When our son needed an attorney, we hired Mr. Cory Miller at the recommendation of a friend, who himself had had a positive experience with Mr. Miller. Our son was facing several charges, to include DUIs and Endangerment. It was a strong possibility that he might have to do state prison time of a year or more. With Mr. Miller's help, he was able to serve his time in-county and do work release as well. We are grateful for his expertise, knowledge of the local legal system, and professionalism. Mr. Miller gets our highest recommendation.

We live in Maryland and needed legal advice after our 20 year old son got himself into trouble in Lancaster. An evening of underage drinking escalated out control and he was facing several non-traffic citations which would have remained on his public record for five years, discoverable to any potential employer’s background search. We called Cory’s office based simply on an internet search. He was responsive and thorough in his initial consultation and advised us on what was at stake and how he felt he could help. We hired him thereafter. A few weeks later, immediately prior to the judicial hearing, he consulted with the officer and EMT involved. Cory was familiar with the judge assigned and how best to communicate with her. Working with the court, Corey was able to secure community service and a diversion program for our son, with the aim to have our son’s record expunged within a year. A good outcome from an unfortunate incident. He is professional and delivered for us. Kudos and thank you Cory!

Probation Termination
I hired Corey Miller for a probation termination cuz I had a warrant because of a PV. Long story short I’m no longer on probation and I no longer have a warrant and I did no jail time. He gave me multiple options on which way it could go and we took the one with most risk and it paid off which tells me this guy really knows what he’s doing. I 100% recommended.

Attorney Cory Miller has went above and beyond for me. He is taking care of legal matters for me in the past and now has handled other matters for me also. I would recommend him to anyone that needed anything because when I needed him he was there for me. Cory you know what I mean when I say this thank you from the bottom of my heart. You’re an outstanding person and one hell of an attorney.

Miracle Worker
Cory was hired to get me through 5 DUS charges that I received during COVID. I thought I was going to do a lot of jail time but he was able to get me house arrest. Thank you Cory for the help that you and your staff have provided me with resolving my cases.

All Charges Nolle Prossed!
My journey in 2019 was one of the worst moments of my life, and Cory did exactly what he promised to do when he proved my innocence. Aside from just being the best at what he does, he is just overall an amazing calm support throughout the process. No matter how many calls, texts, or the times I requested to meet with him he was always there. Believe me if you are facing any criminal charges this is the man you want to represent you. Thank you Cory for everything.

Second DUI
I was going to do 90 days in jail with 5 years probation. Cory did what he said he was going to do and got me out of it. Now I can see my baby daughter be born and be with my family. If there were 20 stars I would give them. Thank you Cory!

Great Representation
Cory represented me in 2014-15 in a serious criminal case. He worked diligently for me, and the result for me was far better than I could have hoped for. He never minimized the seriousness of my situation or the potential consequences, but Cory fought hard for an equitable outcome. Thanks to Cory, I was never incarcerated, and have been able to live a relatively normal life, with no undue anxiety. Mr. Miller always returned my calls promptly, took his time explaining things, and best of all, treated me with respect and dignity. His fees were reasonable, and I feel I got much more than my money's worth. I was, and remain, thrilled with his superb representation. I intend to retain him again very soon for another matter.

Got my son out of Jail. Charges dismissed
5.0 star rating 1/18/2017 Cory represented my son who got into an argument with his babys mother. Though she did not want to go through with the charges the cops were making her testify. Mr. Miller helped fight for his right to remain silent and the DA couldn't make her testify. After meeting with us at his office, Mr. Miller spoke to the DA before going to Court. The cops did not force her to testify during the hearing and the charges were dismissed. Cory explained everything to us from the first time we met him. He returned all our calls and did not pass my sons case to another attorney in his office. After hearing our concerns he made a plan and followed it out. It went just as he said. I hope to never need him again but if I do he is the only attorney I will call. Thank you! Al Marshall

hands down the best attorney you can find
Corey believed in my innocense and fought for me aggressively and thoroughly. He kept constant contact with me step by step and explained everything to me as we went. He was compassionate and understanding. In the end h . Got all my charges dropped before it even went to trial. He not once ever gave up on me. Thank you so much Corey for the incredible job you have done and for giving me my life back.

Got my son out of jail
My son was jailed on a DUI and a parole violation. Although the judge didnt impose bail, the prison would not let him out. Mr. Miller informed us that his probation violation was the issue. Mr. Miller dealt quickly with the DUI hearing and immediatly scheduled my son to court for his violation as promised. After hiring Mr. Miller my son was home in three weeks. Thank you.

Greedy and full of s**t
All I can say is do not hire this man. Hes all about money. He takes advantage of vulnerable people in a messed up situation. I will never I repeat ever hire this money hungry fraud he likes to make money off of you by selling you fake dreams. Worst ever. I hired a new attorney and let me just say he's fabulous and got me what I needed done. And at a great low price. Take your money and shove it you will never get a dime from me nor my people ima make sure of it. I dont know how you sleep at night. Sickening.
