David Tate, Esq. – mediator and dispute resolution services

Dear Connections and Others: 

I am making this post to discuss my services as a mediator. I provide reasonably priced mediator and dispute resolution services, in addition to my litigation practice. Toward the end of 2022 I started to expand my mediator practice to about 20% of my practice. I provide services in California only.

My services as mediator have primarily been in the following litigation: trust, estate, elder abuse, conservatorship, POA, accounting, contentious administration, real property, breach of contract, commercial, and internal business, co-owner, board/director/committee, shareholder, founder, investor, and workplace cases and disputes. I also have experience in other areas. 

Please feel free to contact me informally to discuss mediation and dispute resolution opportunities generally or a specific case or situation where a mediator is required or could simply be helpful. I like helping people get to settlement, answers, resolution and moving forward.    

My current rates are the following (although I have flexibility in some cases): 

Remote/zoom mediations: current standard mediator rate: $300 per hour plus a $200 setup fee, to be apportioned between the parties. 

In person mediations: current standard mediator rate: $300 per hour plus a $200 setup fee, to be apportioned between the parties – plus a per party room cost of approximately $60 per hour (or less if possible).   

You will find some of my mediator discussions on my blogs in addition to other posts (see blog addresses below).

Thank you. Again, please also feel free to contact me informally. Email: dave@tateattorney.com

Thank you for reading. Please do pass this blog and blog post and information to other people who would be interested as it is only through collaboration and sharing that great things and success are more quickly achieved.

Remember, every case and situation is different. It is important to obtain and evaluate all of the evidence that is available, and to apply that evidence to the applicable standards and laws. You do need to consult with an attorney and other professionals about your particular situation. This post is not a solicitation for legal or other services inside of or outside of California, and, of course, this post only is a summary of information that changes from time to time, and does not apply to any particular situation or to your specific situation. So . . . you cannot rely on this post for your situation or as legal or other professional advice or representation, or as or for my opinions and views on the subject matter.

Also note – sometimes I include links to or comments about materials from other organizations or people – if I do so, it is because I believe that the materials are worthwhile reading or viewing; however, that doesn’t mean that I don’t or might not have a different view about some or even all of the subject matter or materials, or that I necessarily agree with, or agree with everything about or relating to, that organization or person, or those materials or the subject matter.
