FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Queens, NY) Michael Manoussos & Company PLLC () proudly announces the managing member of the firm Michael Manoussos has been certified and appointed as an arbitrator in the New York City Civil Court, Small Claims Part. Mr. Manoussos believes in doing good in the community and volunteers his time in this position to help with the congested court docket. Arbitrators work to resolve disputes without the need of a judge.
“The arbitrator serves as an unbiased third party in a civil dispute, in which the parties have agreed to allow the arbitrator to decide the dispute. The use of an arbitrator greatly alleviates the court’s congested docket and reduces the length of time litigants must wait to have their case heard and decided,” Michael Manoussos, of Michael Manoussos & Company PLLC (mmlaw-pllc.com), announces.
Arbitration is a relatively speedy and fair process, as the arbitrator is neutral and assesses the facts of the case in conjunction with the controlling law to render a fair and just decision. The arbitrator’s award is final and not subject to appeal.
“Litigants find value in opting for an arbitrator to resolve their legal conflict. The monetary limit in the small claims part is $5,000, so claims are relatively modest in magnitude, $5,000 being the maximum. There’s a cost-benefit analysis that litigants must appreciate. Time is money and time is convenience; the parties do not want to appear numerous times in court awaiting for their turn in a long line to get their dispute heard and resolved. By opting for resolution by an arbitrator, the parties can get their case decided on their first court appearance. That’s efficient and effective.” Manoussos exclaims.
Arbitrators are experienced attorneys who are trained and certified and take an oath to discharge their duties justly. Especially for Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Bronx and Staten Island, arbitrators play a valuable part in our civil legal system. “Arbitrators strive to achieve substantial justice in every case they hear and decide,” says Manoussos.
