Mediation is a process in which a neutral third party (mediator) helps the parties communicate with one another to reach an agreement that is acceptable to everyone. Mediation is a forward-looking process that encourages the participants to focus on their current and future needs rather than focusing on fault and blame for past actions. Mediation differs from a court proceeding in that the parties maintain control of their dispute. The decision-making power in mediation lies with the parties, not with the mediator or the court. Pre-trial resolution of a matter typically saves the parties massive amounts of time, energy, and expense.

All parties represented by the same attorney are considered one party for the purposes of the mediation fee. Otherwise, each party is charged a separate fee. Amicus attorneys and ad litems are not considered a party for purposes of the mediation fees.
Late cancellation of mediations causes immense problems for all concerned. To minimize this problem, the following late cancellation policy applies to all scheduled mediations. If mediation is canceled five (5) or fewer business days prior to the scheduled mediation date, a cancellation fee of $100 may be charged to the canceling party.
Occasionally, it is necessary to incur certain expenses for large, multi-party complex cases. Examples include larger hearing rooms and/or additional caucus rooms. Such expenses will be identified and disclosed in advance and agreed to by the parties prior to invoicing by the mediator.
