OVER 2,100 FIVE STAR REVIEWS. THOUSANDS OF TICKETS DISMISSED! PRACTICING SINCE '95.

Dan Samas has been an attorney since 1995, when he first began defending clients who received speeding and traffic tickets. The motorists Dan initially represented were mainly taxi drivers, whose livelihood was often at stake. He has successfully represented thousands of motorists in speeding/ traffic ticket cases. Dan believes that a contributing factor to his success as a traffic defense lawyer comes from understanding the prospective of the prosecution. On the prosecutor’s side, Dan Samas worked for both a Federal District Judge in Manhattan and the District Attorney’s office.

Unlike other speeding/ traffic defense attorneys who chose to focus on several areas of law and are sometimes spread thin, civil speeding and traffic defense is the Law Offices of Dan Samas' sole practice area. This has allowed Dan to develop a deeper understanding of traffic procedures and case law.

Dan Samas knows the importance of understanding the needs of clients and that the attorney client relationship is built on trust. In response, The Law Offices of Dan Samas offers free consultations and always charges a very reasonable flat fee for every civil speeding/ traffic case no matter how many attorney appearances are required (our clients usually do not appear in traffic court, saving them valuable time). The Law Offices of Dan Samas will fight to keep your speeding/ traffic ticket off of your DOL driving record so your insurance premiums remain in check

Dan has been selected as a Top 100 trial lawyer by National Trial Lawyers, an invitation-only organization composed of the premier trial lawyers from each state in the nation who meet stringent qualifications. Dan recently served as Chair of the Washington State Bar Association (WSBA) Rules for Appeal of Decisions of Courts of Limited Jurisdiction Subcommittee and has previously served as a member of the WSBA Infraction Rules Subcommittee (an organization that proposes statewide changes to the rules for traffic infractions). In addition to being a licensed attorney in Washington, New York, and the District of Columbia, Dan Samas earned his MBA at Purdue University and his bachelors degree in Applied Economics and Business Management from Cornell University. The Law Offices of Dan Samas serves all of greater Seattle including King, Snohomish, and Pierce counties.

Best traffic ticket attorney
I have used multiple attorneys for traffic tickets. I have the best experience working with Dan Samas. He is responsive and responsible following up for every step. He set up the right expectations initially. He is an attorney you can trust and depend on. Finally he got my ticket dismissed.

Don't think twice and hire Dan!
If you ever get a ticket, don't think twice and hire Dan. Dan got my case dismissed and the best thing is that that it won't even go to my driving record. He responds quickly and explains everything with a lot of detail. If you ever get a speed ticket, HOV, etc... don't think twice and hire him.

One of the best!
I am amazed by Dan service. It was quick, easy, reliable process. He was able to help my husband get his ticket dismissed without needing to appear at court especially that we are from out of state. Thank you Dan! You are one of the best!

Outstanding service from Mr. Samas
When I sent a request to ask Mr. Samas to be my attorney for my case, he responded immediately and shared very useful information with me. He ensured he would take care of my case and made me feel I could fully trust him. And the whole process went very smoothly and successfully, while I didn’t need to do anything. Really appreciate Mr. Samas for his best support and efforts in my case.

Dan is the best
Dan is the best attorney I have worked with. I discussed my case with Dan, and he patiently answered all the questions I had. After the call, I felt fully informed and confident about the next steps in my case. All I had to do was forget worrying about my case and be assured of the best possible outcome.

Successful outcome
Dan was extremely helpful with my traffic ticket. I felt overwhelmed and confused about why I got it in the first place, but Dan reassured me he would take care of everything and gave me the peace of mind I needed. I would recommend Dan anytime someone needs help.

Great lawyer!
I accidentally got a speeding ticket that would give me a bad record and raise my insurance costs for the next year. Attorney Samas represented me on this ticket, and it turns out my ticket has been dismissed! This is the best possible outcome. I will not owe anything to the court and the ticket will not appear on my Department of Licensing Driving record that my insurance reviews. Attorney Samas is very professional, patient and friendly. I am glad that he represented my ticket.

Great communication
Dan got me and my wife out of speeding tickets that had two very distinct circumstances. He communicates everything you need to know in simple terms. It only took me one phone call, and he took care of the rest with informational emails before and after the court date. I strongly recommend his services.

Great lawyer for traffic ticket!
Dan helped me with a driving ticket, and he managed to get a great deal on court on my behalf, without me present. I only need to take a course, no points reduction and no fine. Communication was great, and I never had to worry a thing. Highly recommend for anyone with a driving violation!

Speeding Ticket Dismissed
Working with Dan was simple, straight forward and stress free. From day one, Dan provided step by step instructions to get my ticket dismissed. He represented me in court, so I did not have to be there. He found the best solution and the affordable one to get my ticket dismissed. Go with Dan; you can't go wrong.
