Michael John Tario is thought of by many as being one of Washington State’s most experienced and successful trial lawyers.  He has been practicing law for 40 years and has 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 on plaintiff personal injury in 2006.

During his career, Mr. Tario has successfully represented over 2,000 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 he/she handles, 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 since 1979.


For almost four decades, Tario & Associates, P.S. has provided personal injury, truck, motorcycle and car accident, pedestrian injury, medical malpractice, wrongful death, family law and bankruptcy counsel to thousands of clients in Bellingham and throughout Whatcom, Skagit, Island and Snohomish counties. We care about your needs.

We promise to carefully listen to you and treat you with dignity and respect while fighting for justice on your behalf so you can get back to living your life.  Tario 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.

In addition to monetary compensation, an injury lawsuit is a way to hold the responsible party accountable for their negligence.  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 never stop fighting for you; we are the Bellingham personal injury lawyer you want on your side!
