Family Roster Mediation Details
My downtown Vancouver office can accommodate shuttle mediation (mediation in different rooms). I am willing to travel elsewhere to accommodate the parties and counsel. I can also accommodate distance mediation.

I am experienced at mediating complex property division and support issues. I am also skilled at drafting settlement documentation including Minutes of Settlement, Separation Agreements and/or Consent Court Orders.

$425 - $425 / hour

I charge hourly and request a $5,000 advance retainer for a one day mediation done at my office. For mediations elsewhere in the lower mainland, I charge for travel time and request a $6,500 advance retainer for a one day mediation. For longer mediations or complex mediations, the retainer requested may be more. For travel outside of the lower mainland by flight or ferry, travel time and expenses will depend on the file but are discussed and agreed in advance. My office accepts payment by cheque, Visa or Mastercard.

I have no cancellation fee but any fees and disbursements already incurred will be payable on cancellation.


I have been a family law lawyer for over 20 years. I have been a mediator for almost as long. I believe that mediation is one of the best ways to resolve a family law file. In my experience, mediation, compared to other processes, tends to be quicker, more cost-effective, less stressful, more adaptive to the needs of participants and be overall a more satisfying process. I am passionate about helping people resolve their family law disputes and enabling them to move on with their lives.
