"The fast, inexpensive, civilized way to
settle your lawsuits and disputes."
Dennis Torres, MDR
"The entire legal profession…lawyers, judges, law teachers…has
become so mesmerized with the stimulation of the courtroom contest
that we tend to forget that we ought to be healers of conflicts.
Trials by adversarial contest must in time go the way of the ancient
trial by battle and blood. Our system is too costly, too painful,
too destructive, too inefficient for a truly civilized people."
Chief Justice Warren Burger
1984 State of the Judiciary Address
