Arbitration Fees:

A case will be opened upon receipt of a $1,500.00 non-refundable Administrative Fee and a refundable Evergreen Retainer of $3,500.00. Upon opening a case, JWA will send the initial list of five potential Arbitrators or Special Judges to the parties to begin the selection process unless otherwise provided by the agreement.

All Evergreen Retainers are required to be replenished within 30 days of receipt of an invoice for fees incurred. Disbursements to the Arbitrators are made on a quarterly basis. In the event the Evergreen Retainer is not replenished within the allotted time, the case will be suspended and an additional non-refundable Late Fee is due by the party responsible for replenishing the Evergreen Retainer Fee.

Mediation Fees:

Parties wishing to initiate a Mediation with JWA should submit their pleadings. Once received, the Case Administrator will contact the parties regarding the details of the Mediation.

If the case is currently in Arbitration with JWA, a Mediator will be selected who is not the Arbitrator in the case. Mediations are billed as follows:  1/2 day is $1,000.00 per party; full day is $2,000.00 per party.
