All rates are 2 hr. minimum, and the fee is split between the parties unless otherwise agreed upon. Rates vary based on expertise required. Potential variables include complexity of mediation briefs, amount of supporting documents, location/travel involved, number and availability of parties and decision makers, level of correspondence, and need for translators. Rates will be discussed and agreed upon within the mediation agreement prior to mediation.
I was fortunate enough to have amazing mentors from some of the top mediators there are. They helped me get started and taught me the mediation ropes. Due to its confidential nature, it's difficult to learn the real life techniques that aren't from a book. These opportunities for experience are very hard to find as a mediator. If you are a mediator and would like to observe for Continuing Education, please let me know. Most times, parties are agreeable and I am always willing to help this fantastic profession grow. Or if you have questions, I am looking forward to hearing from you!
