Our firm offers mediation services for a very inexpensive rate of $150 per hour. When there are two (2) parties which would be $75 each. Mr. Mann and Mr Kieper both offer civil and family law mediation which covers nearly all types of cases you have whether custody battles, neighbor disputes or issues with a repair person or customer.
Ms. Joachim and Ms. Gehring are family law mediators and can handle the full range of family law issues from child support, tax exemptions for children of non married couples, paternity, custody, grandparent and other third party custody or visitation, adoption matters etc.
The mediation generally takes place at our office. We do office a unique option of mediation through Skype or another service through Zoom.us where the parties can be anywhere in the world where they have internet or smart phone service. We have computer programs that can quickly assist the parties in comparing different offers and outcomes on Large Screen televisions in our conference rooms or online through Zoom.us.
If you do not have an attorney, we can still handle your mediations and we can prepare the basic documents but cannot give you advice, legal or otherwise. Even if you have an attorney and want to save money, we can have online access to your attorney when you need to talk to her or him. The attorney can then work on other matters and not bill you though the dead time so typical of mediations.
We also have wireless internet available for the participants that is separate from our system that you can use. Many participants are busy people and this allows them to work during the slow times in the mediation.
Next time you need mediation for any purpose, you should ask your lawyer to check us out or if you are pro se, without an attorney, you can contact us and if the other party agrees, then we can schedule the mediation and try together to resolve your problems. We typically are successful 90-95% of the time.
