At his discretion, Mr. Saler will charge for mediation services he provides following the session but only after receiving the parties’ approval.

Legal counsel or a party’s insurance carrier are retaining Mr. Saler and are therefore, responsible for paying his fee for the mediation services he provides. Mr. Saler’s Corporate Taxpayer Identification Number is 26-1754546. Please make your check payable to Alan Saler Mediation Services.

Continuance and
Cancellation Policy

Mr. Saler recognizes the critical importance of mediating a case only when the parties and their counsel are truly ready to proceed. If it becomes necessary to change the session date, Mr. Saler has a liberal continuance policy. As long as the mediation session is held on the rescheduled date you will not be charged for the continuance.

Should you decide to cancel your session because your matter has settled or other unforeseen circumstances have arisen, Mr. Saler will refund your deposit if he receives notice seven (7) days before the scheduled date. If you cancel the session less than seven (7) days before the scheduled date, your deposit is refundable if Mr. Saler is able to fill the cancelled time slot with another matter.
