Fee Schedule


Fee Schedule

Effective January 1, 2013

Mediation fees are charged on the basis of a fixed fee per party for each day or half day of mediation and payable in advance.

The mediation fee is based upon (1) the number of parties; and (2) the amount in controversy, including all claims, counter-claims, cross-claims, and attorney’s fees.

All parties represented by the same attorney are considered to be a single party in calculating the mediation fee.

Full Day Mediations will usually begin at 9:30 a.m, include a working lunch, and end at 5:30 p.m. Those continuing past the allotted eight (8) hours will result in an additional charge of $100.00 per party for each additional hour, at the mediatior's discretion.

Half Day Mediations will usually begin at 9:30 a.m.,or 1:30 p.m. Those continuing longer than four (4) hours will result in an additional charge of $100.00 per party for each additional hour, at the mediator's sole discretion.

CANCELLATIONS:

Late cancellation of a mediation causes problems for the mediator and all parties involved. Mediations canceled later than seven (7) calendar days prior to the scheduled mediation date will result in a charge of $700.00 to the cancelling party for a full day of mediation and $350.00 to the cancelling party for a half day mediation.

If the mediation is rescheduled and conducted within sixty (60) days of the original date, the party charged with the cancellation fee will be credited with one-half of cancellation fee upon the conduct of the rescheduled mediation.

ADDITIONAL EXPENSES:
It is sometimes necessary to incur additional expenses for large, multi-party complex cases, including additional conference rooms or other facilities. Additional charges will be disclosed in advance of the mediation, and will be included in the mediation invoice prior to the
beginning of the mediation and paid with the basic mediation fee.
