Donna Lugar is a full-time Certified Mediator and Qualified Arbitrator who provides quality service at a reasonable price.
She has arbitrated and mediated nearly three thousand cases to conclusion and has been mediating and arbitrating cases for over 20 years and on a full-time basis since 2010. 

What We Do


Mediation is a process whereby a neutral and impartial third person acts to encourage and facilitate the resolution of a dispute without prescribing what it should be. It is an informal and non-adversarial process intended to help disputing parties reach a mutually acceptable agreement. 


Arbitrations are popular in certain venues in both binding and non-binding formats.
We will carefully review pre-arbitration submissions, receive and listen to evidence and arguments presented at arbitration and will then render a fair and impartial written decision.


Mediations or hybrid proceedings (i.e., mediation/ arbitration) must be scheduled Monday through Thursday only in any agreeable 3-hour time slot. Start times are 8am, 11am, or 2pm.

Arbitrations must be scheduled on Fridays only. Arbitration time periods are one hour unless Ms. Lugar approves a longer time period. Start times are 8am, 9am, 10am, 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm or 3pm.   

Rates & Fees

> $275/hour per party for two party cases
> $225/hour per party for three party cases
> $200/hour per party for 4 party or more cases

The number of parties is typically determined by the number of attorneys but may also be determined by the number of claims in dispute.
