I recently published an article detailing some of the impending budget cuts for the Kentucky courts entitled “Mediaiton is the Future“. As the cost of litigating conflicts rise ever higher to society and litigants, mediation offers substantial cost savings in resolving those very same conflicts.
Mediation makes the resolution of disputes among individuals, within families, within businesses and organizations, between businesses, and with employees within financial reach. I am doing my part in the cost savings offered by mediating conflicts. It is important to me that even people with tight finances are able to access mediation.
Therefore, I offer a sliding fee schedule based on income to make this alternative dispute resolution available. The sliding fee schedule has been available to individuals who are not represented by attorneys. Now, additionally, I am offering reduced fees even when parties have attorneys so long as the attorneys each agree to a commensurate fee reduction to their own rates for the mediation session.
