The very BEST!
Lorenzo is awesome and achieves positive results for his clients. He is very personable, genuine, and patient as he listens and explains what to expect. His knowledge and advice helped relieve our stress and confusion through three different cases with our son. He is prompt in responding to calls and texts, and will meet with you any time there is a need. With this last case of my son, Lorenzo gave us various challenges and directives to get accomplished prior to each court date which helped with the results of his sentencing. The outcome was more positive than expected, and we couldn't have done it without him. He is the best and we feel very fortunate for his help.

Lorenzo is top notch. Highly knowledgeable and relates all angles and facets of each case thoroughly. Excellent communicator with a big heart. Highly recommended and will do well by you as much as can be allowed. He will find all the wiggle room possible to obtain. Lorenzo cares about the people he serves and deserves utmost respect. A genuine man with a high caliber of integrity. Thanks for your support Mr. Miller!

My son was in a bad situation. he was on felony probation. Lorenzo was able to help him start the probation over for a smaller amount of time and also got my son the help that he needed. He truly saved him. I am forever grateful.

Lorenzo, someone you can’t count on.
Lorenzo went above and beyond on multiple occasions. I got a DUI and actually got referred from a friend to go to Lorenzo and I did the day after my DUI. From the beginning Lorenzo was very honest with me about all the outcomes of my case. He told me the bad and the good. Not once trying to sugar coat anything. I truly appreciated that. From what I’ve also experienced he charges fairly and does the most for you buck. He is a honest, hardworking, and caring lawyer. You can tell he honestly cares about his clients and is willing to fight for them. He made this process as pleasant as it could be and was always just a text or call away always responding ASAP. I truly hope I never have any legal problems in the future but if I ever do he will be the first person I go to. I would definitely recommend him.

Caring, compassionate, and hard working.
I was revoked from felony probation, and charged with 2 new felonies. I was looking at serious prison time, but my case has some facets that were out of the ordinary. Lorenzo fought for me and my family, and went above and beyond. He thinks outside the box, is always up front with realistic outlook, and did EVERYTHING he said he would do. I always felt safe and secure in his council. Even when I was willing to accept some things he didn't think I deserved it was him that got me to have patience. He is the best attorney I have ever had and sadly there have been a few. He recognized I wasn't my record and where I had been in life was not where I was. He believed in me when I needed it the most, and through believing in him I got the best possible resolution to my case because he is in my opinion the best at what he does. There are a ton of attorneys going through the motions LITERALLY. This isn't one of them.

His your man
Lorenzo helped me with my case with a DUI and was able to help me win my case. He also has been my google answer for everything with law and helping me find the correct lawyers that can assist, along with the best in Utah! You won't be disappointed by him ever!

Best of the Best
I couldn't find a lawyer that would take my DUI case in Cedar City, Utah because most lawyers said you won't win no matter what down there. That wasn't the case for Lorenzo. Even though the court system down there sucks and it took a year to resolve Lorenzo was always on his A game. You will be making the biggest mistake of your life if you do not hire Lorenzo Miller as your lawyer. Not only did he own the court, thought extremely well on his feet, but he WON my case! I can promise you won't find anyone better than him.

Criminal Defense
Lorenzo Miller told my case and worked from the first minute until it was resolved here in Utah. He is knowledgeable, kind and a very good listener. His knowledge of the legal system and the law is tops. I can't thank him enough. He took care of my out of state bail the same day and I was released.

Effective and a genius!
Lorenzo represented me in a criminal case, but my case was not just complicated, complex as well; he took the case to the last consequence and he was able to obtain a deal that I couldn't refuse. He is the best of the best!
Posted by Jeff | January 28, 2015
Mr. Miller was very professional, and kept me up to date on my case. He got the case dismissed, with very little effort on my part. Would refer to others without hesitation, and if needed, will use him again.

