Mediation services are available Monday through Friday, for full days or half days. Evening start times and weekends are available by special request.
RATES AND HOW WE WORK
All mediations are billed at $300.00 per hour, in 15 minute increments, divided equally among the parties unless otherwise agreed.
A minimum of two (2) hours will be charged per party for half day mediations and a minimum of four ($) hours will be charged for full day mediations.
We never charge an administrative or scheduling fee. However, in the event that you choose to send voluminous materials in advance of medation, we reserve the right to bill for our time to review at the above quoted mediation rate.
For mediations that take place outside Palm Beach or Broward Counties, travel time is billed at a reduced rate of $200 per hour, divided equally among all parties. For mediations that take place at a Court reporter's office or a business center or other location by whom we are charged, we shall pass through such charge to the parties without markup.
Counsel for the respective parties are responsible for timely payment of mediation fees and charges, WITHIN 10 DAYS OF MEDIATION. Checks should be payable to Mediation & Closure Group, EIN #81-4493305.
If your mediation requires cancellation or rescheduling, we ask that you please provide us with as much advance notice as possible so that we have the opportunity to make your time slot available to others. Notwithstanding, a cancellation due to settlement or without the possibility of rescheduling, less than two (2) business days prior to the date scheduled for mediation will result in a charge equivalent to the two (2) hour minimum divided equally between the parties.
A free open lot is available directly in front of the entrances to the building.
If any of the participants have any special safety or health concerns, or other special needs, please advise our office prior to the date of the mediation.
CONFIDENTIALITY AND MEDIATOR IMMUNITY
In the event that the mediation is voluntary or other than a court ordered mediation, all participants acknowledge and agree that the mediation shall be conducted as though court ordered, and, therefore, all statutes and rules with respect to mediator immunity and mediation confidentiality apply. If the parties agree to allow non-parties to participate, such non-party participants shall be bound by the same rules of confidentiality governing the parties.
