    I endorse Attorney James “Jay” Milligan Jr. I first met Jay when I was a prosecutor in the Plymouth County DA's office. As opposing counsel, Attorney Milligan is a formidable opponent but always a professional. Jay was always the first attorney at the courthouse and was always prepared for trial. I now have the privilege of working with Attorney Milligan as a DUI Defense Attorney. Jay’s knowledge of the law and trial practice are unmatched in the field of Massachusetts DUI Defense and RMV Representation. Accordingly he is one of only a few attorneys in Massachusetts to be Board Certified in the field of Drunk Driving Defense. Attorney Milligan provides each client with the proven powerful drunk driving representation that only he can. He is a valued mentor to me and a passionate advocated for his clients. I highly endorse Attorney Jay Milligan.
