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.

 

Partial-Day Fees

Fees are $450 per party for a minimum of four (4) hours. See cancellation policy.

 

Full-Day Fees

When a full day of mediation is expected, the rate will be $1,200 per party, based on eight (8) hours. See cancellation policy.

 

Overtime Fees

If the mediation extends past eight (8) hours for a full-day or four (4) hours for a partial-day, then each party will be charged the hourly fee of $125. Please be prepared to bring a debit or credit card to use our PayPal option.

***ALL FEES ARE NONREFUNDABLE AND MAY BE USED TO SCHEDULE MEDIATION AT ANOTHER DATE***
