JEANNIE THE BEST!!! HIRE HER!
Jeannie is AWESOME! She is kind, explains everything really well, and even took the time to talk with my son about safe driving. She got two tickets vacated for us. Couldn't be happier and so, so glad I called her! I've already told a dozen plus friends that when (not if) their teenagers get tickets...don't pay the ticket (even though that's the appropriate lesson you want to teach your kids). Instead...call Jeannie right away!

Couldn’t have been better
So here I was. Not paying attention. I usually am not a speeder, but I didn’t realize there was a temporary reduction. Wound up with an almost $600 speeding ticket (26 over in a construction zone ) I was completely sure that I would never get out of that. But Jeannie and her team came in clutch and I didn’t have to do anything! I appreciated the pricing transparency also. Thanks again you guys!

Wizard in her Craft
Ms. Mucklestone is a wizard in her craft. She has always come to my rescue with an open-minded approach and a veracity for the best outcome. I'm gotten 2/2 favorable outcomes, for 2 traffic infractions that looked impossible for me to deal with myself. I've referred my family members to her Law Firm and honestly would recommend anyone else to seek her counsel if they are ever need assistance with traffic legalities. Thanks to Jeannie, my traffic record remains clean and thus my insurance premiums remain low. Thank you Jeannie Mucklestone for your due diligence and high professionality.

A total professional
Had a ticket that I felt was unjustified and asked Jeannie to represent me fighting the ticket. Jeannie handled the issue quickly and professionally. Ticket was ultimately dismissed and I give all the credit to Jeannie. I would recommend her services wholeheartedly.

Always win w/ Ms Mucklestone
Couldn’t be happier with Ms Mucklestone’s effectiveness. She is go to attorney all my family and friends regardless if big or small infraction. Cost for her efforts easily less than cost of higher insurance premiums. incredibly professional and communicative. There is no attorney as good as Ms Mucklestone.

Excellent results!
Jeannie answered my email to request her services very late on a Saturday night when I was in a panic about my son potentially getting his license revoked. She went right to work, explained exactly what she was going to do for us. My emails were also answered promptly with succinct and clear answers. And today we celebrate the victory as she went to battle for us in court and the ticket was wiped from his record. Thank you Jeannie Mucklestone

exceeded my expectations
While driving my dying dog to the veterinarian (speeding and not making full stops at stop signs) a cop tried to pull me over but i did not stop. All I could think was i had to save my dog's life. I was charged with reckless driving and obstructing an officer, very serious charges. Jeannie was recommended to me and I couldn't be happier with her representation. My case was dismissed after 8 hours of community service and a level one driving course. The initial offer had a 6 month " good behavior" type stipulation and even that got dropped. I have no criminal record, no points on my license, no loss or suspension of my license, and no fines. Jeannie was very easy to communicate via email (always a quick response), as was the other attorney at her firm, David Buck. Her fee was very reasonable compared to some of the other attorneys I spoke with. I highly recommend her if you ever find yourself in a jam.

Seasoned and communicative lawyer
Jeannie is a seasoned lawyer at defending traffic tickets. She helped me defend my double traffic moving violations, determined wrongly. I have a pretty clean driving record of 20+ years so I was shocked and shaken up to receive them. She and her staff were super communicative throughout the process and responded to any queries that came up. Glad to have worked with her.
