Mr. Menard’s mediation services are offered on either a half or full-day basis. The half-day rate of $1,800 includes four hours of mediation time; the full-day rate of $3,000 includes eight hours of mediation time. These rates include pre-mediation communications, preparation time and local travel. The parties are charged $375 an hour for any additional mediation time and non-local travel. The parties are responsible for any out-of-pocket expenses.
Unless modified by the parties’ prior written agreement, each party and counsel are jointly and severally responsible for their pro-rata share of all mediation fees and expenses.
The initial mediation fee is due upon confirmation of a reserved hearing date. Payment is required to preserve the hearing date. Fees for any additional mediation time and expenses are due at the conclusion of the mediation session or upon the subsequent submission of an Invoice, at Mr. Menard’s discretion.
Fees are non-refundable if a mediation date is cancelled within fourteen days of the scheduled date unless Mr. Menard is able to schedule another mediation for that date. If the mediation is cancelled beyond fourteen days, the deposited fees are returned less a $200 per party administrative cancellation fee.
