FEES: Our fees are $450 per hour, including preparation time. Travel time is $150 per hour. A calendaring fee reserving a date for your mediation is $150. Out of pocket expenses, such as Zoom Operator charges, are billed at actual cost.
ADVANCE DEPOSIT REQUIRED: Deposits are payable 15 days in advance and divided as the parties agree or as a court may order.
CANCELLATIONS: We do not charge a cancellation fee, unless cancellation occurs less than two business days before agreed dates. Our cancellation fee for cancellations less than two business days ahead is $500. Otherwise, the advance payment is refunded aside from time spent on the matter. Participants agree to pay the Mediator’s fee for services rendered in the amount of $600.00 per hour ($300.00 per party) with fee minimums. Fees are based on time expended by Mediator. Fees shall be shared equally by the Participants, unless a different arrangement is made. Fees are charged for time spent in preparation and follow-up for the mediation (reviewing briefs/statements, site inspection, etc.), the mediation session, telephone calls and travel time. Participants agree to make a deposit of $3,600.00 ($1,800.00 each if two sides) for eight (8) hours of mediation. Said deposit will be forfeited and the canceling party(ies) will be responsible for that deposit if the cancellation/continuance of the mediation occurs less than fifteen (15) days prior to the scheduled mediation date unless the mediator’s time can be rescheduled with another matter. Unused session time is not refundable. If the cancellation/continuance occurs fifteen (15) days or more prior to the mediation the deposit will be refunded except for time incurred. There shall be a 1.5% monthly late payment charge on any amount unpaid for more than thirty (30) days.
WE DO NOT CHARGE FOR ALL TIME SPENT: We do not charge for one preliminary telephone conference to confirm all administrative details, and if the mediation is not successful we will, at no charge, consult twice on the phone with the parties should further effort be requested.
