Exceeded all expectations
Shane Miller changed the trajectory of my life. I was facing three felony charges and he managed to get them reduced to a misdemeanor. Throughout my lengthy case Shane was attentive and quick to answer any questions or concerns I had either by phone or text. I’m not the type of person that takes the time to write reviews for services but in this case I feel compelled to. I’m sure there are other attorneys that are also punctual and professional, but I felt that Shane cared about not only my case, but my well being even when I didn’t care about my own. That’s not my experience with other attorneys and I believe that’s something money can’t buy.

10 of 10 Use Attorney Shane Miller
Attorney Shane Miller Cares! He kept me up to date on what was going in my case and court. Making legal decisions that can affect your life forever can be extremely stressful. Shane was able to reduce my stress and let me focus on family and work and allowed me to make the best educated decision on how we should proceed in my case. Shane not only was able to advise me on what to do he was able to get my Class 4 Felony Reduced to a Class 1 Misdemeanor and got me off of probation that was supposed to be 18 months in 10! He is professional and literally one of the best people I know! If you are stressed or are trying to figure out what you are going to do in a legal situation call Attorney Shane Miller at the Miller Law Firm! 10/10!!!

Highly Recommend Shane Miller - Saved my daughters future!
As a father of a teenage daughter with a bright future ahead of her, you can only imagine how worried and concerned we were when our daughter was involved in an automobile accident. She was facing potentially felony charges. Shane was instrumental in getting 4 of the 5 charges dismissed. Additionally, Shane was successful in getting the 5th charge lowered to a misdemeanor with no jail time or fines. Amazing! Once we retained Shane we were confident that we had the best representation possible and Shane made a very difficult and stressful situation very easy. I would highly recommend Shane for anyone looking for great representation from a true professional. Thank you Shane! Best, Scott W.

Shane Miller
Shane helped me lower felony charges to a low misdemeanor with no jail time or fines. He’s by far the best lawyer I’ve ever had. He also followed up with my case after he got my chargers lowered.

Assigned through Public Defense but DEFENDED like a HIRED attorney!
I am not from Arizona and got arrested while visiting. Shane was assigned to me through the PD's office. He answered my calls from jail, handled my case professionally, efficiently and made sure I knew exactly what was going all throughout my experience. He explained Arizona laws and made sure I knew the process and that all my questions were totally answered. With his help I was able to plea down to a signicantly lower charge, get out of jail prior to sentencing and only serve probation when there was possible prison time for my original charges! He even remembered me when I called for probation questions a full 6 months later and over a YEAR LATER when I had questions for a friend. He's number one on my list if I talk to anyone in need of legal help for referrals!

Best Decision!
My first reaction when I learned my son was arrested for driving under the influence was to leave him in jail so he could learn his lesson, but as the day progressed and as I tried to learn all the terms that were being thrown at me with no clear understanding of when my son would be released. I called Shane on a Sunday late afternoon & he answered! He explained what was happening and said he could be at the court house when he went in front of the judge. Shane took care of everything, explained next steps and always kept me informed. I never thought I would have the need to hire a lawyer, but the decision to call Shane was one of the best decisions I've made. The weight of that day seemed to immediately lift after talking to Shane.

DUI with BAC 0.125% reduced to a traffic violation
Hiring Shane as my defense attorney was one of the best decisions I've made. From the very beginning, Shane was very responsive and kept me informed about every single aspect of the case and also about possible outcomes. Mr. Miller did a lot of hard work and was able to punch enough holes in the case to get it successfully reduced to a reckless driving plea. I highly recommend Shane Miller especially if you find yourself in a situation where you have been charged with a DUI. Thank you Shane once again for saving my career and my immigration status by getting the best possible outcome for my case....

Shane M. Miller was excellent!!!
It's really hard to find an honest, reputable attorney who has your best interest in mind and Shane Miller is exactly that! I was arrested late at night and Shane actually came and visited me at the Mesa Police station in the middle of the night and kept me from having to serve more time. He was also able to reduce the severity of my charges. I can't thank him enough! If you need an attorney, I would recommend Shane Miller in a heartbeat to anyone!!!

