My hourly rate for mediation- or arbitration-related services is $450.00. I charge only for the time preparing for, and participating in, the mediation or arbitration. Meaning, even if a session is booked for all day, I will only charge for the time at the session. Within Arizona, I do not charge for either travel time or travel-related expenses. Outside of Arizona, I charge for reasonable travel and lodging accommodations, if needed, but do not charge for travel time.
