Speeding ticket
I hired Michael for my speeding ticket on April of 2022. He was very successful in court. He was able to dismiss my ticket 101mph on 60mph. I will hire him again if I need a lawyer plus I do recommend him to others.

Awesome service
I carry commercial insurance and getting a ticket really makes the premiums go up. I was given a speeding ticket and I needed to keep it off my record. I sent Michael the ticket information and the fee and he took care of the rest. It couldn't be easier. Highly recommended!

Thanks Michael Sheehan!
I hired Michael to fight a ticket I got. The process was very easy and I didn't even need to go to court. Michael handled everything from start to finish. My ticket was dismissed and I don't have to worry about this going on my record. He has helped my son as well. I will continue to refer everyone I know to him.

Great lawyer highly recommend
I got a traffic ticket awhile for speeding and as soon as I called Michael Sheehan I was greeted with someone who was very kind and listened to what I had to say and took care of the ticket completely. All I had to do was wait for the email from them letting me know my ticket was completely taken care of. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a lawyer to help with traffic tickets.

Exceeded My Expectations!
I am so impressed with Michael Sheehan and his office. I got a speeding ticket for 11 miles over. The officer clocked me when he was driving downhill around a bend. When I looked down I was going 5 over which I know is still speeding but typically doesn't warrant getting pulled over. Michael Sheehan to the rescue. Every phone call or email was answered in the most speedy and efficient manner. He put all my concerns to rest and appeared in Court where my ticket was dismissed. I am so relieved. I have a teenage driver and another with a learner's permit. I was so worried about my insurance rates going up even more. His prices are so reasonable. He has probably saved me hundreds of dollars in insurance hikes. I hope I do not get a ticket again, but if I or anyone in my family does again I know exactly who to contact. I appreciate so much a job well done!

Highly recommend Michael Sheehan
I was going 15 mph over the speed limit in a small Eastern WA community. No prior tickets. Michael's name was given to me. Effortless, a 5 minute phone call to Michael, and 3 months later I received a letter from him saying all was handled: charges dismissed with nothing on my driving record.

Made this such an easy process
I contacted Michael, he picked up right away. I told him my son had received a ticket in the mail 3 months after an accident for driving to fast for conditions. The officer who showed up 3 hours after the fact told him he just needed his information and he wouldn't get a ticket. He is 18 and believed him. Michael told me exactly how he would help me, what I would and wouldn't have to do, and said I would receive a letter from him when things were complete. I have to admit I was a bit nervous as to if this would really happen and it did. I would 1005% recommend him!

Fanstastic Lawyer
I have hired Mr. Michael Sheehan to represent myself in court twice within the past years (speeding tickets). Both times, he got my case dismissed with almost no effort from myself. All the effort I put in was simply telling him I got the tickets. I highly recommend this Mr. Sheehan to anyone and everyone who wants a ticket taken care of.

"I have referred traffic ticket matters to a few different attorneys over the years. However, since 2010, I have referred solely to Mr. Sheehan. This is because I know that Mike takes care of every one of his clients. I believe he is, without question, the best traffic ticket attorney in the state and I don't believe one puts themselves in a better position to fight a ticket than they do with Mike. I have referred several clients, family members, and friends to Mike Sheehan and have never heard anything but glowing reviews."

"Micheal has handled several matters for me in a professional and expeditious manner. The results were excellent and the price was right. I would recommend him without hesitation."
Speeding and traffic ticket Attorney | Oct 28
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Michael Sheehan is one of Washington State's top speeding and traffic ticket attorneys. Simply put. The man gets results. No experienced traffic lawyer can ever guarantee any outcome. Michael, however, consistently gets most of his tickets dismissed, and he works extremely hard to keep any moving violation off your record. If you have a Washington state speeding or traffic ticket, look no further. He's your man. I have personally worked with Michael on a number of traffic cases. His knowledge and expertise with regard to Washington's speeding and traffic laws are second to none. It would be impossible for me to recommend him any more highly. On a scale of 10 to 10. He's a 10."
Speeding and traffic ticket Attorney | Oct 28
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Mike has handled multiple speeding tickets for me and my friends. He has consistently delivered fantastic results. In almost every instance he was able to secure dismissal of the ticket. I know that he cannot guarantee this result for anyone, but he has proven that he knows this area of the law extremely well. He also knows all the workings of the court system, which pays off handsomely. Just as important as the results is Mike's professional handling of a case from the moment it comes in the door. He immediately removes any worry you may have about the process and you are left with confidence that the matter will be handled as well as possible. I recommend Mike wholeheartedly and will continue to send my business and that of my friends to him."
