Rates: $450/hr (Single Plaintiff Cases) $500/hr (Multiple Party Cases)

Payment: My policy and expectation is that counsel is responsible for prompt payment of the mediation fee.

Cancellation Policy: Effective January 2017, a cancellation fee of 3.0 hours ($1,350.00) for a scheduled half-day mediation and 4.0 hours ($1,800.00) for a scheduled full-day mediation will be charged for any mediation cancelled with less than 7 days’ notice. This fee will be split equally between the plaintiff(s) and the defendant(s). It is up to the parties to decide among themselves who is responsible for the cancellation if the fee is to be paid other than as allocated above. Additionally, morning half-day mediations will begin at 9:00 a.m. and conclude by no later than 1:00 p.m. If you are uncertain how long the mediation will last, it is highly advisable you reserve it for a full-day. I will start my afternoon half-day mediations at 1:30 p.m. Full-day mediations can be scheduled to begin at any time.
