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:  $1500 for each ½ day of hearing or $395/hour, whichever is less for the litigants

$100,000 or less:          $1000 for each ½ day of hearing or $275/hour, whichever is less for the litigants

 

Minimum deposit:           $500 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 that is convenient for the participants. If necessary, I can help secure the site with the understanding that any rental cost will be split equally between the parties unless other arrangements have been made.
