★★★★★ Katie is a miracle worker! She reduced my fines and criminal charge without me having to set foot in the court room! While traveling to Seattle last November, I was pulled over and received an excessive fine along with a criminal charge. After some history of criminal and traffic citations, at first I didn’t think it was worth fighting the charges and I had accepted I would just have to pay the hefty fine, right before the holidays. It wasn’t worth it to have to drive all the way back to court in Seattle, to not have a favorable result. With my driving history, I was sure that would be the case. I contacted Katie on the chance that maybe something could be done with my ticket. Right away she reassured me and gave me some hope. In a surprisingly short amount of time, Katie was able to significantly reduce my charges and my fine, without me ever having to go to court. That to me, was a miracle!

★★★★★ Was caught speeding on a test drive from a used car lot with no attendee on the drive.
Ticket was very messy, had chosen to pay 2 tickets I had recently gotten in 2017. Which made pleading to the cop unwilling to forgo a ticket even in the odd circumstances.
Anyways Katie knocked it out the park got the ticket switched to a tabs violation from speeding 84 in a 60. Given the circumstances, I’m impressed also price point for representation was fair.
Great job Katie!
Excellent and quick work.
