Excellent Criminal Defense
I cannot say enough good things about Mr. Miller. My son had gotten himself in a bit of trouble. Mr. Miller went above and beyond in looking for the truth in his case. He was very through, kept to the facts, didn’t play any head games, and kept me up to date on what was happening. I was given a flat rate of what it would cost and did not get any surprise cost adjustments later on. If you need a superb criminal defense lawyer, I highly recommend Mr. Miller.
