Fees Schedule & Guarantee of Satisfaction
St. Louis Mediation Center


The St. Louis Mediation Center cannot guarantee the outcome of a mediation or that a case will end up in a settlement.  However, we do guarantee that you will find the accommodations, mediation style and your experience here to be first-class.  If you have a complaint about any aspect of your experience here (other than the outcome of the mediation) advise us of the nature of your complaint before you leave for the day and there will be no charge for your portion of the mediation.

Generally, fees are set depending upon the amount in controversy, the number of parties involved, and the complexity of the dispute.  The cost to each party for most mediation and arbitration sessions is usually less than each party would spend on costs and attorney's fees for a deposition.

The flat rate fee is based on a full day session, beginning at 9:30 a.m. and includes a catered lunch for all participants.  A day ends at midnight.  There is no charge for parking or telephone usage (including long distance charges).  There is no administrative charge or cancellation fee.  All fees include all administrative activities and a limited amount of post-mediation telephone conferences.


Unless unique circumstances dictate a different result, each party (multiple persons or parties represented by the same counsel are considered one party) will share an equal portion of all mediation fees.  The St. Louis Mediation Center will accept cases where one or more parties are pro se, however, pro se parties are also expected to equally share in the payment of fees.

"...you did an excellent job in assisting the parties to settle this case.  I think your approach, while low key is very effective.  You were especially helpful to me in getting my client to realize that what I had told him was  accurate and realistic."
