I will require a retainer deposited in advance, decided on a case-by-case basis.

If a date is reserved, the mediation/hearing is expected to begin on time.

Fees are as follows (effective 7-1-22):

    • $550 per hour (4 hour session minimum)

    • No charge for time spent on initial scheduling.

    • No charge for file setup.

    • No administrative fees.

    • Preparation time at normal hourly rate

    • Retainer at $5000 per day

A cancellation within twenty-one calendar days of a scheduled session is subject to a $1000 fee. If the matter is heard later, half the late cancellation charge is credited.
