Traffic Ticket Defense


Speeding traffic ticket attorney in Tacoma, Pierce County, WA

Let Us Fight Your Washington Traffic Ticket For You! Traffic tickets are more than just a nuisance. Though you can readily dispose of most tickets by simply signing your citation on the back, admitting guilt and sending in your fine or doing it online, the problem is that traffic fines can be several hundred dollars and result in a point, or points, on your driving record. Get too many points and you will have your license suspended.

Your other alternative is to fight your ticket and this is where Michael Harbeson comes in. Having a local, licensed and experienced traffic attorney representing you will give you the best opportunity to get your ticket dismissed, obtain a not guilty verdict or have the violation reduced so that no points appear on your record and your insurance premiums are unaffected.
