In many civil litigation cases, the relationship between the parties is at least as important as the issues of liability and damages. A skilled mediator takes into account both the substantive issues and the underlying needs and interests of the parties, helping come to a more durable agreement than can be secured after trial. Mediation usually takes one day, ending in a stipulated agreement that is ultimately entered as a court order and enforceable by the court. Attorneys are usually present although they sometimes agree to be available by phone during the process, saving their clients a substantial amount in attorney fees.
Fees for civil case mediation are $180/hour for both pre-mediation preparation and the actual mediation session , usually divided equally between the parties. Rates for multi-party disputes may vary depending on the number of parties and complexity of the case.
