Kirsten Lindquist Rowe
Attorney at Law - Certified Civil Mediator

Location

It is up to the parties to determine a mutually agreeable location for mediation; most often, mediation occurs at counsel's office.  If the mediation cannot take place at one of the parties' offices, a neutral site can be obtained.  Please note that if the mediation must occur at a neutral site, the actual costs of the site rental will be billed to the parties.  Site rental generally ranges from $40 to $60 per hour, depending on the location.

Rates

$250 per hour, with a 2 hour minimum.  The hourly fee is to be shared equally by the parties.  Depending on the circumstances of the case, a higher hourly rate may apply for mediations with 3 or more parties.  Mortgage mediations and foreclosure mediations are available for a flat rate of $400.  Please contact Kirsten for additional details.

Travel Time

There is no charge for travel time for mediations taking place within the 8th Judicial Circuit (Alachua, Baker, Clay, Gilchrist, Levy and Union counties), or in Marion County.  For mediations outside these geographic areas, travel time will be billed at $150 per hour, in addition to actual costs of travel, such as airfare or lodging.

Mediation Statements

Mediation statements are highly encouraged.  A concise, well-prepared mediation statement helps make the mediation run more effectively and smoothly.  Please email mediation statements to my office no later than 10 days prior to the mediation.

Payment

Counsel for the parties will receive an invoice for services rendered within three (3) business days of the conclusion of the mediation session.  Payment is due within 10 days of the receipt of the invoice.  Advance retainers may be required for unrepresented parties.

Cancellation Policy

A cancellation fee of two hours time will be charged for mediations cancelled less than ten (10) calendar days before the scheduled mediation.
