What is Mediation?
Mediation is a process where an impartial, trained mediator helps negotiate the settlement of a dispute. The mediator helps the disputing parties communicate with each other to settle their immediate dispute, and to promote reconciliation and understanding between them. Mediation proceedings are confidential as a matter of Texas law. However, a mediated settlement agreement is usually admissible into the court records of the settled dispute.
How Much does Mediation cost?
We charge a flat fee of $350. per side in a typical case. The fee remains the same whether the mediation takes only one hour, or takes all day. In cases where both sides and the mediator agree to continue a mediation beyond 5:00 P.M., both sides will be charged an after-hours fee of $100 per hour or part of an hour. In all out-of-area cases, both sides will be charged an additional fee of $50. The fee for all Justice of the Peace cases ranges between $150. and $350. a side. Call us for verification of the cost for the kind of case you are considering or mediation. (830) 792-5000 or (888) 292-1502
