What is "mediation"?

Mediation is a collaborative and confidential private process where a neutral third person called a mediator helps the parties discuss and try to resolve the dispute. For more information:

How does mediation work?

The parties to the dispute meet in a safe and collaborative setting with the mediator guiding them towards a mutually agreeable resolution, taking into account expected costs and benefits of resolution and continued litigation. For more information:

Describe the mediation process.

After introductions, I have each party and attorney execute a confidentiality agreement to confirm that the entire process shall remain confidential. Then, I deliver my opening remarks and explain the ground rules for the mediation. Once the parties are comfortable, and I have answered any questions they may have, I invite the parties to share their perspectives, positions, and proposals, and manage the exchange in the manner most beneficial to the parties. Most often, the parties will remain in the same room for the majority of the mediation, but each mediation is unique, and my methodologies will be adapted to the specific needs of each case. I encourage but do not require "joint meetings." Each party will have access to a conference room for breakout sessions and private conferrals.

How is mediation different from arbitration?

Mediation is a private, confidential, and collaborative process whereby the parties reach a voluntary resolution with the assistance of a trained mediator. Arbitration is another form of trial whereby one side or the other prevails.

How much do you charge?

$380/hour. (The parties split this equally unless otherwise agreed.)

Do I need a lawyer?

Yes. I am a neutral and cannot and will not offer legal advice to any party as part of the mediation.

Do I have to attend in person?

Yes, I will not mediate a case without the decision-making/settlement authority person attending in-person.

What are the advantages or benefits of mediation?

Mediation puts the parties in charge of their own destiny rather than a judge, jury or arbitrator. Mediation is a negotiated resolution that allows parties to escape the pitfalls and expense of litigation. Compliance with mediated settlements is significantly higher than compliance with judgments rendered after litigation and appeals. In other words, people are far more likely to honor a voluntary agreement than pay on a judgment. This certainty is a major benefit of mediation.

What are the disadvantages or risks of mediation?

The only real risk is not taking control of your own destiny in the safe, secure and confidential confines of a professional mediation. Some parties do not use mediation for the purpose of reaching an agreement but as either a way to garner information on the cheap for offensive purposes, or as a way to try to bully the other side into submission outside of the legal proceedings. As mediator, I am vigilant against bad faith participants.

How should I prepare for mediation?

Work closely with your attorney to assess your case, the impediments to reaching a resolution, and the potential cost and benefits of continued litigation versus mediated resolution. I will reach out to your attorney before the mediation to help me prepare for my role as a neutral facilitator.

My lawsuit isn't in Nevada, can I still use your mediation services?

Yes, subject to the laws and regulations of your jurisdiction. Of particular value to parties outside of Nevada, I have extensive experience representing cannabis companies and personal injury attorneys in disputes regarding ownership, separation and dissolution. In these highly specialized cases, I bring significant value for such disputes in foreign jurisdictions, with the added advantage of no local ties, so that the parties are even more inclined to speak freely and think openly, thus increasing the likelihood of a successful mediation, and minimizing the impact on the business, its clients, and employees.
