Mediation Process

Pre-Mediation Conference Call

Once the mediation is scheduled, Mr. Turner will contact counsel to discuss a variety of topics pertaining to the dispute in order to make the day of the mediation as efficient as possible. Mr. Turner is sensitive to the participants’ time and believes that a brief pre-mediation teleconference enhances the efficiency of the mediation.

Submission of Briefs

Mr. Turner understands that each case is unique and leaves it to counsel to determine how to most effectively present their case. A mediation brief that includes a detailed summary of relevant facts as well as evidentiary support for the most important facts, however, is most effective.


Mr. Turner can conduct mediations in person at Judicate West’s offices throughout California or at the office of either party. In addition, Mr. Turner is happy to conduct the mediation via Zoom if the parties prefer virtual mediation.

Mediation Fees

Mr. Turner offers rates for full and half-day mediations. Please contact for information regarding Mr. Turner’s rates.

Payment and Cancellations

Mediation fees are due upon scheduling a mediation and are refundable if the mediation is canceled at least 14 days in advance of the scheduled date.
