A typical full-day mediation begins at 9:30am, includes a working lunch and continues until completed. Mediations may be scheduled earlier or later at the request of the parties. While most sessions conclude by approximately 5:30pm, a session may extend into the evening as long as efforts seem to be productive.
Most cases need only a single mediation session. Some cases requi re more than one day of mediation and may be scheduled as multi-day mediations. Other cases are scheduled for a single half – or full-day mediation and turn out to require an additional mediation session. Subsequent mediation sessions are scheduled at the mutual request of the parties.
