Mediation Fees


My usual hourly rate is $475.00 but I strongly recommend a flat fee agreement. There's important research reported in 2008 that demonstrates that the parties' and counsel's preparation for negotiation and the way they approach the mediation process is even more influential on outcome than anything the mediator does during the session. With a flat fee agreement I include face to face meetings with the parties and their attorneys before the mediation session ever takes place to help assure that good preparation for negotiated resolution is done. This also helps to build rapport with the parties before they attend.

A full day mediation is $5,500.00. This includes all preparation including face to face meetings with all attorneys and parties before the day of the session. Send me an email and I will send you a draft of my fee agreement for flat fee or hourly fee mediation.
