Virtual (ZOOM) only, at present. If in-person mediation is best for your clients, please contact me for further discussion. Mediating via Zoom allows attorneys and their clients to participate from their choice of location, and to not be in the same room as the other party, unless agreed to by both parties.


Scheduling: See the calendar for availability. Half-day sessions are from 8:30 a.m. through 12:30 p.m. or 1 p.m. through 5 p.m.; Full day sessions are from 8:30 a.m. through 5 p.m. All times are Monday through Friday. Please include these times in your Mediation Notice.


Rate: $200 per hour, with a two-hour minimum – additional $50 per hour for mediations continuing after 7 p.m. Fee to be split equally unless otherwise court ordered or agreed to. Mediation fee payment is due at the conclusion of the mediation session. Payment due via Visa or MasterCard, through LawPay.

I look forward to assisting the parties in their mediation!
