and make a ruling. This ruling will be legally binding, however in some cases it may be appealed.
Arbitration has become more popular in recent years as an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) method due to a few factors. These include:
- Lower cost-While there are costs involved with arbitration, including the cost(s) of hiring an arbitrator and lawyer, many contracts involve a “cost-shift” clause, where the “loser” pays for the costs associated with arbitration.
- Expediency-The average arbitration case is settled in just over a year—most court cases take an average of 18 months to three (3) years.
- Flexibility-Arbitration can be scheduled around the lives of both parties, whereas court cases are held during typical business hours/days.
- Less hostility-Arbitration is typically less hostile than a court case—both parties are encouraged to work together towards a resolution.
- Privacy-Arbitration cases are often kept confidential.

My story is about Prestige Financial, Six years ago and after my bankruptcy discharged I went to purchase a new car. The dealership got my financing through prestige, big mistake. After one year I asked to get refinanced at a lower interest rate but I was denied by prestige. Another year goes by and I then asked for the payout amount and it was maybe about $2000 less than when I got the car, so I told them to please pick it up because most of my payment went towards interest and barely nothing towards the principle. It took them two months to pick the car up and now three years later they are suing me for over $15000.00 plus there attorneys fees. The attorney has frightened me by threatening judgements and garnishments if I don't agree to a payment arrangement. I have read so many reviews of how they have done this to 100s of others and I'm hoping that someone can help me to fight them. Thank you for listening

Hi Tina. Let my law firm help you with this situation. You're correct, Prestige Financial has done this to many other consumers, each of whom was likely scared or bullied into a situation they couldn't get out of. I am going to give you a call to discuss this further and we can work with you on resolving your issues with Prestige Financial. Thanks, Mike
