A Highly Qualified, Experienced and Economical Mediator
From my experience mediating and my years on the bench I have found that pursuing a resolution of disputes outside of the courtroom removes uncertainty, reduces the costs of litigation and gives clients peace-of-mind and closure.
Voluntary mediation can be opportune when conducted: (a) pre-suit; (b) after a lawsuit has been filed; (c) prior to trial.
It has been especially rewarding to have worked with many attorneys over the past five years. I have enjoyed traveling throughout Central Illinois and the Metro Saint Louis area conducting scores of mediations.
If you or your clients prefer a defined mediation expense, (versus an hourly rate), you now have the option of requesting a quote for a fixed-cost mediation. My hourly rate has not changed, and is $200 per hour. Fixed-cost mediation pricing is sometimes the best option for tumultuous LM or Small Claims cases.
My training and certification as a mediator at the National Judicial College, as well as 24 years of experience as a trial judge, plus over 5 years privately mediating cases, continues to benefit the attorneys and parties who utilize my services.
Attorneys and their clients may be certain I will continue to provide quality, economical, and trustworthy mediation services.
