If you have been arrested for Driving Under the Influence (DUI/DWI) or have received a citation for DUI in Washington State and you need DUI defense, you are facing one of the most serious traffic offenses that can be handled in District or Municipal Courts. If your BAC level is .08 or greater, you are facing two cases that you must defend: an administrative and a civil case in which the Department of Licensing seeks to suspend or revoke your licnese, and a criminal case in which you are subject to mandatory jail time (even for a first offense) for u p to one year, a fine up to $5,000, license suspension, SR 22 (high risk) insurance for 3 years, ignition interlock installed on your vehicle, you could be subject to deportation if you are not a United States Citizen as well as other mandatory penalties.
A DUI conviction cannot be expunged in the future.
You can be charged with DUI even if you are BELOW .08. The law provides that you cannot drive a motor vehicle if you are affected by drugs or alcohol. You can even be charged for DUI if you are driving after taking your prescribed medication by your own doctor. If you are a minor you can be charged with DUI if you have a BAC level of .02 or greater. Having the right lawyer is critical.

Chris T. - Lynnwood, WA I was heading south on I-5 Federal Way when I was stopped for doing 78mph in a 60mph zone. Needless to say, it was an expensive ticket. I searched AVVO and read through the reviews. Surprisingly, Jeannie Mucklestone had a ton of good reviews. I selected Jeannie solely on these reviews. I emailed her, then hired her. I am completely satisfied with the results. She was able to get my infraction dismissed!! I did not have to go to court. She kept me informed and was timely in her response. I am so pleased with the outcome...it's as if I never happened. Granted I had to pay, but it sure beats having my insurance increase. I would definitely contact her again, if I ever needed to (hopefully this will not be the case). that. anyhow - jeannie rocks. hire her.
Todd L. - Seattle, WA Jeannie took my ticket and made it go away. That was exactly what she said she would do and it cost exactly what she said it would cost. That's good service and I'm happy. Thank you Jeannie!
Nicola R. - Seattle, WA Jeannie has dealt with cases for my family for years, and every time it is a very simple and pleasant process. From filling the information with her, and keeping us updated, it's as seamless as can be. My family and I would recommend her 100% of the time for anyone who needs help for any sort of traffic infraction. Simply the best!
David N. - Seattle, WA Jeannie and her crew deliver - i've had her and her staff defend a number of tickets for me - and they work their magic every time. totally worth the money versus paying the ticket, suffering the insurance company bump in your premiums. she came highly recommended and i now know why. she even defended me in Lewis county - minding my own business, excited to be going skiing at white pass for a change - nailed by the trooper trap on the way up. what a scam. kinda like a red light camera only different. just raising money on the backs of the population one way or another. be careful if you go up there... i probably won't again. thanks to washington's finest. maybe they just want less of us up there. seems kinda silly to chase potential "tourist" revenue away with nonsense like that. anyhow - jeannie rocks. hire her.
E W. - Seattle, WA I first had the pleasure of meeting Jeannie back in 2005. I watched as she reduced 3 "impossibly hopeless" speeding tickets to minor non-moving infractions. Her rapport with the court was impressive and I logged in the back of my mind that if I needed the services of a traffic lawyer, she would be my first call. Fast forward to earlier this year, 2010. I was given a serious moving violation for a trivial issue in the city of Redmond and immediately called Jeannie. Her offices kept me up to date on the trial process and they were able to reduce the infraction from one that would have negatively affected my record and insurance to something with no long-term implications. This also saved me from taking numerous days off from work to appear in court; well worth her fees alone. All in all, great experience and I would recommend Jeannie's law services to anyone, anytime in WA. Thanks Jeannie!
Redmond, WA I used Jeannie for a speeding ticket many years ago, and had a great experience. Quick, simple, and gone! Unfortunately, I was arrested for DUI last May and needed representation. It was my first time, so I did research and talked with 3 lawyers, Jeannie being one of them. She spent quite a bit of time talking to me and explaining things, she offered a fair rate for her services, and I felt the most comfortable with her. Throughout the process she kept in touch via e-mail and phone, if necessary, and last week we finally resolved the case. I was not convicted of DUI, only of neg driving 1, the DOL case was dismissed, and I couldn't be happier. Jeannie is the type of seasoned professional you want representing you in one of these cases. It's an awful experience, but she made it much more tolerable. A+
