Description of Practice

This Mediator is Certified
Nate Sterling offers mediation services primarily in the Sacramento area, and also throughout Northern California. Call me right now at 916-801-4386 for a FREE consultation.

Unfortunately the legal process is too expensive, complicated, time-consuming, byzantine, and too often does not produce satisfactory results, even for the "winning" parties after trial. Mediation is a much more direct and cost-effective way to resolve disputes and results in higher satisfaction rates for the participants.

Nate Sterling has a master's degree (M.A.) in Conflict Resolution from CSU Dominguez Hills, a Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree from UOP McGeorge School of Law, and a baccalaureate (B.A.) degree in Psychology from CSU Sacramento. Nate Sterling successfully completed hundreds of hours of trainings in mediations and dispute resolutions. Nate has been an attorney and mediator in Sacramento since 2001.

Nate has a breadth of experience since 2001 in many areas of the law including: contracts, personal injuries, real estate, business litigation, wills and trusts, employment law, tort law, and alternative dispute resolution.

Nate has developed conflict resolution models and has successfully mediated small and large disputes, from individual to business disputes. Nate also has experience with and provides pre-litigation evaluations and settlement negotiations for clients.

Approach

My approach to mediation is primarily facilitative, and also can be evaluative as appropriate. My approach tends to be eclectic with a focus on what is practical and what works best with the particular mediation participants under the unique circumstances of each mediation.

Fees

Nate Sterling charges $200 per hour with a three hour minimum. The usual two party case results in each participant paying $100 per hour (as fees are customarily split equally between participants). Deposits adequate to cover anticipated fees and expenses are required in advance. Deposit for three hours is $600 and is generally split equally between the participants. I will travel to conduct mediations in the local area, though mediations are generally held at my office in Sacramento (suburb of Fair Oaks). Cases in San Francisco Bay Area are mediated or arbitrated and require an 8 hour minimum mediation and 8 hour deposit ($1,600) paid in advance, which covers 6 hours of mediation. Most payment forms accepted: credit cards, checks, cash, cashier's checks, paypal, direct bank transfers (Zelle), and mobile phone payments through vendors such as Venmo.

Other Information

Moderate proficiency in Spanish if needed.
