First some background. Until I worked with Gary, I had never found myself needing legal counsel. The few tickets I received in the past were for minor infractions, so I always just sucked it up, paid the fine and took the defensive driving course. That all changed when I got hit with a 6 point speeding ticket on the LIE. I had the misfortune of running into an officer who was all business: he displayed no sympathy and shoved a ticket in my hand within just a few minutes of getting pulled over. I knew what I was up against if I plead guilty: several hundred bucks for the ticket PLUS a $200 driver responsibility assessment PLUS a sizable increase in my insurance premium. Screw that! ;-) I decided to find myself a good lawyer.
I spoke with 5 different lawyers throughout Long Island and Gary gave me the most optimistic prognosis: he would either get the ticket dismissed entirely or have it reduced to ZERO points and a "parking ticket." Whoa, that sounded amazing, but I my healthy skepticism left me unconvinced. I went ahead and googled him and the other lawyers. Then I came upon his reviews on this site. After carefully looking over Gary's 100+ glowing reviews I was like, no way could he be /that/ good, could he? It turns out that he really was!
From day one, he was friendly, professional, quick to respond to my questions and always right to the point. He kept me informed of the progress of my case and finally called me one day to announce the good news. He was able to get my ticket completely thrown out in court. DISMISSED! Woohoo! I thanked him BIG then for the awesome work he did--and am now extending my thanks further by sharing my subjective and very positive experience working with Gary Stuart Miller. He kicked some serious butt on my case!

I went to Mr. Miller to help me with some tickets I received for making a poor decision, I needed help. Gary was very calm and well spoken, listened attentively and then came to a solution swiftly when we had our first consult. I felt confident from the start that he was someone who cared and had the knowledge to help , which instantly set my heart and mind at ease. Each time we went to court he was quick to make the best solution possible to settle my matter. I cannot say enough that without Gary I would not be driving today, he got my tickets dropped and plead to a place where I walked out with a small fine. He was the best at his craft and I would and will recommend him to anyone that may need help. I fully endorse Mr. Miller for your choice as a lawyer who has his clients best interest priority number 1 without any character judgement for the legal help you may need.

I have dealt with a few lawyers in my life and Gary Miller was by far the most professional, responsive, and easy to work with. I received a fairly large number of traffic tickets in both Nassau and Suffolk county over the past few years. Just looking at all of them made me dizzy. Finally, it got to the point that I was forced to deal with them all or I would start to face some serious consequences. After some searching on the internet I came across Mr. Miller and scheduled an initial consultation. Mr. Miller looked over my records and assured me that he would be able to take care of everything. He personally represented me in Suffolk county and arranged for some colleagues of his to represent me in Nassau who were equally pleasant to deal with. He remained the point of contact throughout the entire process and was always available if I had any questions or concerns. He called me the night before each court appearance and let me know what to expect and things always went exactly as he said they would. To make a long story short, I received a favorable outcome in both cases. When concluding the Suffolk case, the judge even commented to me that my lawyer did a great job with my case which I would imagine does not happen every day. Again, Mr. Miller was extremely professional and a pleasure to deal with. I would recommend him to anyone seeking an attorney. His fees were very reasonable and he made the entire process almost painless, which I've learned, when it comes the legal system is not always the case.

I hired Gary to defend me on a speeding ticket that I received in September 2013. It was not until around December that I found out that I had to appear in Suffolk County Traffic Court and that my plea was not acceptable via mail. I did have previous tickets from about 3 years ago already on my driving record and the day I got my ticket it was just wrong place wrong time. The moment I contacted Gary, he kept me informed and immediately began work on my case. I could have lost my license but Gary was able to get my ticket reduced from speeding 80 in a 55 that carries 6 points to a tail gaiting ticket with 0 points!!! Now at the end of year my previous points come off and my record will be at 0 points again. If it were not for Gary I could have lost my license which could have impacted my employment. Now I drive more carefully and cruise control is my best friend...especially on Sunrise Hwy. Gary, Thank you so much for taking me on so quickly and getting my issue resolved. I greatly appreciated everything you have done for me.

No fuss, no muss just gets the job done in the best way for his client. I have hired many lawyers over the years and recommend Gary wholeheartedly. He is the best and I am so grateful to my friend who luckily for me recommended Gary. (She also had a traffic ticket problem which Gary solved) I am very happy with the result - my ticket was dismissed. Many thanks again Gary. I am telling everyone how lucky I am and giving them your phone number!

Thanks to Gary I have a clean driving record with no points. Gary was able to plea my speeding ticket to a less serious, no points, parking infraction.

Attorney Gary Miller is the real deal. I read reviews for Mr. Miller on this site & they were impressive, though I admit sometimes I can be a little skeptical of online reviews, but...so many positive reviews have to have some truth to them, so I gave his office a call & left a message. Well I can now tell you for sure these positive reviews are 100% authentic and warranted. I received a call back from Mr. Miller in less than 2 hours. Explained my situation; had 4 tickets equaling 12 points. Mr. Miller told me how he thought he could help me (which sounded good) and what my expected fines would likely be. His fee was reasonable, so I hired him on the spot. The afternoon of the second day after I had called him, Mr. Miller called me and let me know he'd already addressed my tickets with the court. In fact, the outcome was even better than what he'd originally projected, because he was able to get one of my tickets completely dismissed! The others were reduced to no points, and my overall fees were less because he was able to get that one ticket dismissed. Honestly, I am more than pleased with this outcome, and I told Mr. Miller I would recommend him to all my friends and family - to anyone - and I would not hesitate to call him up to help me again in the future. If you're on the fence - don't be - give Mr. Miller a call - you won't be sorry - like I said, he is the real deal!

Gary Miller really came through for me when my son got 3 tickets in one evening. Two of the tickets were easily remedied - produce a registration; replace an exhaust system but, the last one was a doozy especially since my son had just recently received his license. My son faced losing his license and his insurance rates going through the roof.
I selected Gary Miller because I wanted a lawyer that was familiar with the village court where the tickets occurred. He is a tough and experienced trial lawyer that really goes to bat for his clients. He got back to me right away whenever I had questions about the case.
Gary Miller got all the tickets dismissed. What my son did was stupid and he has learned his lesson. Thank you, thank you, Gary Miller for giving my son a second chance.
Again, I would highly recommend Gary Miller if you ever need a traffic attorney.

Mr. Miller's work on my traffic case was exemplary. He was responsive, always picking up his phone himself, or getting back to me promptly. He kept me informed throughout the case, changed his strategy when it turned out the case was more complicated than I had told him, and achieved a result for me that was more than fair. He is also easygoing and easy to speak to. He never makes you feel like he is squeezing in a call with you. Most of all, he under-promises and over-delivers. I felt lucky to have found him.
