Fees

Mediation / Arbitration

Mr. Knight’s rate is $285 per hour for both Mediations and Arbitrations. This amount is typically split between the parties. The parties will be billed at the end of the process.

If a party is pro se, a retainer is required before the mediation. This retainer reflects a full eight hour day plus 4 hours of preparation time. Any funds not expended will be returned to the parties within 5 business days of the conclusion of the process.

Currently there are special rates for homeowner disputes involving a veteran of Iraq or Afghanistan.

No fee is charged for travel within one hour of Mr. Knight’s office. Mr. Knight only charges 1/2 of travel time to the areas around Port Angeles. All other travel arrangements will be on a case-by-case basis.

Quick Links

We recently entrusted the mediation of a multi-party commercial property damage case to Mr. Knight, on the strength of a recommendation by one of the attorneys involved in the case. Mr. Knight proved himself to be a closer. He employed excellent listening skills, analytical skills, taking important cues from decision makers to put together a workable deal. I can recommend Mr. Knight as a mediator and hope to work with him again in the future.
