Mediation

Stuart mediates a variety of civil disputes. He has an evaluative style as a mediator and Stuart helps the parties evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of their case, identifies interests and crafts novel solutions to problems. He encourages the parties to make a business decision and evaluate resolution by weighing the settlement options available at the end of the day versus the best alternatives available to the parties if they decide not to resolve the case. He believes these principles can be applied to any type of case.

Mediation Fee Schedule 2024

Standard mediations are set for half or full day sessions

Half Day Rates consist of four (4) hours inclusive of review and preparation time, additional time is billed at $550 per hour

Full Day Rates consist of eight (8) hours inclusive of review and preparation time, additional time is billed at $550 per hour

Payment for Mediator Services and Retainer Agreement

The fees for services, other than mediation session time, include but are not limited to, the review of submitted materials, post-session continued mediation work, which is often conducted telephonically or electronically, and intersession review of additional materials as needed.

Payment of all fees should be made no later than five (5) business days before the commencement of the session.

The mediator reserves the right to cancel the mediation if the requisite mediation fees are not timely paid.

All parties represented by the same attorney or firm are considered a single “party”

Cancellation or Rescheduling Policy

A cancellation or rescheduling fee is charged only if mediation is cancelled or rescheduled within seven (7) business days prior to the scheduled mediation. A cancellation fee equal to one party’s mediation fee will be charged to the party or parties cancelling. In the case of more than one party cancelling, the parties cancelling will pay the cancellation fee on a pro-rata basis.

At the mediator’s discretion, and in appropriate circumstances, such as when we are able to schedule another mediation during the allotted time, or cancellation is caused by matters beyond the control of parties, such as
weather, sickness or settlement, we may waive the cancellation fee.
