Is JDS geared to the needs of the Jewish community alone?

JDS was established from within the Jewish community to cater to its needs. Several of its services, however, are well suitable for the wider community as well.

How can JDS save me money?

There are many situations in which there are several different approaches to solving a dispute; the prices of which can differ dramatically. We can help you explore your options so as to avoid unnecessary expense.

Is JDS endorsed or recognised by any Halachic or legal authority?

JDS was founded with the encouragement of Rabbis, lawyers and lay professionals across the U.K. It is, however, not under the auspices of any specific Beth Din.

Can JDS bring a Dispute to a legally binding conclusion?

Yes, though this does depend on the nature of the dispute and what has been agreed between the parties.

I don’t know whether to have my disputed arbitrated or mediated - can JDS help?

Yes, JDS can advise you as to the pros and cons of each process, and the differences between them. However, if we have given you personalised advice on a specific matter, we may then be unable to act as neutrals to mediate or arbitrate ourselves.
