Fees & Costs
Mediation or Arbitration: Fees are split equally by the litigants unless other arrangements are agreed to in advance.
Amount in Dispute:
Greater than $100,000: $2,500 for each ½ day of hearing or $625/hour, whichever is less for the litigants
$100,000 or less: $2,000 for each ½ day of hearing.
Minimum deposit: $1,000 from each party.
If you have been tasked with comparison shopping on price, here are some additional considerations:
1) There are no additional charges for preparation or intake time.
2) My rates may be lower because I personally handle the communication with the parties, and do not involve additional staff in coordinating the hearings.
3) I do not require that the parties travel to my office for the hearing. We will conduct the hearing at a mutually agreed upon site or via videoconferencing (i.e., ZOOM) that is convenient for the participants.
