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.

Andrew T. - Seattle, WA Sometimes we make bad choices, as in my Case. With the amount of alcohol in my system I clearly should not have been driving at the time I was pulled over. I am an adult, I admit my faults. If you are unfortunate enough to make the same mistake I made, the best decision you can make is to hire Jeannie P Mucklestone ASAP. I was informed along the way exactly what to expect. After several court appearances my case was eventually dropped to a Reckless Driving offense, partly, I'm sure because it was a first offense and I have no record of anything, but mostly because of the firms relationships with the Courts. She and her staff have an excellent reputation and I believe it helps when confronting a Judge. I do not expect to repeat my bad choice. But I would highly recommend her if you find yourself in my position, and I would not hesitate to use her for any further traffic infraction
Dan I. - Sammamish, WA After significant due diligence and confirmation through other attorney references in other unrelated practices and by speaking with a childhood friend of Jeannie, I can say without reservation that Jeannie Mucklestone is a best in class attorney and problem solver for our traffic related issues. In mid 2011, a family member received two citations with 2 speeding violations and two other violations in less than 4 days apart in the Issaquah/Sammamish areas. We were fairly convinced these two citations with multiple violations would be very difficult to overcome even with the very best of legal representation. We were not only pleasantly surprised but in fact professionally impressed with the very positive outcome but also the top to bottom professionalism provided by Jeannie and her colleagues. Both citations were dismissed in their entirety and no one from our family had to attend any court proceedings. More to the point, Jeannie personally took her time outside of court room proceeding hours to point by point walk us through her process in managing our legal case and Jeannie won our case in its entirety .... brillliant performance and execution on her part. I personally work with land use, business, real estate, construction and litigation attorneys in my business practice and Jeannie is a best in class, demonstrated rock star in her legal practice and my family and I endorse her wholeheartedly without reproach. Feel free to contact Jeannie to arrange to speak with me personally if you need further verification. You need look no further as Jeannie is an exceptional talent.
I received your notice indicating that you and your team had successfully challenged my infraction in court. You made what could have been a painful and expensive experience a complete non-issue where I was able to conduct my life without any form of interruption. I will continue - without hesitation - to recommend you as the only champion of drivers at odds with the courts in Washington State. Best regards Jon
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!
Your prompt, courteous attention to our case and crisp explanations to our questions made working with you a pleasure. I would highly recommend your services to friends and family. -M.
Chris G. - Bothell, WA Very pleased with the overall experience working with Jeannie. Staff was very professional, results were as hoped for. Will recommend highly to friends.
