Friendly but persuasive when necessary. I believe in listening to the parties and counsel and asking many questions of both sides to get a good understanding of the matter.
I would like briefs emailed to me at least 3 days before the mediation.
$400/hour. Half day rate: $1600. Full day rate: $3,000. I am willing to negotiate rates with litigants/attorneys, and would consider providing mediations at reduced rates.
