Fee Schedule

Our hourly rate is $425/hour. A non-refundable administrative fee of $50 is due when scheduling the mediation.  Each party will be assigned a prorated share of the fees, unless agreed to otherwise in advance of scheduling a hearing. The hourly fee for the estimated and scheduled hearing time in addition to the administrative fee shall be paid in advance of the hearing date. Such fees will be the joint and several obligation of all counsel. Please note that counsel, not  the  represented  party,  has  contracted  for the neutral’s services. Accordingly, counsel will be held responsible for payment of all charges associated with the neutral’s services in this matter.

Administrative Fees

The Pokorny Mediations non-refundable administrative fee is assessed once a hearing has been scheduled on your case. Each party is responsible for this fee, even in the event of a timely cancellation.
