FairClaims is an Online Service That Legally Resolves Small Claims Cases

Small claims trials can be crucially important for the plaintiff and defendant, but the relatively small sums in those cases place an expensive burden on the legal system, which is why FairClaims hopes to bring the trials out of the courtroom altogether. The online service provides legally binding decisions on small claims matters by virtually assigning each case to a professional mediator or a summary judgement in front of an arbitrator.

FairClaims is available for both private individuals and for businesses. The service costs just slightly more to file a claim than through traditional court channels ($79 versus $75), but it also adjudicates cases in three weeks or less, as compared to multiple months in the courts.

All of the arguments in FairClaims cases are either submitted online or made through phone calls with the mediator or arbitrator, freeing up time in the process.
