Two Party Rates

Mediation services will be furnished at the rate of $275.00 per hour for two party mediations.  


Three or More Party Rates

Mediation services will be furnished at the rate of $100.00 per hour per party in multiple party matters.


Mediation Rooms  [UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE ALL MEDIATIONS WILL BE VIA ZOOM OR TELEPHONE]

I do not have conference rooms at my office.  Mediation room charges are not included in the above rates.  Mediations can be held at the office of one of the attorneys or a conference center or court reporter's office.  Room arrangements are up to the parties.


Minimums

There is a 3 hour minimum per mediation or party as applicable for a standard mediation scheduled for three hours. The fee shall be divided equally between or among the parties unless otherwise agreed before or at the mediation.


Travel Time

There is no travel time charge for mediations in Hillsborough, Pinellas, Polk, Manatee or Pasco Counties or in Brooksville. Travel to all other locations will be billed at the rate of $150.00 per hour.  Of course there is no travel charge for online mediation conferences.


Payment

Payment is appreciated within 20 days following the date of the mediation.  I will not extend credit to anyone except attorneys.  If your client is paying for the mediation conference, please make sure they bring a check to the conference.  Unrepresented parties must pay the their share of the minimum fee at least ten days before the scheduled conference or the conference will be cancelled.


Arbitration Fees

Arbitration Fees are the same as the fees for Mediation except there is a maximum of $2,000 per day for multi-day Arbitration hearings.
