Best Lawyer In Miami
I Contacted Mr. Larry McMillan As Well As Five Other Attorneys For Consultion. As A Result I Chose Larry Due To His Eager Interest In My Case. His Prepartion From The Beginning To The End Of The Case Was Phenomenal. I Was Looking At A 10 Year Mandatory Sentence Plus 5 Years Coming To A Total Of 15 Years. After Many Attorneys Told Me I Would Not Be Able To Get A Better Plea Then 10 Years. Larry Got On My Case And Faught For Me, I Ended Up Receiving Credit Time Serve For 12 Months Credit And Probation. My Point Is That Larry McMillan Will Fight For You, Anwser All Your Text, Calls, E-Mails And Questions Until The Very End To Assure That You Are Satisfied With The Plea. He Keeps His Word And I Can Honestly Say He Is One Of The Best Defense Attorneys In Miami Hands Down. Thank You Larry

Hardworking Attentive Attorney
Larry has represented me in 2012 and again in 2017. He is straightforward, honest, and tells it like it is. No sugar coating which I greatly appreciate. He clearly breaks down the situation for you and explains your options. I always feel comfortable and at ease speaking with him and I know that he has my best interests at heart. I am very happy to have his services available to me.

He saved my life
I was charged for the DV injunction. it was the first time I had to go to the court in my life, so everything was not easy for me. I walked into his office and explained him my case. He listened to me and explained what he will do for me. He didn't seem just an attorney, but someone who cared about me and my future. At the same time, I also consulted with several other attorneys to select the best possible attorney for myself based on my situation. You know, when it comes to our future you want to know that our lawyer is doing his all for us. After considering several parameters, I realized he is the best lawyer for me and I have more chance with him to win. He put enormous time and energy into helping me and finally my case was dismissed. I believe he saved my future and my life. I really appreciate his help and I will never forget him in my life. Even after the court, I still need his services and his advice when I am filling out some forms and I don't know how should I answer some questions regarding the background check. He still answers all of my questions in a timely manner. His advice and service are priceless for me. Mr. Larry Mcmillan provided outstanding services for his client. I believe he has vast experience with dealing with civil and criminal cases. I highly recommend Mr. Larry Mcmillan to the reader of this review.

Responsive and Aggressive Attorney
I contacted Larry McMillan after receiving a fairly serious traffic citation. He was extremely prompt on returning my initial call and gathering all the prudent information to advise me accordingly. Upon completion of my free consultation; I decided to retain Mr. McMillan to represent me in my case. Mr. McMillan appeared on my behalf, at the arraignment, and was successful in persuading the court to dismiss the entire case completely. Attorney Larry McMillan comes with my highest recommendation.

Amazing Attorney
What an amazing and knowledgable Attorney!! I needed help with a drug possession charge and his experience, help and patience has let me sleep at night. Not all Attorneys in Miami are as excellent and personal as him. I would not be where I am today without him!! If I ever need representation again, I will ONLY go to him.

Case Dismissed!
Living more than 1200 miles away from Miami, FL., Larry's expertise and representation made me feel confident that he would take care of all the legal formalities in my absence. He was dilligent about gathering the facts of my case, always answered my telephone calls, and responded promptly to all of my questions via e-mail. Larry was never too busy keep me informed of the progress of my case. In fact, Larry assured me that he would appear for me at the arraignment and, since I reside out of state, my presence would not be necessary. Bottom line is Larry adroitly handled my case, kept me informed of all the details, and ultimately got my case dismissed! I would highly recommend Larry T. McMillan.

A leap of Faith
I needed a lawyer for a friend accused of domestic violence and needed to hire this lawyer within hours. I searched the internet and found Mr. McMillan. I called his office and was greated by competent friendly assistant who took my information. Larry called me back within the hour. I gave him a description of the case, asked him some qualifying questions and hired him that day to be in court the next morning. Larry handled this crunch situation, bought us time to meet with him and gave us plenty of time to consult with him. We found him to be very responsive, attentive and on point. I had the opportunity to witness him in action for my friend. He was very competent, cross examined with great questions, and was just overall impressive in the courtroom. I would recommend his services.

Criminal Case From Ultra Concert Arrest
Larry did a great job helping our family out with a case my son was involved in. We live out of state and my son was visiting for a concert and found himself in a very serious situation. My son's entire future was on the line and Larry took the situation to heart and did what needed to be done to get the case dismissed pre- filing. Larry was also a good sport about putting up with the plethora of phone calls from me and always made time to answer my questions. Larry was on top of the case from the very beginning and understood how important resolving the matter was to our son's future. I would highly recommend Larry to any family in the type of situation we found ourselves in being an out of state resident. The end result was that the case was dismissed before charges were filed. Needless to say, we were thrilled with the results. I am a criminal defense attorney in another state and would without hesitation recommend Larry to any defendant who found themselves in need of an attorney.

Great lawyer
I did a lot of research before I hired Mr. McMillan. After interviewing about 5 criminal defense lawyers, I was convinced that Mr. McMillan was the best attorney. He listed to what I had to say, he talked to me in plain simple terms. He did not try to scare me about what I might expect. He tole me the truth. He was available when I needed him.

Great criminal defense lawyer
I found this lawyer online and did not know anything about him other than what I read. Initially I was concerned if I made the correct decision. Let me tell you I could not have been more satisfied. Mr. McMillan is an excellent attorney. He took the time to explain everything. He always responded to my calls and questions. I would highly recommend him.

Great Experience with Larry McMillan
Larry has done a fantastic job with my DUI case. I was being charged with DUI with property damage and leaving the scene of the accident. Not only did Larry respond almost immediately to almost all of my emails and phone calls, but he was very helpful in explaining the law to me and providing me with some reasonable expectations. Most importantly, using some pretty good tactics, Larry was able to attain a dismissal of all charges at the trial setting. I still have an unblemished record and I can get back to my normal life thanks to Larry. Highly Recommended!
