Probate fees in Washington are currently provided under RCW 11.48.210 as follows:
The amount set by the Decedent in his/her Will, or in the absence of such a specified amount

The amount determined by the Court to be "reasonable and just."

That page also states:
One rule of thumb in setting compensation is to provide a rate that is comparable to the rate of compensation that the Representative is paid at his/her regular, full-time job.
