Professional Background: Mr. Ramírez is a skilled and dedicated

Style of Mediation: Mr. Ramírez’ approach is structured to be
comfortable; he uses primarily the facilitative model of
mediation. He follows a process that assists the parties in
reaching a mutually agreeable resolution. The
mediator asks questions; validates parties' points of view;
searches for
interests underneath the positions taken by parties and assists
the parties
in reaching resolution by finding and analyzing their own
options.

Fees: Mediations are billed by the case. When additional time is
required
for study or hearing time it is billed by the hour. The cost and
length of the mediation is directly dependent on the number
and complexity of issues presented as well as the willingness of
each party to be forthcoming and participatory.
