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.

Chris H. - Seattle, WA Jeannie has been my counsel for 10+ years. By far the best traffic law attorney in the state! Out of 8 citations (yes I have a lead foot), she has had nearly all dismissed for one reason or another. Mucklesone dominates!
D'Arcy S. - Mercer Island, WA Have used Jeannie twice for traffic infractions. Great representation and excellent outcomes both times. It was easy to engage her services, she did a good job explaining the process and setting my expectations, and she provided timely communication. You get what you pay for and I've paid for it twice. When I next need the services of a traffic lawyer, I'll be hiring Ms. Mucklestone again. Read her reviews here and on http://Avvo.com. Everyone I know recommends Jeannie, which is how I found her in the first place.
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,
R C. - Seattle, WA Jeannie just worked her courtroom magic and my ticket was dismissed. This is the second time that Jeannie has obtained a dismissal for me for a traffic ticket. BTW-I was tracking my recent hearing on the Seattle Municipal website. Jeannie appeared for six people on the day of my hearing. Five of the cases were DISMISSED and one case continued until later in the year. Pretty great track record!
Thx Jeannie--u rank up there among the most reliable women in my life! ;) G
