Read What Customers Say About Michael

Michael helped me with a DUI charge and was able to get it reduced to the best-case scenario. The situation turned out exactly like he presumed it would on our initial phone consultation. Michael answered any and all questions I had and communicated very clearly with me what was happening through the whole process. And to top it all off, he was the best price around. I couldn’t be happier with hiring Michael and would recommend him to anyone in need of an attorney

“Everyone needs a good attorney. Mike is everything we needed and he met our needs at very reasonable rates. I happen to drive in a manor that lands me tickets once and a while and Mike makes them go away pretty darn painlessly. He helped us with tickets and property / land questions”

Brent Cochran –  5 Stars on Google My Business

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

Stacy – 5 Stars on avvo.com

“Michael Harbeson represented my son in a very sensitive case that lasted 2.5 years. During this time I believe he went above and beyond what anyone should ever reasonably expect. My son was 12  at the time and Mike was very professional and compassionate with my son. I could say so much more but this review is already getting pretty long so to sum it up I would recommend Michael Harbeson to anyone he is a great lawyer and an amazing person. TY Mike and your team”

Jerry Snyder – 5 Stars on Google My Business

“Micheal Harbeson is the best in the business, he helped us through a very lengthy legal process with professionalism, guidance and so much patience! He really cared more about my husband getting his license back than he did about payment. He is knowledgeable and kind, things you don’t usually see in an attorney! He will handle your case in an efficient, professional manner. He’s an amazing person and a wonderful attorney

Mary Rowlands – 5 Stars on Google My Business

I have recommended Michael Harbeson to my friends and family for years now. Every time I have had a speeding ticket or hear of a friend who received a DUI I call Michael. He always keeps me informed on where the case stands and delivers results. I highly recommend this lawyer.

Brett – 5 Stars on avvo.com

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!
