Mediations are set for either afternoons [half day up to four hours] or full days including Saturdays if required [8 hours] at a location agreeable to the parties. Fees are payable in advance and divided as the parties agree or as a court may order. Additional time is computed at $450 per hour, plus expenses incurred. Travel time is $100 per hour. If a mediation is cancelled less than 48 hours beforehand, a $175 administrative fee is charged and the deposit balance refunded. Prior to the mediation a free joint telephone conference is provided, and if a mediation is not successful but there are new circumstances that might change that, parties may have two additional free telephone conferences to see if resolution can occur, because our goal is to help you get your issues resolved.
