Travel Expenses:
When the location of a mediation or arbitration hearing is set at a distance of more than 30 miles from Downtown Los Angeles, travel time to and from that location is charged at a rate of 50% of the hourly rate.  Should any hearings be held at venues more than 30 miles from Downtown Los Angeles and should such hearings take place on consecutive days, billing for a reasonably-priced hotel for each relevant night may be made instead of charging for extra travel time.  When it is appropriate to go to more distant locations, air travel and lodging costs will be estimated and charged, with any residue or shortfall to be reimbursed or further charged as appropriate.
