Andrew Lipscomb earned his mediation certificate from the University of Denver’s Sturm College of Law in 2019. He has experience mediating a wide range of money, home repair and construction, and landlord/tenant disputes in the Denver small claims court and with the Denver Better Business Bureau.
In mediation, parties craft their own, unique solution to their dispute. Both sides are given the time and space to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of a case in a matter-of-fact way. The mediation process removes much of the posturing and gamesmanship found throughout the court process, and instead focuses on making realistic assessments and valuations of claims. By mediating their claims, parties are able to forego the time, stress, expense, and risk associated with the court process along with the uncertainty of how a third-party will decide the case for them.
As a mediator, Andrew employs a hybrid style that uses both hands-off and structured approaches. This approach empowers parties to make decisions together as to the flow and outcome of the mediation. Caucuses–or private meetings between one party and the mediator during mediation–are available, and in some cases encouraged. If an agreement is reached, both parties will be responsible for determining the contents of the agreement.
I charge an $90.00/hour, split between the parties or as otherwise agreed by the parties. A two-hour minimum is required for all mediations.
Sliding-scale services may be available upon request.
For inquiries on fees, please contact Andrew by phone or email with a brief description of the case and the parties. If a case has been filed with the court, then please include the complaint along with any answer(s).
