Notice of cancelation must be received at least seven full calendar days in advance of the hearing date.

I do not bill for deposits in advance of mediations and half day arbitrations. Waivers of the cancelation fee are granted only in extraordinary circumstances. It is rare that I am able to backfill time within seven days prior to a hearing. If I am able to do so, the time will be credited.

ARBITRATIONS SCHEDULED FOR ONE OR MORE DAYS

A deposit is due for the full arbitration fee at least sixty days before the arbitration hearing.

Notice of cancelation must be received at least forty-five days in advance of the hearing date to avoid forfeiture of the deposit. Every reasonable effort will be made to backfill the time. If I am able to do so, the time will be credited.
