Our "virtual" mediation system is cost efficient not only for our clients, but also for us. We are fortunate to have a steady client volume which has allowed our fees to remain modest in relation to the quality and success rate of the services we perform... and consider the following benefits:
We have many years of past experience dealing with a wide range of issues. During our free, initial consultation with a prospective client to evaluate the problem, we can normally project the time, effort and probability of reaching a successful resolution. Therefore, in most cases, we will simply quote a modest flat fee.
The mediation fee is refundable if no acceptable resolution is achieved. This policy is our way of ensuring discipline and excellence in our services, without cost surprises. Many fees are offset back as a credit to a defendant based on the prevention of costly further loss of time for both parties thru the court process.
The Mediation Institute of America process begins with our Q&A phone interview to evaluate if our services will be of any real benefit towards achieving a successful resolution. To ensure someone is truly committed with us to the mediation process we require a "good faith" retainer fee payment to start the process.
We have a variety of convenient payment method options available. Some unique situations may call for a different approach to our fee arrangement. In such cases, we are open to being flexible.
