In the absence of an agreement by the parties, a mediator is selected by the Mediation/Arbitration Division from the Wheel on a rotating basis. Mediators must agree to accept cases at the rate of one hundred twenty-five dollars ($125.00) per hour; however, there is no guarantee of payment on any of the cases involving a court appointment.

Arbitration Wheel – Pursuant to §44.103, Fla. Stat. and Fla. R. Civ. P. 1.700(a) & 1.800, the Circuit has established two (2) procedures to facilitate the use of non-binding arbitration in all or any part of a contested civil action filed in either circuit or county court. Both procedures allow the parties to agree upon the selection of their own arbitrator[s]; however, in the absence of an agreement by the parties, either a single arbitrator is selected by the court from the Wheel consisting of certified arbitrators or the arbitrator will be randomly selected from the Wheel by the Mediation/Arbitration Division as the court's designee. Arbitrators must comply with the qualification and training requirements set forth in Fla. R. Arb. 11.010 and 11.020, unless otherwise agreed by the parties. Administrative Order No. 99-54 sets arbitrator compensation at the maximum statutory rate of two hundred dollars ($200.00) per day, unless agreed otherwise by the parties and approved by the court; however, there is no guarantee of payment on any of the cases involving a court appointment. Attorneys who are interested in this Wheel should contact Ms. Sabrina Haspil at the Dade County Courthouse, 73 West Flagler Street, Room #1801, Miami, Florida 33130 or at (305) 349-7344.
