Attorney Ray Moore earns arbitrator certification

Columbia – The South Carolina Board of Arbitrator and Mediator Certification has approved Murphy & Grantland attorney Ray Moore as an arbitrator.

The certification allows Moore to act as a neutral in both kinds of alternative dispute resolution in the state: arbitration and mediation. Both are legal options that avoid traditional litigation and trials.

“Trying cases is time consuming, expensive and uncertain, so both sides are often looking to settle before going to court,” said Moore. “The potential savings, plus our state’s mandate of an ADR process in civil suits, means that more and more professionals are needed to keep our courts from becoming backlogged.”

In addition to Moore, Murphy & Grantland’s alternative dispute resolution practice includes Henry Deneen, Ron Diegel and Anthony Livoti.
