Rick Mueller is a fantastic DUI lawyer. I was stopped for a routine speeding ticket going 9mph over the speed limit as I was driving through San Diego on my way to New Mexico, driving through the night. The officer asked if I had anything to drink, probably because it was 1:30am. I had previously stopped and had dinner with friends and had a couple of beers with my dinner, but it was several hours earlier. Anyway I was honest and said that I had 2 beers much earlier in the evening. That was enough for him to pull me out of my car and go through the process of arresting me for DUI. My BAC turned out to be .06, less than the legal limit of .08, but this was my 2nd arrest for DUI and I was still on probation for the 1st one. (Unfortunately I deserved the first DUI but had been very careful not to drink and drive since then.) Being on probation I was not allowed to have any measurable amount of alcohol in my system, so they put me in jail for the night. I called my previous lawyer in northern CA and he recommended Rick. I am so glad he did. Rick is very responsive, very efficient, his fee is very reasonable, and he really knows how to defend anyone being arrested for DUI. He was able to negotiate a plea bargain that got the DA to drop the DUI charge in exchange for a reckless driving - alcohol related charge. So, I didn't have to go to jail, or be put on trash detail, or public work program, or community service, or volunteer work. I didn't get a 2-year suspension of my driver license that usually happens from a DUI conviction, nor have my Vehicle Impounded or be required to install an Ignition Interlock Device. My fine was less than half of the normal $2539+ DUI fine. I did have to pay a fine and take the 12-hour education class, but considering what could have happened I felt that he got me a great deal. Thanks Rick, for being the best lawyer I could have had.
