Attorney Milligan is a very confident lawyer. He knows what he is doing and does what he says he will do. He has your best interest at heart. He makes himself very available for consultation and knows how to keep his client calm by being realistic and straight forward. I was feeling overwhelmed and anxious at times because there is a lot to lose when it comes to your drivers license. I was from out of state and knew no one that could help me through my situation. I called several lawyers for consultation and he seemed to be the only one that could give me clarity on the situation and wasn't trying to rush me to a decision. He gave me clear instruction on my options and the possible outcomes of those choices. Remember he doesn't have a crystal ball, but he has experience and knows the people in the court system. He knows the law. He knows what he is doing without a doubt, I have seen it first hand. It is hard to trust someone you don't know or haven't even met, but you can trust Attorney Milligan.

I felt confident having Jay handle my case from the minute I met him. During my initial meeting with him, immediately he understood my situation (a rather lengthy one, time-wise) and made it very clear what I/we had to do to have a chance at a favorable outcome. It was a lot of work for me and a very different approach from that undertaken by my previous attorneys.
He made absolute certain that I was prepared for the hearing, calling me the night before as well as talking with me in person the
day of. He was (and is) clear, concise and just positive enough throughout the entire process. I had, and still have the utmost confidence in Jay Milligan and HIGHLY recommend him as counsel for any alcohol-related driving offense. I imagine he is just as competent in any other area of the law in which he wishes to become involved.
By the way, we did have a favorable outcome, and I owe it all to direction given and taken by Attorney Jay Milligan.

James M. Milligan did an amazing job aiding me through the whole process when it came to getting through the court system. He made it easy and took care of every obstacle to ensure the best result in the end. My head was all over the place the day it started, but was quickly put to ease once I had Jay to help!

Jay Milliigan and his staff could not be more sympathetic, non-judgmental, knowledgeable and competent. I was in Court just today with J. Milligan and felt as if I was a "bundle of nerves". He has complete command of the Court room, exudes confidence and most importantly is an expert with respect to the law. Not Guilty verdict. If you are scared, unsure -- PLEASE call him. His staff is awesome and they too are kind and knowledgable. Further, he is the best dressed attorney in any Court room, trust me, it helps to present this way. Call him.

Jay was an exceptional lawyer. He represented me with passion, poise, and intelligence. His cross-examination of my arresting police officer left her speechless and he was able to get my DUI thrown out with ease, due to his determination and savvy. I would certainly recommend Jay Milligan to anyone needing assistance, he won my case and came at a very fair price.

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.
