Mediation Services are billed as follows:
I am available to work statewide. There is no charge for travel to the following Counties: Pasco, , Polk, Pinellas, Manatee and Sarasota. Travel to other parts of the state will be dealt with on a case to case basis.
$350.00 per hour for two sides;
$375.00 per hour for three sides;
$400.00 per hour for four or more sides;
$100.00 per hour additional for mediations on weekends or holidays.
Two hour minimum is charged for half day mediation conferences (9:00 to 1:00 or 1:30 to end). Four hour minimum is charged for full day mediation conferences.
Each mediation is billed one-half hour administrative time plus actual preparation time. I do not charge for, copies, postage, lunch, long distance telephone charges, travel or office space, if required.
I schedule only one mediation conference per day and do not “DOUBLE-BOOK” mediation time. Therefore, notice of cancellation or postponement of a scheduled mediation conference must be received at least 3 full business days prior to the scheduled commencement of the mediation conference. Absent such timely notice, the parties will be billed their pro rata share of a $500.00 cancellation fee.
Responsibility of Attorneys:
Notwithstanding the fact that counsel is acting as agent for the attorney’s client(s), counsel specifically undertakes to be responsible for timely delivery of the fees owed by their client(s).