Great Lawyer!
This was a first me! I've never been to court and I did not know what to expect. It wasn't until I hired Mr. Miller, he is very professional and took my case with confidence. He's very attentive and kept me informed every step of the way. Mr. Miller even got my case dismissed at my hearing before the judge and he kept me from getting a warrant! Thanks Shane!

wouldn't use anyone else!!!
Shane is an amazing attorney that believes in his clients and will work to no end to prove their innocents. I hope my family never needs his services again but if we did he would be our only choice! He kept our family up to date on everything, called about changes even when he was on vacation. I sometimes think that I'd still be visting my brother in jail if it weren't for Shane. I know myself and my Mom feel eternally great full for his services in my brothers case. Thank you Shane

Set Aside Action -- Very Pleased Client
I had cause to retain Shane's services in connection with a need on my part to have 2 separate misdemeanor verdicts (one of which had been a felony, reduced to a misdemeanor upon satisfactory completion of probation) set aside in two separate courts: City of Phoenix, and Superior Court. Both were nearly 20 years gone by when I sought Shane's assistance. This is pertinent because it predates the massive conversion of records to electronic media and this added a significant degree of aggravation for Shane and his staff. This was hardly a landmark Supreme Court decision, yet Shane always made me feel like I had his undivided attention. He was always friendly and courteous, attentive, active on my case, and professional. I was and am very pleased with Shane's handling of the matter and with the outcome. I would unquestionably seek him out for any legal service needs I might have in the future, and, would absolutely have no hesitation in recommending him to you.

DUI Review
I got a felony DUI in May of 2013 because my license was suspended and I got into a car accident and was arrested for a DUI. I hired an attorney and it was Shane Miller. He was very good, very professional, he was never hard to get a hold of. He called me back whenever I called, and he kept me informed the entire time of the case. By October of 2013 he was able to reach a settlement with the prosecutor. He was successful in reducing my felony charge down to a misdemeanor. This settlement made a world of difference to my future career and my overall entire life.

Professional and Helpful
I hired Shane for a DUI case in December of 2012. He was professional from the start and made certain that I had as much information about my case as possible. I was initially very concerned as I was not at all familiar with DUI law. However, I immediately felt more comfortable having some knowledge about what to expect throughout my case's progression. He also made every effort to quickly address any and all questions that I had. If there was any information he was unfamiliar with, he went the extra mile to find the answer for me. I would highly recommend him to anyone and would not hesitate in hiring him to represent me again.

DUI Dismissal
In the words of Mr. Miller " It’s not often Gilbert Court dismisses a DUI, especially without first having a suppression hearing". Mr. Miller kept me informed at all times. He was very punctual in returning all my e-mails and phone calls. I would recommend this law firm without hesitation. They are also very reasonably priced. I shopped around before hiring Knowles Law firm. After several consultations, I am very satisfied I went with them. Even if the charges were not dismissed he was not gong to charge me any more money if it went to trial. Thank you very much Mr. Miller !

Excellent Representation!
Shane provided knowledgeable and effective counsel in my case. He kept me up to date with any proceedings or any changes in the matter. I give Shane my highest recommendation!

The first honest attorney I have ever met!
Shane Miller did not just win a case for me, he changed my life. He is the first honest attorney that I have ever met. After I had already hired two attorneys who were happy to take my money with no results, I hired Shane Miller and he did not give up on my case. My first attorney did not even show up to court once, my second attorney tried to get me to take a plea bargain even though the case was already dismissed, but after the charges were re-filed against me, I hired Shane Miller and he was there during the whole process. There are a lot of attorneys out there looking to empty your pockets but Shane Miller is not one of them. He worked with me financially and kept me informed every step of the way. The accusations against me cost me my job, I failed two semesters of college, and almost lost my home. Shane Miller gave me hope and now that my case is behind me, I am finishing my degree soon and I am now a local business owner. He even inspired me to start Law School myself. Shane Miller is not just the best attorney I have ever seen, but one of the best people I have ever had the pleasure to meet. If I ever have any legal issues, I will always hire Shane Miller.
