Going through the court process can be very stressful. I hired Michael to handle a criminal and driving infraction I was facing when I had gotten pulled over not realizing my license was suspended. Not only did he answer every question I could have had, he walked me through the entire process and ultimately got one of my charges lowered while getting the others dismissed. When dealing with that kind of situation, it was the most comforting feeling knowing I had someone so reliable and supportive to have my back. I highly recommend Michael for any kind of DUI or driving situation you find yourself in.

I retained Mr. Harbeson to represent my nephew, who is on active duty in the military, in a DUI and minor-in-possession case. The case was complex because not only were both civil and military authorites involved, but also two states because my nephew had an out-of-state license. Mike was calm, helpful, offered a free consultation, cooperated well with all authorities as well as with a concerned uncle and mother--and, most importantly, obtained an excellent outcome for my nephew. As a first offender who was not legally intoxicated, he got a lesson but not a permanent black mark on his record with a reduction in charges to negligent driving. Mike had an excellent combination of calmness, understanding, and firmness. I recommend him with no reservations of any kind.

After getting a DUI I was scared and didn't know where to begin. I was lucky enough that a friend had already gotten a DUI and had Mike's business card. After that he took care of everything, keeping me up to date as my case progressed. He said everything would be OK and it is!
Thank you Mike!

I have known Mr. Harbeson professionally for many years and hold him in the highest regard. His skill, experience, and knowledge as a criminal defense attorney is remarkable. He has an outstanding reputation in the legal community--from prosecutors, judges, and defense attorneys alike and have consulted him on numerous occasions. I highly endorse this lawyer.