Loyal Client
I idolize and adore this man! He has been through thick and thin with me through several years now. Through my least of best to worst of times Lorenzo has been there for me and I would trust no one else as much as I do him, which is the reason I always keep coming back if ever I'm in trouble. He's honest, fair and sees both sides to ever situation, always giving you the benefit of the doubt, backing you up 100%! Thanks for always having mine! :)

Lorenzo was a life-saver for me. He was extremely knowledge and all around great lawyer and guy. Right from the start, he took the time to explain the ins and outs of my case, making sure I understood all my options. As the case evolved, he always kept in touch and made sure I was aware of the current state of the case as well as what my best option was at that time. Not only did he interpret the law famously, but at the end of the day got me the best result I could have possibly asked for. I would recommend him to anyone based on professionalism, personality, and expertise.

I wouldn't go to any other lawyer than Lorenzo Miller!
I am so lucky I trusted Lorenzo with my criminal case. I was able to get through a hard time in my life without going to jail because of his help. I have worked with lawyers, paid the same amount, and received half the help, if that. I wouldn't trust anyone else if I were to face a criminal charge again.

Amazing Lawyer
For months I requested Mr. Miller to create an online profile just so I could write him a review. He is not a fan of online marketing as most of his business comes from word of mouth - because he is such a great lawyer. I was in search of a new lawyer since I was extremely dissatisfied with my lawyer at the time (I fired her). Mr. Miller was referred to me by a friend. He worked relentlessly on my case, through studying, negotiations, interviews and even consultations with other lawyers. He is very well-known and skilled as he was a prosecutor for years. He was very honest, realistic and loyal from the very beginning. His professionalism put me at ease during a very stressful time of my life. He truly cared for the outcome of my case and he gave it his best. I was never a number or an easy "in-out" client. I am extremely grateful Mr. Miller came into my life when he did as it made the most significant difference I could have ever hoped for. I recommend him to everyone and anyone in need of skilled assistance. You will not be disappointed.

Amazing attorney- He goes above and beyond
I called a few attorneys on my case, actually met with one other before Lorenzo. When I met with Lorenzo I was blown away by his knowledge and honesty. He didn't just tell me what I wanted to hear, he told me the facts of what could happen and then worked his butt off to do the job right. I know he worked a lot of hours on my case and really did his best, ultimately resulting in the best outcome I could hope for in my case. He was very available to me when I needed to call him for answers to ease my mind, even outside of normal office hours. He has past experience working as a prosecutor (I think over 20 years) so he knows the ins and outs of the system very well! He was very pleasant to work with. I would highly recommend Lorenzo to anyone looking for someone to do the job right. I must add, I was recommended to Lorenzo by a friend who used him on their case. My friend had a previous attorney who completely slacked on her case. She dropped her old attorney and hired Lorenzo. He came right in and put things back in order, fought hard, and ended up getting her case dismissed because of his knowledge of the law. I would not hesitate to recommend him to everyone I know. Not only is he an excellent attorney, but an all around good guy.

Marijuana Misdemeanor Consultation
Lorenzo knows exactly what he's saying in defense of criminal torts. I called many other lawyers and each one of them could not provide the information that I should know, due to lack of experience. Lorenzo is well experienced and was an ex-prosecutor for 20 years. That being said, he can forecast what these prosecutors are going to be doing. I highly recommend this lawyer, he's a very knowledgeable and extremely trust worthy; he could've told me that I needed a lawyer to represent me, but he didn't, such as other lawyers I've called in the past. Thanks a ton Lorenzo!

Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"Lorenzo was my first supervisor / mentor when I got out of law school. Now more than 12 years later I still go to him for advise on cases. There are some areas where he is just the best expert in the state. I've worked as an employee of his, as opposing counsel, as a fellow attorney in the community and he's also helped me on cases."

"Lorenzo Miller is a great attorney. He represents his clients in a competent and aggressive manner. Lorenzo's clients are well represented."
Criminal defense Attorney | Aug 26
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I was opposing counsel with Lorenzo many years ago. He was very effective and very professional. He was a prosecutor at the time. Although we didn't always agree, he was always respectful and courteous and was not power hungry like some prosecutors can be. I sensed back then that he was a man of fairness. Now that he is a defense attorney he gets his clients great results because he has garnered trust with prosecutors and judges throughout the state and they know he is a fair person. He is not afraid to state his opinion, but can do it in a way that is not offensive or repulsive. He is very persuasive with the courts and with prosecutors. I would highly recommend him."
