Jay Milligan saved my life. As a first time offender, I was charged with an aggravated DUI charge after another person was injured in an accident I was involved in, which is a felony in Massachusetts. I was looking at a mandatory six to twelve months in state prison. Jay helped to facilitate an agreement with the victim on the pending civil case I was also involved in and used that as leverage to convince the district attorney to reduce the charges against me, effectively eliminating any mandatory prison sentence. He was also able to negotiate an arrangement that allowed me to continue to work, attend meetings and counseling. He worked tirelessly to promote my interests and truly don't know how to thank him enough. I can now begin to work on rebuilding my life after this horrible mistake and am grateful for his guidance throughout the legal process.

I hired Attorney Milligan after hearing about not only his success in the court room, but the confidence he instills within his clients throughout the duration of the litigation. Attorney Milligan has a certain presence about him which demands respect, and that's exactly what he gets in the court room. His relentlessness and refusal to accept an undesirable verdict is what makes him great. Jay Milligan comes very highly recommended by myself, and others that have used his services.

I was arrested and charged with a third offense OUI and leaving the scene after causing property damage. I was devastated over the five year license loss for refusal of the breath test and the possibility of five months mandatory jail time with an additional eight years loss of license. Hiring the right attorney was one of the biggest decisions of my life. After doing some research, Jay Milligan had the most experience and best reputation. After our first consultation, I felt like he was the right guy and his fees were fair given the severity of the case. Throughout the process of going to trial, Jay and his team fought for me every step of the way, including challenging the 5 year suspension for my refusing the breath test, which we won and I got my license back during the pendency of the case, this was a very unique bonus. The real challenge was wining at the trial. My honest opinion about Jay after sitting in the defense chair watching him at trial is he is truly very experienced, aggressive and takes his work very seriously. It was clear he had my best interests in mind and truly cared. The district attorney also took this very seriously and was pushing back with multiple police witnesses and civilian witnesses. Throughout the cross examination of these witnesses Jay was able to open and punch holes through their testimony. Getting to the Trial took a long time and I knew it could go either way for me, but I was also confident because I knew that Jay was prepared and we had done everything we could have done to win the case. I was found not guilty on both charges after a jury trial. I would recommend Jay and his team to anyone without hesitation in this kind of serious position. Their professionalism and experience in this area surpasses any OUI attorney out there and the results of my trial speak for themselves.

I had an OUI pending and I didn't know where to look. I typed in OUI attorney in google and James name was first to come up. I called him that night and he answered right away on a Sunday around 5pm. He advised me the whole way through. Everything happened the way he said it would. We won our trial with flying colors because of his court room skill. He is very personable and down right good man, on top of being in my opinion an excellent lawyer. You would dumb not to use him. Thank you so much James for giving me my life back.

I met with jay milligan at his office in norwell ma almost 1year ago for a 3rd oui charge he wasted no time being very direct on options that may or may not apply to me in my case I hired jay and we began the court process jay and his partner joe Higgins were always on top of everything going on in and out of the court room. Very confident and aggressive towards anyone trying to speak against me on the charges I was appealing when we went to trial I was found innocent of a 3rd dui charge jay had done a excellent job arguing the evidence the prosecutor was trying to use against me as well as all his knowledge in these specific areas of defense. I also was given my driver liscence priveledge back which could have only happened if I won my case and having jay milligan it happened. I have not always made the right choices in life and have had to have other attorney's on different matters represent me. However hands down jay milligan and joe Higgins r the best I highly recommend them to anyone that has a criminal offense or especially drinking related charges. Thanks for everything guys again god bless you! !!

James Milligan is the best lawyer I have come to deal with. He personally help save me from the legal system and was not going to let the system win this case. Jay is amazing in the courtroom. He basically does not back down, he is professional and very well mannered. But what i loved the most was his knowledge that he knew. Everything the d.a. and the police or judge would through out he had an answer for that would shut them down and because of that my case was DISMISSED!!!. this man is amazing. And by the way he got my license back a couple months after i was charged with the oui. Please hire this man if you plan to get your life back on track, him and his staff are amazing.

Hiring Jay was the best decision I made. I used an attorney for a past incident and found him ill prepared and unfamiliar with some of the facts of my case a day prior to trial. Not a good feeling when you're the accused sitting in the courtroom. My experience with Jay however was quite the opposite. This realization became even more apparent at my trial. Jay came prepared, knew the facts of my case, providing documentation of medical records, distances traveled, road conditions, traffic patterns, etc. prior to being pulled over. He spoke eloquently, firmly, and respectfully when cross examining officers. Jay was able to expose discrepancies in their testimony versus what was written in their reports. Professional, competent, courteous, and confident. Jay has your back. When confronted with a possibly life altering situation, you must hire an attorney with the experience, expertise, tenacity, and the compassion to understand what you're going through. Jay Milligan is that attorney. He is a strong advocate for those accused of DUI/OUI. I cannot recommend him enough.

After hiring an attorney who has helped my family with assorted issues in the past, I learned the hard way, the value of hiring an expert in DUI matters. My first lawyer took my money, but was in over his head. The result was a plea (CWOF). This meant costly restrictions on my license during a long suspension for refusing the breath test.
I agreed to the plea after listening to the first lawyer's misrepresentation of the law, telling me that I would be reinstated at a RMV hearing w/in 60 days. When I realized that was not true, I found Jay Milligan. Jay heard my story, and accepted my case. Jay Milligan was able to vacate the plea, and give me another chance for a trial. The timely result was "not guilty"! I currently have an unrestricted license and I am able to contribute to my family, and my life again. Without Jay, I would have had a limited hardship license with a costly blow to start device, and a damaging record of DUI. James M. Milligan is professional, knowledgeable, prepared, and treats you with respect. If you are reading this, Jay Milligan and his staff are exactly what you need. In my case, the results are the best possible for an extremely complicated and difficult situation. The money I saved by hiring the family's "guy" made me feel good for a day. The value of paying for the services of an expert, I will appreciate for a lifetime. A+ service is my review for Jay and his excellent staff.

I was represented by Jay Milligan for a 3 OIU. he was able to prove to them that I was guilty and had all the evidence suppressed. Every time o called or had any questions they would respond by the end of the day. Also they are very nice and they are very good at what they do. I would recommend them to anyone also I'm thankful for what they did for me and my family.
