Bellingham, Washington accident & injury law firm

  • Accident & Injury
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Automobile Accidents
  • Wrongful Death
  • Admiralty & Maritime law
  • Family Law
  • Bankruptcy

Since 1979 we have represented over 3,000 injury victims in Whatcom, Skagit, Island & Snohomish counties. We never stop fighting for you!

Our personal injury attorneys fight for damages through negotiation with insurance companies and personal injury lawsuits to compensate you for medical expenses, disability, lost wages, pain and suffering and more. We always strive to solve cases out of court but when necessary you can count on our experience and knowledge to fully represent you in court.
We represent our personal injury clients on a contingency fee basis and our firm advances many out-of-pocket costs on their behalf. When cases are concluded with a monetary settlement, our firm is repaid for the out-of-pocket costs we have advanced from the proceeds of a settlement or judge or jury verdict.

Michael J., Tario

Michael John Tario is one of the most highly respected and experienced practicing personal injury attorneys in Washington State. He opened his practice more than four decades ago and has earned the respect of his peers and the industry as exemplified by his many awards and high ratings. Through most of his career, Mr. Tario practiced plaintiff personal injury and criminal defense but re-focused as a personal injury lawyer in 2006.

During his career, Mr. Tario has successfully represented over 3,000 clients. He has negotiated well over 2,500 favorable out-of-court settlements, but where settlement was not possible, he has taken hundreds of cases to trial; fighting hard to protect the rights and interests of his clients. Michael is known for his hard fighting tenacity, his determination, and his commitment to try to do everything possible (within the bounds of the law) to give his clients “top notch” representation. While no attorney can win every case they handle, Mr. Tario’s win/loss record speaks for itself. His advertised claim of “proven record of success” is based upon the results obtained in and out of court in over 40 years in practice.
