Cody believes that mediation is the best approach to managing conflict in most cases. This is because mediation, when handled by a highly trained professional, often saves parties time and money, and it typically leads to more creative and durable solutions than many parties could reach on their own or by fighting in courts. As a facilitative mediator, Cody takes pride in providing exceptional service to his clients by helping them each step of the way as they work through difficult matters in a carefully structured dialogue.


We charge a mediation services fee of $249 per hour.
