I am having a problem with a query and it is not returning the results I need.

In the following example (the field 'lev' is NOT providing the matching value for that record (for the 'attempt' that is output)

Hope that is clear enough
SELECT DISTINCT j.name, max(r.attempt) AS highest, j.active, j.jobID, r.lev
FROM (journals j
LEFT JOIN responses r ON r.jobID=j.jobID)
WHERE j.contactID = 220
GROUP BY r.jobID

this should do:
SELECT j.name, r.attempt AS highest, j.active, j.jobID, r.lev
FROM journals j
LEFT JOIN responses r ON r.jobID=j.jobID
   AND r.attempt = ( SELECT MAX(i.attempt) FROM responses i WHERE i.jobID = j.JOBID )
WHERE j.contactID = 220
GROUP BY j.jobID
