Mediation Fee Schedule

Time and Duration

A full-day mediation typically begins at 9:00 a.m., includes a working lunch and continues until completed. While most sessions conclude by approximately 5:00 p.m., a session may extend into the evening. Two hour mediations usually begin at 9:00 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 2:00 p.m. or 4:30 p.m. Three and four hour mediations will usually begin at 9:00 or 1:00 p.m. If your preferred start time differs, we will do our best to accommodate you.

Weekends are available for mediation if requested by the parties or required by scheduling limitations. If the mediation session occurs on a weekend, a supplemental charge of $200 – $400 will be allocated amongst the parties for support staff overtime and building HVAC costs.

A few cases require more than one mediation session. If needed, subsequent sessions are usually scheduled by mutual consent at the completion of the mediation day. If the parties initially request that more than one successive mediation day be scheduled, then the full fee for all scheduled sessions is due and earned upon commencement of the first day of mediation.

Mediation Fee

All parties represented by the same attorney are considered a single “party” for purposes of the mediation fee. Payment of the mediation fee should be tendered within ten (10) days of the date the mediation is scheduled, but in no event later than commencement of the mediation session.
