Knapp Counsel PDF Print E-mail

We will act as Knapp counsel if it is not financially possible for us to take over the entire case. This means that we will associate with the appointed lawyer to provide assistance to the case. This arrangement is specifically authorized by Knapp v. Hardy, 111 Ariz. 107, 523 P. 2d 1308 (Ariz. 1974).

The fees for providing Knapp services vary, but are based on what assistance should be provided. Generally Knapp fees are around half of what full litigation fees would be.

This arrangement also has the advantage of being able to have the government pay for costs and experts. Knapp arrangements work particularly well where the case is in a rural county and travel time and costs increase the fees required to assume full responsibility for a case.
