Mediator Fees


Mediator Fee Rate

After nearly four years Cynthia’s rates are changing effective for mediations conducted beginning May 1, 2021.

Beginning on May 1, Cynthia’s full day rates will be as follows:

  • $12,000 − Class and collective actions for one full day of mediation; and
  • $10,000 − Individual actions for one full day of mediation.

Before May 1, Cynthia’s full day rates will be as follows:

  • $9,000 − Class and collective actions for one full day of mediation; and
  • $8,000 − Individual actions for one full day of mediation.

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.

Travel

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.
