Scott Goering has an hourly rate of $250, with a two-hour minimum of $500. The deposit is paid prior to mediator commencing work on the case. While there are no administrative or set-up fees, up to one hour of this time may be used to review any mediation briefs or to interview parties prior to the beginning of the mediation. Unless agreed otherwise by the parties, all charges will be split evenly by all parties to the mediation. Fees are calculated in quarter-hour increments. If there are more than two parties to the conflict, the hourly rates increase to $300 per hour, again with a two-hour minimum.
Scott may be available to travel to mediation sites outside San Francisco at a travel rate of $125/hour.
Scott is happy to make his own San Francisco conference space available for mediations at no charge. However, any alternate space rental, if necessary, is paid by the clients, at a rate of approximately $30-$80/hour, depending on the needs of the parties.
Mediation clients who cancel less than 72 hours before the scheduled time will forfeit their $500 deposit.
