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.

Amanda M. - Bellevue, WA Jeannie Mucklestone is more then an excellent attorney - she is the BEST traffic attorney in our state. She understands the law and has her client's best interest. I hate to think what my family's insurance rates would look like without Jeannie. Jeannie used her knowledge of the law and the process to represent us - and the tickets are not reflected on our driving record. I keep Jeannie's business cards in my wallet, my glove compartment and always have a few extra to pass on to friends and family. The back of her cards give useful information of "what to do" if you are pulled over. Protect your rights. Don't become a victim of the system. And drive carefully!
I got a speeding ticket in Ritzville when on my way to Montana with my family. My sister Jackie (who is a death penalty lawyer) recommended Jeannie Mucklestone. I hired Jeannie. Today I received a letter in the mail from Jeannie notifying me that the matter was dismissed upon her motion to suppress. I was thoroughly impressed with Jeannie and her office. Very reasonable fees. I'd recommend her in a heartbeat. Don't do it on your own, it will be more expensive. Good luck. John W. Attorney at Law
ANDREW C. - Seattle, WA Jeannie's law firm took care of a speeding ticket written by the WSP, north of Everett, on I-5. I was chosen out of a crowd, profiled, then written a ticket, for speeding. I have a CDL, and this is a major infraction for me. Her firm kept me informed of the process and called me immediately when the charges were dismissed. I felt confident throughout the process, but still, it is a crap shoot, so you have to have confidence in your choice of lawyers. Jeannie's firm gave me total confidence in their capabilities and did what they say that could do: protect me from the lawlessness of the WSP and their indiscriminate abuse of power on the highways. I was picked out of a crowd of vehicles and chosen to be the victim by my address on my license. Before the officer even told me of my infraction, he had run my plates and gotten my driving record and knew of my address and driving record and the fact that I had a CDL. Given the distance from the court, it was statistically a better ticket to write. Don't ever let the law push you around. Get an attorney and protect yourself, your insurance and your driving record.
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!
Brad B. - Kent, WA Jeannie Mucklestone is flat-out the best period. I have used Jeannie on many occasions over the past few years and her record is PERFECT in defending me. Her record in defending me, and personal friends i have recommended to her, is 14-0. I just received another favorable verdict letter from her today and in looking back in my file, her representation fee has not increased since the first time I hired her in November 2001! In one of my speeding ticket cases, she showed up for the case, but requested a new court date so that she might get a more favorable judge to hea the case. Most people I'm sure would have kept the original date and i would have been stuck with the verdict that was handed down. Jeannie actually took the time to go back to court a second time on my behalf and it didnt cost me anything additional. She goes above and beyond and I could not be more pleased with her services. Thank you Jeannie (aka "The Impenatrable Shield") Brad B.
Scott J. - Sammamish, WA Jeannie is remarkable. I have held off using her services but I got a ticket I didn't think was fair and she took care of it. Excellent service, reasonable price. I will use her again.
