Jeannie, 13 for 13 is amazing. I would not have insurance or would not be able to drive if not for your great work. In fact, my insurance rates just went down in January. Thanks Again. Phil V.

David R. - Kirkland, WA We highly recommend Jeannie without reservation. Quick, professional, concise, stress-free yet affordable. She is batting 1000 for our family with four speeding tickets plus another more complicated infraction. Absolutely worth choosing Jeannie vs paying the ticket and living with the insurance impact for years. Go to her website and follow the instructions. would definitely hire Jeannie again if I had a problem with a traffic ticket in Washington State!
E W. - Seattle, WA I first had the pleasure of meeting Jeannie back in 2005. I watched as she reduced 3 "impossibly hopeless" speeding tickets to minor non-moving infractions. Her rapport with the court was impressive and I logged in the back of my mind that if I needed the services of a traffic lawyer, she would be my first call. Fast forward to earlier this year, 2010. I was given a serious moving violation for a trivial issue in the city of Redmond and immediately called Jeannie. Her offices kept me up to date on the trial process and they were able to reduce the infraction from one that would have negatively affected my record and insurance to something with no long-term implications. This also saved me from taking numerous days off from work to appear in court; well worth her fees alone. All in all, great experience and I would recommend Jeannie's law services to anyone, anytime in WA. Thanks Jeannie!
Nicola R. - Seattle, WA Jeannie has dealt with cases for my family for years, and every time it is a very simple and pleasant process. From filling the information with her, and keeping us updated, it's as seamless as can be. My family and I would recommend her 100% of the time for anyone who needs help for any sort of traffic infraction. Simply the best!
Amanda M. - Bellevue, WA Jeannie Mucklestone is more then an excellent attorney - she is the BEST traffic attorney in our state. She understands the law and has her client's best interest. I hate to think what my family's insurance rates would look like without Jeannie. Jeannie used her knowledge of the law and the process to represent us - and the tickets are not reflected on our driving record. I keep Jeannie's business cards in my wallet, my glove compartment and always have a few extra to pass on to friends and family. The back of her cards give useful information of "what to do" if you are pulled over. Protect your rights. Don't become a victim of the system. And drive carefully!
