Civil Roster Mediation Details
$450 - $500 / hour

My fee may be $500 for complex or multi-party mediations.

My Agreement to Mediate provides that if a mediation which has been scheduled to proceed is cancelled by either party, Clark Wilson LLP charges an administration fee of $100 plus all disbursements incurred to the date of the cancellation. My retainer letter provides that if I have also reviewed the mediation briefs or any documents provided for my review prior to the cancellation, my hourly fee will be charged for those services. If the decision to cancel is mutual, the fees and disbursements will be divided equally. If the cancellation is unilateral, the party cancelling the mediation will be billed those fees and disbursements.


I practiced civil litigation at Russell & DuMoulin (now Faskens) from 1978 to 1988. I was appointed to the County Court of Vancouver in 1988 and the Supreme Court of B.C. in 1990. I heard civil, criminal and family cases until my retirement from the Bench in 2012. I joined Clark Wilson LLP in 2013 as associate counsel and my practice is restricted to mediations and arbitrations. I took mediation training courses from the Justice Institute of B.C. and CLE.

I have mediated cases in the following areas:
  • wills and estates, including wills variation;
  • commercial cases;
  • personal injuries cases;
  • family business litigation;
  • product liability; and
  • disability benefits.

After being a judge for 24 years, I am really enjoying the opportunity to assist parties in resolving their disputes economically and expeditiously.
