I hired Michael for a DUI charge back 2010 and again in 2016 for charges including DUI, hit and run and failure to obey. When I initially met with him in 2010 he was nothing but understanding and professional and I knew I had made the right choice for my attorney. As my case continued I felt as though he treated my case as a top priority. Every time I was in court he was treated with respect in the courtroom as if he was someone that will not stop until he was satisfied with the results. He always carries himself professionally and respectfully and seems to have connections that I don't think many legal professionals have. He was able to reduce my first DUI charge down to a reckless endangerment without any jail time! When I got myself into a worse predicament in July 2016 I contacted Michael immediately. This incident involved a hit and run with a police vehicle and although i may not have been at fault I did not stop when he tried to pull me over. I was taken to jail that night and spent the next three days there. The court asked for $8000 bail but by having Michael represent me i was released with no bail required. Over the next few months Michael worked diligently to uncover facts that would work in my favor as his client. This case could have ruined my life. After all said and done he was able to get all three charges reduced. My DUI charge was reduced to a reckless driving, my hit and run to an attended vehicle (which involved a police vehicle at the airport) was reduced to a hit and run of an unattended vehicle and my failure to obey was reduced to driving on suspended in the 3rd degree. Also, he was able to get me seven days of work crew instead of serving seven days in jail. I have no idea how he made this happen for me but I will be forever grateful for his help through all of this. Michael is a true professional and a master at his craft. I would recommend him to anybody!! I have complete confidence in his ability as an attorney and know that he will not back down until justice is served.

My daughter was charged with Vehicular homicide and was looking at a plea of 6.5 year. We had another attorney who gave up on us and told us there was no way to reduce it. Mike came in at the tail end and was able to drop my daughters sentence by YEARS. I really believe he was a gift from God. He is the most outstanding, professional, diligent, and caring Attorney you will ever meet. I STRONGLY recommend him.

I originally hired Beckwith Law for a DUI-refusal. The best deal they could get me was a DUI conviction with 1 day in jail, even though I have no previous criminal record or any traffic citations. A DUI conviction would've ruined my career. I hired Mike, and he assured me he could do better. He genuinely cares about me and my case and that makes all the difference. After much work on his part, I plead guilty to reckless driving with 30 days of EHM. No DUI conviction!!! I'm very thankful for him and would recommend him to anyone who deserves a great defense.

I had gone off of the road after the Seahawks first preseason game last year. I was not injured at all and there was no damage done to my car, but while I was waiting for the tow truck a cop came by and that was that. I was booked for a DUI. I had never had anything like this happen before and needless to say I was very scared about what could happen. I found out about Mike from one of my fraternity brothers who was also a lawyer. Mike is an incredible lawyer, and MUCH MUCH more affordable than some of the other ones I spoke with. When my parents and I met with Mike he was very thorough, BUT he never once looked at me or acted like I was automatically guilty. He was always honest about my chances and I was ready to accept my punishment. ALSO, NEVER think that this will be a quick process. It takes a long time. I was arrested for DUI in August of last year and my last day in court was last Wednesday, 04/27/2016. Almost a WHOLE year later. You have to spend a lot of time at the courthouse, and most of those times will be just to extend the process longer. BUT, this is all part of the process. I at times never trusted the overall legal system, but one person I never lost ANY trust in was Mike. He is so knowledgeable and understands how to maneuver through the process and the legal system. Because of some of the specifics of my case, Mike was able to get me off for the DUI and I accepted a plea for Reckless Driving. These last 9 months have been some of the most difficult of my whole life, but Mike was there each step of the way, and his legal team was always there to answer any questions that I had. NO ONE would EVER want to be in this situation, however, if I had not had Mike as my lawyer I could have spent a LOT more and my outcome could have been a lot worse. I put ALL of my support behind Mike and would recommend him to anyone who finds themselves in this kind of situation. You still might not get the outcome you would hope for, but with a Mikes team behind you, you have the best shot you could have.

I'm a CDL driver, and got pulled over for speeding in my personal vehicle and got a DUI.. My whole life was my job, I am the sole provider of my family. I had A LOT to lose. Michael Frans was straight up and honest about my odds. Plus his staff is awesome! They were on the ball with everything. Even the people at the alcohol facilities I went to for classes loved his assistant, and how quick she was with the paperwork. Mike took my case personally, and fought hard for me. And we won the DOL hearing!!! Which is a %15 chance to win on average. This guy is no baby faced lawyer. He is a beast in court and can hold his own very well. Very clear and to to point, if there is anything loose in the paperwork he will find it. I will refer this guy to anyone, till the day I die. thank you Mike for saving my life and career!! Go with Mike you won't regret it!! :D

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.
