Fees for Services as Mediator
is my policy as mediator to provide mediation services at
an affordable cost for all parties. If the below set fees
are unaffordable for any reason, please contact me and I will
adjust the fee and/or make other satisfactory arrangements.
experience, it is generally found that a full day mediation
should be scheduled for all parties so that the process can
have the necessary time to be effective. Furthermore, we have
found that when each party shares equally in the costs of
mediation, the process works best. Generally, we will begin
at 9:30 a.m., with a working lunch and continue until completed.
While most sessions conclude by 5:00 p.m., a session may extend
into the evening if necessary. Morning mediations scheduled for a half-day
will begin at 9:30 a.m. and an afternoon half-day session
will begin at 1:30 p.m.
mediation fee includes the following services:
scheduling and administration of the session(s).
pre-session conferences with attorneys as necessary.
Preparation for and conducting the mediation session(s).
conferences as needed.
and refreshments for all participants for a full day mediation.
