Mediation & Arbitration Fees


Half-day mediation session (either 8:30 am to 12:00 noon or 1:00 pm to 4:30 pm) with snacks provided:

  • $550.00 per party for 1/2 day mediation with two parties, and
  • $500.00 per party for 1/2 day mediation with three or more parties.

Full-day mediation session (9:00 am to 5:00 pm) with snacks and lunch provided:

  • $1,200.00 per party for full day mediation with two parties, and
  • $1000.00 per party for full-day mediation with three or more parties.

By-the-hour mediation sessions, including early morning and after work, and Saturday morning mediations are also available. Please contact our office manager, Deborah, for details.

Mediations that exceed their scheduled time will be billed at $300.00 per hour with final cost to be divided equally among the parties.

Mediation fees are charged on a “per party” basis. The number of parties is determined by counting all parties who are represented by the same attorney as one party. Additionally, if one party is represented by more than one attorney, that party is still considered as one party. Parties with aligned interests are considered as separate parties if they have separate attorneys. Mediation fees shall be deemed fully earned at the commencement of the mediation session. Payment of the mediation fee is due not later than the commencement of the mediation session.


Our normal arbitration fee is $4,500 per day, divided equally among the parties, for each day required for the hearing. In complex cases, additional time at an hourly rate may be charged for pre-hearing preparation time and for post-hearing deliberation and drafting.


Requests for off-site sessions are easily accommodated but there will be additional charges for travel and accomodations (if needed). Please call for details.


There is no charge for cancellation or rescheduling of your mediation. We understand "life happens."
