Mediator Fees

Mediator Fee Rate

NOTE: Cynthia tries to keep her rates as reasonable as possible and has made no increase in over three years. She had scheduled an increase for 2020 but put it on hold in light of the coronavirus crisis.

Cynthia’s full day mediation rate is as follows:

  • $8,000 for all individual cases 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
  • $9,000 for all class and collective actions.

Cynthia’s flat mediator fee includes 1) the Pre-Mediation Conference Call with counsel 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.


Cynthia does not charge any fee or expense reimbursement for travel within Northern 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.
