A legal dispute can be a costly, time-consuming affair. However, an experienced dispute resolution attorney can help you explore alternatives to litigation that save you time and money.

At Fortson, Bentley and Griffin, we offer the services of advocates with significant experience in efficient mediation services in complex business disputes, tort actions, divorce and family law matters, and other disputes.

We represent clients throughout Athens and Northeast Georgia and are focused on helping you achieve your legal objectives in a timely, cost-efficient manner.


Mediation occurs when two disputing legal parties work with a neutral third party mediator to come to agreement on contested issues. Mediation can be applied to business disputes, divorce disputes, and a wide range of other legal disputes.

Our mediators utilize their significant litigation experience to assist the parties in analyzing their cases and negotiating toward a satisfactory resolution of the dispute.


Our attorneys represent clients in arbitration and various other forms of alternative dispute resolution, including commercial disputes, construction disputes and other matters being handled in accordance with AAA arbitration rules or other arbitration forums. In many areas of law, such as healthcare law, disputes must be resolved through arbitration. We have successfully represented numerous clients through arbitration and are prepared to protect your rights.
