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

I have had the pleasure of working with Sherman Knight in mediation of several complex multiparty construction related disputes. Sherman works hard, is always well prepared and has a phenomenal ability to quickly grasp the salient issues and bring the parties together to a successful resolution. He brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the table, and presents himself in a calm and gracious manner that immediately puts the parties at ease. I can heartily recommend Sherman Knight to you, as I have to many of my colleagues.
