I am Arbitration Man.
I have been an arbitrator in Small Claims Court in New York City for many years.
Small Claims Courts in New York State serve more people than all of its other courts combined.
Small Claims is truly a people’s court. It is open to all. They come to be heard. They come for justice. The proceedings are informal. The cases and the way they are treated by me are not.
I have changed the names of the parties and some facts to protect their privacy.
