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.

I just wanted to write you a brief email regarding the HIT & RUN/DUI/Negligent driving case that you recently represented me in.
I wanted to express my sincerest appreciation and gratitude for the work that you did while representing me. Not only did you help make a very stressful and concerning period of time less stressful and chaotic, you also helped offer me some peace of mind and reassurance throughout the course of the case that every minor detail was being taken care of and handled in the appropriate and necessary way. Perhaps more important, you and your talented and knowledgeable firm of attorneys helped achieve a very favorable outcome in the case that I did not even believe to be a possibility because of your work ethic, commitment to excellence, and dedication to your clients.
I am so fortunate and thankful to have been represented by you, and just wanted to let you know how appreciative I am of all the time and hard work you put in.
Thank you so much for everything, and I know that if I ever know of a friend or family member that finds themselves in a similar set of circumstances to the ones that I was facing, the first person I will refer them to will be you. Thanks again,
Cameron M. - Duvall, WA Amazing service, 2/2 in my case. Easiest process ever. I will be back.
Thank you so much for the FANTASTIC job you did with representing me! I will recommend you highly to anyone needing such assistance. Thank you again - Joshua
Andrew B. - Bellevue, WA I am close friends with a DA in Issaquah, after getting a ticket that would affect a prior deferment and my insurance rates I decided to ask for legal help. After talking to my friend who works as a DA she said that by far the best lawyer to represent me for traffic in the area is Jeannie P Mucklestone. Later that week I contacted her and told her staff the story and they thought it was ironic because my friend, the DA, has often times been on the opposite side of the court room from Ms. Mucklestone and although they are not friends outside the courtroom they have earned a lot of respect for each other. Well Jeanie Mucklestone's staff were prompt and efficient and I got out of the ticket no problem and was very pleased at their ability to effectively and efficiently handle my situation.
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+
Thank you for the fine work you do! You are the best and I will never forget you! Thank you so much. Henry
