Domestic, Probate & County Court ADR

** Notice** In the aftermath of the Coronavirus outbreak, I am still conducting mediations via Zoom videoconference or telephone. However, if all parties and counsel are fully vaccinated and all parties agree, I am also offering the option of in-person mediations.  My scheduler will discuss these options with you when you schedule your mediation.

I am authorized by the Colorado Office of Dispute Resolution (ODR) to provide mediation to people who have been ordered to participate in alternative dispute resolution before their case is heard by the judge in court.  When parties reach out to me with an ODR mediation request, my office contacts the parties and schedules a date for the mediation session.  ODR sets the rates that are charged, and each party pays the same amount. 

Sessions last a minimum of two hours, but may be scheduled for longer.  They typically take place in the courthouse of the county where the case is pending, although other locations are possible, and if a party is living far away, telephone mediations are possible.

ODR Mediations cost $150 per party for the first two hours for domestic and probate cases, and $100 per party for County Court cases.

Parties who have been approved as indigent through the courts or through ODR receive a reduced rate of $30 for domestic and cases and $20 for County Court cases.  

My PC/DM, med-arb, and arbitration rate for domestic and probate cases, and my arbitration rate for County Court cases, is $250 per hour.
