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.

Without Sherman’s expertise and understanding of construction disputes we would not have reached the outcome we did which was faster and less costly than any alternative. We really appreciate what he did for our case and the way he handled things even with multiple, difficult and unyielding parties. If the need arises, I will use him again.
