Civil Dispute Fees
We have customized our hourly rates to make our services available for cases both large and small. Rates range from $200 ($300 in DC) to $575 ($675 in DC) depending on jurisdiction, Neutral chosen, and case demand. If the case is not based on monetary values, arises from a venue outside of VA, MD, or DC, or is otherwise extraordinary, TMG will determine the appropriate rate based on the available information.
The hourly rate applies to all of the Neutral’s professional time. Generally, travel time will be billed at 50% of the hourly rate (100% for cases convened outside of VA/MD/DC). Reasonable out-of-pocket expenses such as hotels, tolls, third party conference call charges, etc. will be billed.
Fees and expenses are typically divided evenly between the parties unless otherwise agreed. (A party is defined as a single client or any number of clients represented by a single law firm.) The lawyer/law firm may be responsible for payment. If the lawyer/law firm does not wish to be the responsible payer (and in some instances, as required by TMG), it will be necessary for the party to establish a satisfactory retainer account with TMG before any professional services may be rendered.
There are no filing, continuance, cancellation, or other administrative fees.
