Many employees across the country are vulnerable to being suddenly fired if their job is considered to be "at-will." If you are employed "at-will," it means that your employer can decide to fire you at any time, and for almost any reason. They can also fire you without giving you any reason at all.

Why arbitration is ideal for resolving construction disputes

Arbitration is a type of alternative dispute resolution (ADR). This approach to resolving differences with another party contrasts with litigation. Many construction contracts include arbitration clauses in them. These require homeowners and contractors to try to resolve their differences with the help of an arbitrator or mediator instead of in a North Carolina courtroom in front of a judge.

  • I recommend the law offices of Randolph M. James. He and his associate kept me informed throughout my case and were very knowledgeable about the facts surrounding my situation. Because of their experience, they were able to guide me to the proper venue where the judiciary was qualified to deal with complex issues such as mine. Thus, we received a favorable outcome. Should I need legal counsel in the future, I would obtain the services of Randolph M. James again.
