Mediator Fees

Mediator Fee Rate

Cynthia’s mediation rates are full day rates that include:

1) the Pre-Session 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.

For a single plaintiff matter the flat fee is $12,000.

For a class/representative matter the flat fee is $15,000.

For a multiple plaintiff matter without a class/representative component, or a matter involving multiple class actions, the fee will be determined after we learn more about the matter.

For further rate information, please contact Robert, Cynthia’s Practice Manager, at or 510 452 5298.

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.

Cancellation or Postponement Fees

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