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.

W B. - Bothell, WA The very best! Jeannie and her staff are marvelous! Next time an officer stops you for enjoying great weather and having a lead foot call Jeannie! Her team is sympathetic, efficient and pleasant to deal with. They are top notch! I've used her service twice and have not been disappointed.
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
Gracian C. - Gig Harbor, WA Jeannie Mucklestone is incredible! I personally am on thin ice with my employer as far as citations go and got incredible service from Jeannie. Her response time was awesome especially on a weekend!!! I am so thankful... I WOULD RECOMMEND HER FOR ANYONE DEALING WITH DRIVING VIOLATIONS!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
katie s. - Issaquah, WA My son got a speeding ticket in Bellevue (beware, those of you who get off I-90 at Lakemont). He was barely merged on to Lakemont where the speed limit is deceiving at 30 mph, and got caught on radar. Jeannie fought the ticket somehow and the very next day after the court date, sent a letter explaining the ticket was completely dropped and his insurance wouldn't be affected whatsoever. Her track record is amazing, she's professional, and we owe her a great deal of gratitude. Thank you Jeannie!!!!
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.
