How Is The Arbitrator Selected For The Proceeding?
Under the rules of the American Arbitration Association, arbitrators are selected by having each side strike (remove) any unacceptable arbitrators from a list of usually between eight to twelve randomly selected names from the AAA list of Arbitrators. These names come from a list of approved arbitrators with expertise in various fields (consumer disputes, employment, etc). Potential arbitrators who are in some way interested in the outcome; e.g. friends of either party or having a financial interest in the outcome of the dispute, are ineligible.
Lead Counsel independently verifies attorneys by conferring with state bar associations and conducting annual reviews to confirm that an attorney practices in their advertised practice areas and possesses a valid bar license for the appropriate jurisdictions.
