Rates & Cancelation Policy
Hourly Billing Rates
$200/hour/party for 2 parties
$175/hour/party for 3 parties
$150/hour/party for 4 or more parties
NOTE: A “party” is defined as all parties represented by the same counsel.
If the mediation is cancelled or rescheduled less than 72 hours (Monday-Friday) prior to the scheduled session, each party will be billed for their portion of the minimum fee. Please keep in mind this cancellation policy is meant to fairly compensate the mediator for reserving the time scheduled for this mediation which typically cannot be filled in less than 72 hours.
For a “half day” mediation (i.e., a mediation which is scheduled for 4 hours or less) the minimum fee is three (3) hours. For a “full day” mediation (i.e., a mediation that is scheduled for six hours or more) the minimum fee is six (6) hours.
All fees are calculated using the per hour rates above, and all invoices are due upon receipt. Following the conclusion of the mediation, each party will be billed for their portion of the fee, unless the parties agree otherwise. Payments should be made in accordance with the payment instructions on the invoice.
Please note, we accept and schedule matters based on our business and professional relationship with counsel, but we consider engagements as being with counsel and their clients, jointly and severally. Accordingly, counsel for each party is financially responsible for ensuring timely payment of all mediation fees. In the event prompt payment is not received, we reserve the right to take appropriate actions to collect payment including filing motions with the presiding court. Furthermore, by scheduling matters, counsel and their clients agree that we shall be entitled to collect all our costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, if we must take action to collect the mediation fees.
It is in their best interest that counsel and their clients become familiar with the state of South Carolina’s ADR Rules, which governs the processes of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) in the courts.

What People Are Saying
Regina Lewis has served as the mediator in several of my cases. I am impressed with her willingness to hear both sides and give insightful feedback on the differences between the case viewpoints. Regina is dedicated to resolving tough mediations even when we have reached an impasse on the day of mediation. With Regina’s assistance, we were able to resolve a particularly challenging mediation weeks after the actual mediation took place. I strongly recommend her mediation services.
