I have a multimodal approach that is tailored to the needs of the situation. When there is an ongoing relationship I often utilize a collaborative approach. In personal injury I often find an evaluative approach more necessary, the same goes for employment matters in the private sector.


My current hourly fee is $ 400 per hour with a minimum of four hours, this is competitive in our market. This fee is for a two party mediation conducted in metropolitan Toronto and does not include preparation costs, reading time, travel time and location costs where the mediation is held in person.
