The Mediation Process
MEDIATION FEE SCHEDULE
Our mediation fee is simple and charged at a fixed rate of $300 per hour for two parties, without regard to the nature, amount in controversy, or complexity of the case. This rate is divided by each party. In the event that there are more than two parties, the third and fourth party pays an additional $150 per hour to the base rate of $300.
No mediation schedule is confirmed until each party has paid their share of the fee.
Fees are $450 per party for a minimum of three hours. See cancellation policy.
When a full day of mediation is expected, the rate will be $1,200 per party, based on eight (8) hours. See cancellation policy.
If the mediation extends past eight (8) hours for a full-day or three (3) hours for a partial-day, then each party will be charged the hourly fee of $150 as part of the $300 per hour rate. Please be prepared to provide a check at the mediation for overtime fees or bring a credit card to use our PayPal option.
Special Client Needs
If this fee schedule needs modification for your case, I would be willing to negotiate a more convenient rate. The venues that we use for mediation are all handicap and wheelchair accessible.
A cancellation fee of $500, or $250 each party, will be charged to the canceling parties for a mediation canceled fourteen (14) days prior to the scheduled mediation date. Otherwise, mediation fees, once paid and scheduled, are non-refundable. If the mediation is rescheduled and conducted, we will apply any funds in excess of the $500 cancellation fee toward the rescheduled mediation. We will make every prudent effort to work with you, your client, and your schedule.
