The job of the mediator is to get the case settled and to stick with it (even after the day) until it is done or determined impossible. I am an evaluative mediator. Mediation should focus on the hard issues in the case that will be outcome-determinative. I usually request submissions be made a week ahead of time. I don’t believe people should go to mediation until they feel they have enough information to make an ultimate decision. I don’t prefer opening statements but am flexible enough to make accommodation for each case. After I read submissions I frequently will call the parties to get information or to request that they address issues in the mediation because I think they will be important. I feel the mediator is responsible for the process, but I am open to suggestions on procedure.
Usually an hourly fee determined by the number of parties, I do charge travel time and expenses. 2 - $325; 3 to 4 - $365; 5 to 9 - $425; 10 or more - $475
