Florida courts are sending cases to non-binding arbitration before they obtain a trial date. This is another attempt to allow the parties to resolve the case on their own before the further time and expense of a jury or bench trial. As an arbitrator, Ms. Gilmour hears testimony and reviews the evidence provided by the parties and then decides the issues of the case.
Alternative dispute resolution involves more than mediation. For over twenty years Ms. Gilmour has conducted arbitrations throughout Florida. Kimberly is a Florida Supreme Court Qualified Arbitrator and public arbitrator for the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), as well as the Better Business Bureau (BBB) – Auto Line.
