Mediated Negotiations (5 ½ hours) or Arbitrations (6 hours)
$1,850 per law firm (reduced by $350/firm for the Springfield-Deerfield area).
The fee for mediated negotiations (but not arbitrations) includes lunch at our locations
in Sturbridge and Deerfield. Our Springfield and Worcester locations do not provide lunch, so the fee there is reduced by $50/firm. If you provide the location, the fee is reduced by an additional $50/firm.
The fee can be waived in cases of financial hardship if the matter qualifies for pro bono treatment.
Additional time is billed at $250 per hour per party
Cancellation/Postponement Policy - the party responsible for the cancellation/postponement is charged:
a) one-fourth of its hearing fee if there is less than 15 days but more than 48 hours notice;
b) its full hearing fee if there is less than 48 hours notice.
If the parties dispute responsibility, or if the case settles, they divide the charge equally.
