Arbitration

separator

Similar to a judge, an arbitrator is hired as an impartial decision-maker to hear and render judgment on disputed issues based on what the law allows. While arbitration takes place outside the courthouse, often in the arbitrator’s office, preparation for arbitration is similar to preparation for a trial. Arbitration is considered a special proceeding and is governed by a Uniform Arbitration Act in Washington (RCW 7.04A).
