Our Fees

Our fees are based on the services you choose and the complexity of the issues involved.

Our standard hourly fee for collaborative practice and mediation is $200 to $250 per hour.  The retainer required for a mediation will usually vary between $2000 to $4,000 depending on the services you require and the complexity of the situation. The retainer for collaborative practice will generally be $3500 and above. 

Generally, our hourly rate and retainer are less for mediation and collaborative practice than in-court divorce. 

Any unearned portion of the retainer is fully refundable. We will discuss up front what fees to expect for your particular matter during our free one hour consultation.
