Early neutral evaluation

Early neutral evaluation provides clients with an assessment of the merits of their case by a neutral expert.  This can serve as a "reality check" for both clients and lawyers.  This can help attorneys settle cases before litigation spins out of control.


In large, complex cases, a meeting with a neutral expert at the beginning of the case, can focus the direction of settlement negotiations.  This meeting is done at a very early stage in the case with its purpose not being to produce a settlement, but instead, to pave the path for constructive settlement negotiations.


The Alternative Group provides early neutral evaluation services through Chris F. Gillotti and Robb D. Bunde.  With 48 and 24 years experience in family law respectively, Attorney Gillotti and Attorney Bunde bring a wealth of insight to the table.  Both are members of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, a national organization for attorneys practicing family law at the highest level, and were voted Pennsylvania Super Lawyers in Family Law from 2009 - 2015. In addition, Attorney Gillotti was named The Pittsburgh Family Law Attorney of the Year in 2011 by Best Lawyers..
