Mediator Fees


Mediator Fee Rate Change

After nearly three years unchanged, Cynthia’s full day rate is going up effective July 1, 2017 due to dramatically increased overhead.

Please note the Pre-July 1 Rate applies to all mediations booked by July 1, even if the mediation date is after July 1.

Pre-July 1 full day mediation rate is as follows:

  • $6,000 for all individual no matter how many parties in a single lawsuit up to the point at which the number of parties would inhibit effective mediation in a single day; and
  • $7,000 for all class and collective actions.

Post-July 1 full day mediation rate is as follows:

  • $8,000 for all individual cases on the terms as above; and
  • $9,000 for all class and collective actions on the terms as above.

Cynthia’s flat mediator fee includes 1) the Pre-Mediation Conference Call with counsel about two to three weeks before the mediation; 2) all of her preparation time; and 3) any reasonable amount of follow up, should that be needed.

Cynthia does not mediate on a half-day or hourly basis.

Fee Due Date

Mediator fees are due two weeks from the date our invoices are e-mailed.

Travel

Cynthia does not charge any fee or expense reimbursement for travel within California or to certain out-of-state cities.

Cancellation or Postponement Fees

Cynthia does not charge any fee should a scheduled mediation be cancelled or need rescheduling.  However, Cynthia encourages parties to let her know as soon as possible if a schedule adjustment is likely to be requested.
