Mediation rates include all reasonable preparatory and follow-up time and all basic office expenses associated with the mediation. Ancillary work or unanticipated time in excess of half-day or full-day appointments will be billed at an hourly rate of $300 per hour to be split equally among the parties.
A nonrefundable fee deposit of $1,500 per party is required to register the case. The registration deposit will, however, be credited to the arbitration fees charged. Arbitration fees are billed at the rate of $350 per hour for work performed. Fees are divided equally between the parties unless otherwise awarded by the Arbitrator.
Upon receipt of the registration fees, a scheduling conference is promptly held to set discovery deadlines and the trial date.
