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.

Robert L. - Puyallup, WA Jeannie has represented members of my family and I on traffic infractions on numerous occasions. In each and every infraction she won for us and the infractions were dismissed. I have employed other attorneys in the past and I have to say that none of these attorneys comes close to her professionalism, knowledge of the law, and track record as an advocate. Jeannie is simply the best!
Outstanding DUI Defense
She always kept me informed.
I recommend Jeannie Mucklestone. She was trustworthy, responsive and knowledgeable. I used Jeannie 1-6 months ago.Jeannie handled my DUI / DWI matter. I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.
Jeannie and her team did a excellent job .... they saved my bacon. They were professional and kept me 100% informed. It was a pleasure considering the circumstances to have my representation by Jeannie and her team. I would recommend them 1000% to anyone needing legal help with the State and DOL. Not once did they make me feel like I had done something stupid or like a criminal. -Bill
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,
Doug M. - Seattle, WA Case Dismissed! I met Jeannie literally five minutes before my Contested Hearing after overhearing her converse with the Prosecution. I approached her to inquire about her fee and my case. She reviewed it and quickly returned stating she could get it dismissed. I understand legal issues can be a 50/50 outcome but her demeanor and confident response convinced me. We worked out a deal right there on the spot and thirty minutes later my driving infraction was dismissed.
Philippe G. - Seattle, WA Great attorney who helped me get rid of a speeding ticket in Eastern Washington. Excellent communication.
Craig U. - Bellevue, WA Jeannie Mucklestone is great. Her office makes it so easy to submit your infraction and her results have been fantastic. I have hired Jeannie over several years and she has never failed to resolve the matter in my favor. Recently i had two matters concurrently and Jeannie gave me a 10% discount on both and proceeded to resolve both within three or four weeks. I really don't know what more you can ask for in an attorney. Thx, Craig
