  • Gary Schaffer Miller

    Matt and I recently represented a client in an high stakes criminal jury trial involving complex legal issues and facts. His level of preparation and courtroom demeanor were excellent despite the subject matter and obstacles we faced at every turn. I would recommend him without hesitation. I have also represented co-defendants with him previously and he always is a powerful advocate for his clients.
