          Cancellation Policy:

          Mediations or arbitrations cancelled more than 14 days in advance incur no cancellation fee. Due to the difficulty of scheduling on short notice, appointments cancelled less than 14 days in advance incur the minimum charge above. We will work hard to fill that time, however, and if another mediation is scheduled, then you will not be charged. We encourage the parties to use the reserved time for another matter.


          Due to the convenience and efficiency of Zoom, all in-person mediations are assessed a travel fee (portal to portal) charged at 50% of the hourly rate. This is waived for Full Day appointments in Broward, Palm Beach, and Martin Counties, as well as Ives Dairy Road locations in Miami-Dade County. Please confirm in person appointments with our office before scheduling (we will place a hold) so that we can confirm that the Neutral is available to travel that day.
