Mediation Fees

Mr. Pearl charges $10,000 for individual cases and $15,000 for multi-plaintiff, PAGA, class, and collective actions. This includes up to two hours of preparation and up to eight hours of mediation time. Fees for additional time may be charged a $1,200 per hour. Fees for “unused” time will not be refunded.

Mr. Pearl charges additional fees for travel outside of Los Angeles, Orange, and Ventura counties. Mr. Pearl reserves the right to charge additional fees for cases involving multiple separately represented parties and particularly complex issues.

Mr. Pearl does not charge any fee for case administration.

Counsel, not their clients, contract for the mediator’s services and are responsible for paying all fees.

Due to Covid-19, all mediations take place via Zoom videoconference.

Mediation fees are due in full upon booking. We reserve the right to take matters off calendar if fees are not paid.

Payment may be made by check or ACH. Please contact us for instructions regarding payment by ACH. Please make your check payable to “Steven G. Pearl,” include the case name on the check, and mail it to:

  • Steven G. Pearl
  • 18960 Ventura Blvd., #453
  • Tarzana, CA 91356

If fees are not paid seven days prior to mediation, fees must be paid by ACH transfer.

Please do not reserve a mediation date unless you are sure that you will go forward. If unforeseen circumstances arise, Mr. Pearl will refund mediation fees in full when the parties cancel in writing 30 days or more in advance of the scheduled date. If the parties cancel less than 30 days before the scheduled date, Mr. Pearl will refund fees only if he can fill the date with another matter.
