Rick was very straight forward and understanding of my situation. He put my mind at ease by letting me know the exact time and cost for his services. In my case, being a multiple DUI offender, Rick ensured me that "My clients do not go to Jail", and he has backed it up a hundred percent of the way. I am really happy with my choice and trust that I have put in his hands.
Rick and his team are very good at communicating/responding with you quickly via email. I was facing very stiff punishment for my (1st and what will be my only) DUI, my BAC was a lot higher than i expected and this made the punishment very severe. I informed Rick of a string of bad things/personal issues happening in my life and he was able to discuss these mitigating factors with the prosecutor and judge and get rid of an Ignition Interlock Device and Public Work Service (trash detail) requirement upon my final court date. Without his empathy and diligent effort upon that last court date, my life would be a lot worse than it is now.
If after reading all of these glowing reviews you are still unsure of whether to hire Rick, maybe it would help to know that he was this lawyer's choice. If I had to choose a doctor to perform important surgery, I would want to know who doctors go to for treatment, so now you know where at least one lawyer went. Lawyers often have a bad reputation for being difficult to get hold of, but Rick was extremely responsive. And more importantly, he did a great job. Although I was charged both with DUI and refusal to submit to a blood test, Rick won the DMV hearing, and the court case was resolved without losing my license for a single day. Thanks again, Rick.
If you, or a loved one, are in need of legal representation due to a DUI charge, I cannot recommend George (Rick) Mueller and the San Diego County DUI Law Center enough. Thorough, experienced, patient, and completely professional. All questions and concerns are answered immediately. In my case, I was facing a possible felony charge, jail time, and monitored probation. In the end, I received a misdemeanor conviction. In addition, my 9 months of mandatory counseling was reduced to 3. And no jail time. The DUI process, both the DMV and Court sides, is lengthy, stressful, and at times disheartening. Mr. Mueller will help you get through it while at the same time providing the best advice and strategy for your particular case. You will not be disappointed.
I am extremely thankful to have found Rick Mueller to represent my son in the DUI he received on a military base. I do not live in the area and had to rely on online searching. The common themes you read about in Rick Mueller’s reviews proved so true with us. Rick has been incredibly knowledgeable, thorough, hard-working, and patient. I have emailed him many detailed questions and he answers them quickly and completely. I also really appreciate that I am always able to work directly with Rick.
He worked very hard for my son and was able to get reduced charges and extremely favorable terms and fines, even with a high BAC. In fact, Rick had a signed plea agreement in hand, but due to court scheduling issues, had to return on another day. He took that opportunity to obtain an even better outcome. He has continued to stay in touch until all the terms have been completed. I highly recommend Rick Mueller. I have absolutely no regrets about hiring him and believe his services are very high quality for a very reasonable fee.
Mr. Mueller did an amazing job you got my case completely thrown out he was prompt returning all my calls called me back within minutes very thorough and unquestionably the best one of the best attorneys I've ever worked with. I would highly recommend
Rick Mueller unquestionably deserves his reputation as the finest DUI lawyer in San Diego County. I am a multiple offense/recent prior/probation violation/high BAC client. I was looking at 60 days in jail or, at best, two years of SCRAM. Rick got me zero days in jail, four days of SCRAM and subsequently got 110 hours of Trash Detail converted to Community Service. Amazing! And all during the process Rick responded to my questions and concerns immediately -including nights, weekends and holidays. If you do not use Rick for your DUI you will only be hurting yourself!
Rick Mueller did an amazing job with my case. He is very affordable and exceed my expectations. Constantly kept in contact with me letting me know what was going on with my case. He has always been quick to respond and very polite. He went above and beyond with getting my case lowered and fines lowered as well. I couldn't ask for anything more from an attorney! Under priced and over delivered!! I will recommend him to everyone in need!
Rick Mueller is everything I wanted in an attorney. Knowledgeable and experienced (28 years). He teaches other attorneys. Trustworthy. He does what he says he’s going to do. Mr. Mueller outlines a step by step event calendar and itemizes responsibilities of client and attorney so you know what to expect. A good negotiator. My fine was minimum and charges reduced. No jail or community service. Rick Mueller provided great support. Rick was always willing to answer questions and concerns- almost immediately. Quick to provide updates. I highly recommend Rick Mueller. He’s an expert who will go to bat for you.
One of my girlfriends told me about Rick. She did extensive research and he was amazing in her DUI case. I trust my girlfriend so I gave him a call. Right away he took action. Without Rick, I would have not known what to do. He gave me step by step instructions every step of the way. He answered all of my questions as soon as I asked him no matter how minor they were. I m so glad to have found him and will recommend him every time. The best part is that I did not have to go to court and feel humiliated, he went for me. It s an embarrassing charge, then being arrested. I never thought I would go through that in my lifetime. I should have known better not to drink and drive but we all do make mistakes. The end result is that Rick had my DUI charge reduced. I am so grateful.
