Each party to a mediation pays a non-refundable administrative fee, which currently is $125. Then, unless the parties agree otherwise, all fees and out-of-pocket costs for services provided are split evenly between the parties to the mediation. This includes time spent by the mediator working before, during or after the scheduled mediation session. Our hourly fee for mediation services currently is $295. At that rate, the fee for an eight-hour day is $2,360. When travel time is charged, it is billed at $165 per hour. In some instances, we can reduce or avoid travel time by combining work in other cases.
