Approach

Rebecca's style falls within the "evaluative" definition of mediation. Because of her many years of litigation experience, she is inclined to reference possible viewpoints of the court, to discuss applicable statutes, law, and case law, and to bring up aspects of the case that the parties may have not considered.

Fees

Rebecca charges $180.00 per hour (1/2 to be paid by each of the parties). She also offers flat fee document preparation. See her website www.longokura.com for scheduling and more information about flat fee document preparation (which includes 2 hours of mediation at no additional cost).
