Rates Information

FLORIDA CERTIFIED MEDIATOR #5043CFRA Marathon, Florida 33050 (305)743-0375
Mediation Services are billed at the rate of $400/hour. Each separately represented party is responsible for payment of an equal share of the mediation fee (e.g. $200/hour for each party in a two party mediation).
There is a two hour minimum charge for mediation ($800).
All mediation services are provided online using the Zoom conferencing platform. Upon booking a mediation all participants will be required to execute an Agreement to Mediate Online stating the terms of the mediator’s engagement as well as other terms under which the mediation is to be conducted.
Unless other arrangements are made with the mediator in advance of the mediation, all parties are to remit payment to the mediator on the date of mediation. We accept payment by ACH Bank Transfer, Mastercard, VISA or American Express.
Notwithstanding the fact that counsel is acting as agent for a disclosed principal, the attorney’s client, in consideration of the mediator setting aside time to mediate this dispute without requiring prepayment of fees, each party’s attorney, if any, undertakes also to be responsible for timely delivery of that party’s fees.
WE SCHEDULE ONLY ONE MEDIATION PER DAY AND DO NOT “DOUBLE- BOOK” MEDIATION TIME. Therefore, notice of a cancellation or postponement of a scheduled mediation conference must be received at least 3 full business days (i.e. excludes intervening weekends or federal holidays) prior to the scheduled commencement of the mediation conference. Absent such timely notification, the parties will be billed their pro rata share of a $800.00 cancellation fee.
