Mediation Fees

Mr. Pearl charges a flat rate of $9,000 for individual cases and $12,000 for multi-plaintiff, PAGA, class, and collective actions. This includes all preparation, a full day of mediation, and reasonable follow-up. 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 defendants, and particularly complex issues.

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

Counsel, not the represented parties, contract for the mediator’s services and are responsible for paying all mediation fees. All counsel are responsible, jointly and severally, for the mediator’s fees.

Mediations take place at a location provided by counsel. If counsel do not have an appropriate space for mediation, the parties are responsible for the cost of procuring such space.

Mediation fees are due in full upon booking. We cannot hold dates until fees are paid. Please make your check payable to “Steven G. Pearl” and mail it to:

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

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.
