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.

Rick Mueller is the best dui attorney out there. Retain him and pay him, he is well worth it. The very first day I emailed him, he replied right away. since than he became my friend in a sense. I never met him , but became very close to him. he is a great guy at heart. Rick Mueller will take care of you. He is very honest , cheerful guy. I promise he will not let you down. Rick Mueller got me a deal that was unheard of! throughout the process of the court dates , Rick would calm me down when I was real stressed out and answered all my questions ASAP. Everybody that heard my 3rd dui story couldn't believe the outcome of it!I did not have my license suspended, I did not have to complete an expensive DUI alcohol program, I did not have to pay a high fine, and I did not feel like I was treated like a criminal. if you want a good result , go to rick Mueller! He is a very hard worker and is determined. I love rick Mueller! 5 stars!

When deciding on a lawyer for my Hit and Run, DUI case it was between two people, one of them being Rick. As I mulled it over there really was no question who I wanted to go with. Rick at first came off as short and hurried, but I would soon learn that wasn't the case. I came to learn that he is just a nitty-gritty kind of guy, someone who just wants to get down to the meat and potatoes. He is concise because he is not one to give you any false hope, he tells you how it is. My case was looking very bleak, I was above twice the legal limit and was also involved in a hit and run. Rick made me feel optimistic while explaining what the worst-case scenarios may be. I knew through reviews and his background that he was a good lawyer, but after my case I don't think there is anyone else I would go with. Rick got me the best possible outcome, one that I couldn't see coming. I was up against a lot. I couldn't have been happier with my choice and would recommend him to anyone dealing with a DUI hands down.

I know looking for a lawyer is stressful, giving a guy a large amount of money you don't know to be your best friend is very hard to do. Rick did exactly what i needed. i got my first traffic violations , witch happened to be a DUI( blood work at .10), on a suspended license(that i had no idea was suspended for two years) and he got me a reckless driving. He is definitely a brass tax guy, he says it how it is witch is awesome, and he is understanding and well versed when explaining procedures, no matter how many times you ask him. My family is ever indebted to him , I recommend Rick Mueller for anyone who needs an attorney for any traffic alcohol related incidences

As a parent I got that terrible 2AM call from may daughter-Arrested for a DUI- as a minor. Do not go any further in your search. After doing some research and phone interviews, Rick quickly put us at ease with his knowledge he was willing to share..even before we hired him. Rick assisted us in how to handle the DMV, how to get a restricted license and handled all the court proceedings without ever having to go to court. This is a nightmare to go through with a DUI and worse if you are a minor.. Rick was understanding and compassionate. He was always available via email. He went above and beyond to assist us with other issues outside of the legal system that was impacted by this incident. He got our daughter and family through all of this with the best possible outcome. NO COMMUNITY SERVICE/VOLUNTEERING.. As great as Rick was/is, I hope we never need his services again...This is one of those nightmares a parent will never forget, at least Rick was able to assist with the reality of it.

After getting charged with a DUI, I didn't know how to handle it and was more than a little scared. That disappeared after getting in touch with Rick. After a lot of online research I saw that he had a great reputation and top tier experience. And a few minutes on the phone, I knew he was someone I could trust.
From the get-go he took charge and made me well aware of what was going on before the courts did and responded to all my questions on the day I asked them. Another huge help for me was his willingness to allow me to pay in installments, which was big.
With his help we we're able to get a great deal given the facts of the case, and he fought for me every step of the way. I'd definitely recommend Rick to anyone in need of legal help in their DUI matters.

I was charged with DUI after stopping at a military check point. It was the first time anything like this has happened to me and I didn’t know what to do. I started to search for information and came across Rick Mueller. After reading many reviews, especially the ones dealing with DUI on military bases, I decided to contact him. He responded right away with all the information I needed and quickly put my worries to rest. His cost was very reasonable and he answered every question I had, big or small, any time of day. I never had to go to court Rick handled everything and got me a great plea bargain. Because I was on a military base and contacted Rick first I have no insurance or licenses issues. It’s almost like it never happened. I would recommend Rick to anyone with a DUI and would call him immediately if I ever had the misfortune getting one again. Thanks Rick!
