5.0 stars 26 totalReview Michael Frans
Mr. Frans works all of his cases with the same dedication as if it were his only one. He has earned the respect of not only his clients - but the courts, prosecutors and law enforcement. If you find yourself in need of a defense attorney, I would highly recommend meeting with Mr. Frans. His knowledge of the law and negotiating skills usually yield favorable results for his clients. Having worked in a prosecuting attorneys office - I have seen first hand his ability to get the best possible outcome.
I have had tremendous fortune after hiring Mike Frans with my DUI cases. After falling into addiction with alcohol I had accumulated multiple DUI's in Seattle. It has been a difficult few years but Mr. Frans had always been compassionate and never judgmental in helping me reach my goals and getting from point A to B. From preparation to the implementation of tactics/strategies, I know that he was well prepared and ready to execute every time he walked into the court room. The results were miraculous every time! I am at the tail end of my treatment and now I can finally say I regained control of my life again thanks to Mike Frans and his phenomenal services. Thank you for believing in me and helping me regain my life back when other attorneys walked away from my complex cases.

I highly recommend Michael Frans. He is very professional and knowledge about the law and the workings of the legal system. He was able to have my 2nd degree assault charge (which would count as “a strike”) dropped down to a 2nd degree criminal trespass charge (which is a simple misdemeanor). He worked hard with the Prosecution so that even this lesser charge will be dropped from my record after 12 months. Michael also assisted, free of charge, others involved in the case who had their own lawyers. His education and experience combine to make an excellent lawyer who really knows how to take care of business.

When i sat down with Mike to talk about my case i could tell right away i made the right choice. He was very confident and professional and eased my worries right away. My case was complicated and i saw myself paying out and going to jail. Mike saved my career, my license and my reputation. I paid a tiny fraction of what i thought i would and got out of the charge and jail time. Cant thank him enough.

Before taking my DUI case to trial, I hired Mr. Frans as part of my DUI defense counsel. Mr. Frans fought tirelessly in the courtroom for my best interest. He is very knowledgeable of the law and fights hard for his clients. His dedication to my cause and his unrelenting pressure on the prosecution is one of the crucial reasons that aided in my charges being dismissed. He is very kind and courteous and goes above and beyond for his clients. If you want the best in DUI defense. Hire Mike Frans!

I was lucky enough to find Mike Frans after meeting with several other Lawyers and nearly handing 10K over to one of them. Mike was my last meeting in my search for a lawyer to take on my DUI case, I had already decided to go with the high priced, high profile, Kirkland lawyer who had convinced me I was his only chance to get out of my DUI charge, but kept my meeting with Mike out of courtesy. I am so glad I did! Mike was no nonsense, no scare tactics and straightforward. He said my case was not a DUI, but a negligent driving, (I blew under the legal limit). He promised me he would get the charge dropped to Neg 1... and for less than half the price quoted by the other lawyer! (The other guy made no promises and led me to believe my situation was dire). I chose mike to handle my case not just because he was the least expensive lawyer I met with, but because he was clearly a straight shooter, not running a racket, a true professional. In court Mike was obviously well known and respected by the judge, prosecutor and other lawyers. My judge praised him in court for work he had done on another case. Through out the process I was told by several people who had worked with Mike that I was very lucky to have found him. The case lasted about as long as Mike predicted it would, and he got me the outcome he promised... Negligent driving in the 1st degree. Mike made a really horrible situation a lot less painful, I learned a big lesson, but avoided a big consequence. If you find yourself with a DUI charge, don't give in to scare tactics, meet with several lawyers, and make sure Mike is one of them.

I want to express how much I appreciate Michael Frans as my attorney. Michael asssited me in a situation that had I had him as my attorney in the beginning I would not have been in the situation Im in now. From the very first meeting with Michael he explained in detail what I was up against and there were no surprises in the end. Michael is very professional, honest, compassionate and trustworthy and would recommend him to anyone I know. Thank you Michael for everything you have no idea how much I appreciate what you did for me. :)

Mike represented me in two different cases. The first involved charges of DUI and Assault, and the other was another DUI case. In both instances, Mike was able to negotiate unbelieveable deals with the prosecutors. I truly believe that if I hadn't hired Mike, I would be in jail and my life would be over. He is kind and patient with his clients, and also professional and tough with the prosecution. Such a great combination. Anyone in need of a defense attorney who truly cares about his clients and can make good things happen should hire Mike immediately!!!

I was arrested back in August after police arrived to the scene of a collision. I had been coming around a turn and clipped a parked vehicle, pushing it into another parked car. I was on the sidewalk when they arrived and they asked me some questions. I refused to take a voluntary field sobriety test and they then arrested me for a DUI. Back at the station I blew a .202. Michael Frans was able to get my case dismissed on probable cause. He was an exceptional lawyer and always explained clearly my options and what was to be expected when headed in to the court room. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I was charged with assaulting my son and both the prosecutor's office and local police were intent on making sure the charges stuck. The residing judge showed bias towards the state in every motion we could make, to include stating that our star witness would be incredibly limited in their testimony. Through Mike's knowledge and expertise we were able to present our story to the jury and get a not guilty verdict! Mike kept me sane while advising me that the prosecutor's actions were merely attempts to get me to plea. I owe Mike big time and I highly recommend him.
