First off, Jay will put you at ease at first contact. He's a very likeable guy that understands your situation. The communication process that follows is meticulous.
I have had the unfortunate yet compelling opportunity to see Attorney Milligan masterfully handle my case in court on two occasions. Both were acquitted. I would never consider anyone else.
Thank you Jay, Joe and Karen!

Jay Milligan – MIRACLE WORKER
Let me begin by stating I have a Very unique case history, in that I have been Charged & Convicted of (3) three DUI 1st Offenses.
October 1997, Framingham, MA
September 2011, Rhode Island
July 2013, Middleton, MA’
And I should inform you, that in all (3) cases I failed a Field Sobriety Test and Breathalyzer Test.
Following the 2013 case, being convicted of only a 1st Offense and sentenced to 90-Day Suspended license, and installation of a Breathalyzer device, I proceeded to the DMV to apply for a “Hardship”/” Cinderella License. I was told to have the ignition device installed and to come back with the appropriate paper work. When I returned, I was told the DMV story changed, they stated that my License would probably be suspended for (8) Years, Looking back at all Three Convictions. I immediately contacted my attorney from my latest case (2013 Middleton) Martin Kane. Martin not handling many DUI cases at the time referred me to Jay Milligan, and called him a “DUI Miracle Worker”.
Attorney Milligan looked over my unique case and immediately had a plan of action. He told me he was going to attempt to get my 1997 Conviction Vacated. I know what you are thinking and I was thinking the same thing, HOW THE HELL is he going to do that? I Failed the Sobriety Test, I failed the Breathalyzer Test, what did he have to work with? Attorney Milligan proceeded as planned despite my disbelief and Filed A MOTION FOR A NEW TRIAL. Apparently, the paperwork from my 1997 Arrest had a BOX that stated “I had the right to a Jury Trial”, that Box was left UNCHECKED by the Judge. This unchecked Box got our foot in the door for a new trial.
Next, we WAITED, 6-8 months for the Judge that presided over my 1997 case to RETIRE. You know what they say “Timing is Everything”. After the Judge’s retirement Attorney Milligan and his team submitted the paperwork for the New Trial, and 6-8 months later the new trial was granted. Attorney Milligan was even more confident, so confident that he believed the STATE would Drop All Charges before the court date. That was not the case. When the state was asked to produce the key witness, The Arresting Officer they could not do so. Remember it has been 19 Years since the arrest, the arresting officer has retired to Florida and refused to travel back to Massachusetts to testify. Result, CASE CLOSED, ALL CHARGES DROPPED! As if it never happened, I can’t tell you how many times I wished I had a Time Machine, and could go back and Erase that mistake (And a few others). Now I had a Time Machine and his name is Attorney Jay Milligan.
Now with the 1997 Conviction ERASED from my record, it’s time to schedule a hearing with the DMV to reinstate my driving privileges.

Jay is an excellent attorney with knowledge and experience to take me through the 16 months, over a half dozen hearings, and ending in a Jury trial. He was able to press every advantage and ultimately convincing the jury to render a not guilty verdict on all counts. I highly recommend Jay to anyone looking for the best representation.

One of the best attorneys in the field. I had the pleasure of getting to know Attorney Milligan's skills when dealing with him as a prosecutor. He was always prepared, and presented all his clients' cases with a polished and distinguished presence. Highly recommended. GP
