MEDIATION CANCELLATION POLICY
Our cancellation policy is three weekdays regardless of holidays. To avoid the minimum fee, our office must be notified via email prior to the date and time indicated in your confirmation email for a particular mediation/arbitration.
Please note that for us to remain neutral, it is our policy to bill all parties equally for their portion of our minimum fees regardless of which party cancels a session or why it was canceled, even if it is being rescheduled, has settled, or one side is still willing to move forward.
