Rates Information

Accord ADR Group charges on an hourly basis for our services. We hold counsel responsible for payment of our fees.

Our mediators’ hourly rates are billed for preparation time, mediation sessions, and time which may exceed typical follow up work.
Mr. Clymer’s hourly rate is $400; Mr. McQuiston’s hourly rate is $375; and Mr. Gunning's hourly rate is $360.

When a scheduled mediation session is vacated with less than 14 days’ notice, a fee will be assessed to cover one-half the time booked (i.e., two hours for one-half day mediations, and four hours for full-day mediations).  This applies whether or not the case is rescheduled.
