Mediation Fee Schedule
Full Day Mediations: Full day mediation fees are $1800.00 per party and will convene at 9:00 a.m. and include a working lunch. Mediations that go beyond 5:00 p.m. will be conducted at the rate of $450.00 per hour and be split evenly between the parties.
Half Day Mediations: Half day mediations are $1000.00 per party and will be conducted during either 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. or 1:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m. In the event that a half day mediation should need to go beyond the four hour window, the additional time will be charged at $450.00 per hour and be split between the parties.
Full and half day mediation fees include preparation time, any pre-mediation conferences and other communication. Additional fees will apply for travel outside the Dallas-Ft. Worth area and any overnight stay(s) and/or airfare that is required. Lunch is provided at no additional charge for all participants in full day mediations only.
All parties represented by the same attorney are considered one “party” for purposes of the mediation fee.
Payment and Cancellation: Full payment is due from each party no later than three business days prior to the scheduled mediation day. If the mediation is cancelled less than three business days prior to the scheduled mediation, the fees will be refunded less a cancellation fee of $250.00 per party.
Fees for Other Services
Fees for Early Dispute Resolution work (where no formal mediation full day or half day session has been scheduled) and for Facilitation projects will be billed at the hourly rate of $400.00 per hour. However, alternative fee structures are possible depending on the scope of the project.
