What does mediation cost?
This really depends on how long and what type of mediator you need. We've found that a mediation takes a minimum of four hours - that's what the mediator needs to do a good job. Some mediations will last longer than that, but the shortest time we will book a mediation is four hours.
Mediators bill by the hour. Mediation hourly rates range from $200-$450 and increase per the mediators expertise and location. Here is the great news: unlike other mediation providers, we do not charge an administration fee. You just pay the mediators hourly rate for the hours scheduled.

What Does Having The Wrong Mediator Cost You?
Getting the wrong mediator wastes everyone's time, money, and more importantly, it reduces your chances of success.
A mediation is two parties working together under the guidance of a mediator to try and come to resolution on a dispute. If you do not have the right mediator, who can provide that guidance and work with you and the other party towards a resolution, you are just wasting time and money.
All too often people know they need help with their dispute. Typically, mediations happen with each party being represented by an attorney but that can be very expensive. It does not have to be that way.
There is no requirement that you be represented by an attorney. Now, in more complicated matters it might be a good idea to be, however there are situations where a good mediator can work directly with parties to come to a resolution.
We can't guarantee a resolution, but we can guarantee that we will work hard to find you the best mediator at the best rate when and where you need them. We are able to provide mediators for in-person or online mediations making the mediation as convenient as you need it to be.
Our process is simple, but remember, you need to make sure that the other side wants to mediate. We can not force anyone to mediate so the first step for you is to make sure the other party wants to go to mediation.
Once you all have agreed on mediation, begin by filling out a quick and easy form outlining the dispute or simply give us a call.
Our staff then contacts you (via email or phone) to begin the process.
We then go to our network of over 1,000 dispute professionals to find the right one for you. The available mediators are compiled in a list and sent to you for review and selection.
Once the mediator is selected and the fees are paid, the mediator will contact the parties and confirm the date and time for the mediation, the method of the mediation (remotely or in-person), and request any additional information necessary for the mediation.
The mediation happens.
If the parties are able to resolve all or part of their dispute, the mediator will provide a document that summarizes the agreement between the parties.
Working together, we make this process simple for all involved.
