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.

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!
Anthony D. - Seattle, WA BEST Received a speeding ticket, contacted Jeannie P. Mucklestone, paid the fee, speeding ticket gone. Its just that simple. Now my perfect driving record will stay that way. Thanks a ton!
John M. - Seattle, WA Outstanding. Highest possible recommendation. Jeannie Mucklestone took care of my speeding ticket efficiently and with a great outcome: dismissed.
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.
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!
Andrew T. - Seattle, WA Sometimes we make bad choices, as in my Case. With the amount of alcohol in my system I clearly should not have been driving at the time I was pulled over. I am an adult, I admit my faults. If you are unfortunate enough to make the same mistake I made, the best decision you can make is to hire Jeannie P Mucklestone ASAP. I was informed along the way exactly what to expect. After several court appearances my case was eventually dropped to a Reckless Driving offense, partly, I'm sure because it was a first offense and I have no record of anything, but mostly because of the firms relationships with the Courts. She and her staff have an excellent reputation and I believe it helps when confronting a Judge. I do not expect to repeat my bad choice. But I would highly recommend her if you find yourself in my position, and I would not hesitate to use her for any further traffic infraction
