Mediation Service Fees
The hearing fee is $300.00 per hour, and is to be shared by the parties on an equal basis, unless otherwise agreed; however, payment of all fees and expenses remains a joint and several liability amongst all parties and counsel as to their respective shares.
The hearing fee will include the time reserved for hearing; and, in addition, but not limited to, review of records, briefs, depositions, research and, in the case, of arbitration, deliberation time. The fee for the reserved hearing time is due and payable at the time the matter is scheduled.
If the hearing is cancelled or rescheduled, a $100.00 administrative fee will be charged to the party requesting the change, if the request is made ten (10) or more days prior to the scheduled hearing. If the hearing is cancelled or rescheduled less than ten (10) days prior to the hearing, the full fee for said hearing would be charged. If, however, another matter is scheduled in its place, only the administrative fee will be charged.
Travel Time and Expenses
Travel time and expenses will not be charged for mediations in Orange, San Bernardino, Los Angeles or Riverside Counties. Outside of this area, travel time charges and expenses are subject to negotiation with the parties.
Arrangements can be made to conduct the mediation at the mediator’s office, or at the office of counsel for one of the parties.
