If you have been charged with Reckless Driving or Racing you are facing up to 1 year in jail, a $5,000 fine and mandatory license suspension for 30 (thirty) days. You would also be required by the State of Washington to file SR 22 or high risk insurance and keep it in place for 3 (three) years.
These criminal charges can be issued to you even if you are speeding over 20 (twenty) miles per hour over the speed limit. Reckless driving is defined as driving with willful and or wanton disregard for the safety of persons and/or property.
You can be charged with racing even if you are not speeding. It is merely a mutual comparison of speed between two vehicles. You can be charged with racing whether or not you know who the driver in the other vehicle is. If you are accused of reckless driving or racing, it is important that you have an experienced lawyer on your side.
If you are convicted of these crimes it could subject you to be deported if you are not a United States Citizen.

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.
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!!!!
M S. - Medina, WA Quality legal representation doesn't get any better than Jeannie. She is professional, attentive and handles cases with great care. When it comes to having the best on your side, Jeannie's firm is highly recommended!
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.
Excellent work, Jeannie. Your reputation is certainly well deserved. I will certainly recommend your practice to friends whenever I have the chance. Francisco
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+
