what is mediation?
Mediation is a form of settlement negotiation conducted and assisted by an impartial person trained in the art of settling disputes. Unlike arbitration and other kinds of alternative dispute resolution, mediation is non-adjudicatory. The mediator makes no findings of fact or law.
rules & Fees
Most mediations require only one day and, typically, cost no more than a single deposition. Some mediators charge an hourly fee, and others charge a flat daily rate that varies according to the amount in controversy, nature of the dispute and the number of parties.
Steven Howard Holds Several Accreditations
For over 35 years I have handled and tried cases involving wrongful death, brain injury, trucking, motor vehicles, premises, commercial disputes, employment, construction defect, toxic tort, products liability, fire loss, non-subscriber and many others. I prepare for each mediation by analyzing and not just reviewing the parties submitted materials.
