EXCELLENT!!!!
I was wrongly accused and had 10 days to respond. I initially attempted to represent myself, but then called Millar Law and several other firms but the friendly staff, the fast response from Christopher Millar and feeling that it was personal and not so corporate hooked me. Christopher showed up on time ready to go! He was excellent and WE WON!!!! I definitely could not have done it alone and am so grateful for Millar Law for representing me!!! Thank you Chris, Ashley and Aiyana!!!

#1 Defense Attorney in Arizona
Let me start by saying I choose the right lawyer for a hope less situation! This Lawyer managed to create a miracle, when all hope was lost. Not to mention his fee that he charged was more than great savings especially for the amount of work he put in. Mr. Millar kept me well informed of the multiple court hearings and cases. If you do not want to gamble with your life or future, then retain the number one defense attorney in Arizona. I will recommend friends and family if they ever need to retain a defense attorney as I can only say enough amazing things that Mr Millar did for me! Read his reviews as one after another say the same amazing things that this lawyer does for his clients. This lawyer goes the extra mile. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Mr. Millar.

Thoughts of my Attorney
Christopher is without a doubt a very professional conscientious individual when working for you. When Chris would talk, text or email me, he always made sure my son John was advised of the same information at the same time. My son lives in another state. Chris was very considerate taking the extra time for us. This means a Great deal in this day and age!! Thank You Christopher

The person you want by your side.
I normally don't write reviews, but in this case, it's too important not to. If I can help even one person by sharing my experience with Chris Millar, then it's worth it. I recently hired Chris Millar as my criminal defense attorney and I couldn't be more grateful to have found him and I highly recommend him to anyone in need of legal representation. After facing a very difficult situation, a DUI charge after the loss of my father, I was in desperate need of a competent and understanding lawyer. Prior to finding Chris, I chose a different firm and it was a disaster. They lacked knowledge about Veterans Court, showed a lack of professionalism, and poor communication, all while charging me double the amount I was quoted. I felt like I was in the dark and just a number to them who focused on billable hours to collect money. That all changed when I found Chris. From the moment I spoke to him, I could tell he was knowledgeable and experienced. He took the time to understand my situation and worked tirelessly to help me get the best possible outcome. Chris was able to successfully negotiate the charges against me down with the minimum sentence. He always kept me informed throughout the process and I never felt like just a number to him. Finding a good criminal defense attorney can be a difficult and overwhelming process, especially when you're dealing with such a sensitive and personal matter. It's easy to fall into the trap of hiring an attorney who is only in it for the money and doesn't truly care about your case. But with Chris Millar, you won't have to worry about that. Not only is he knowledgeable and experienced, but he also has a genuine character and a deep understanding of the justice system. In addition to his exceptional legal skills, Chris Millar is a person of great integrity with strong moral code and is dedicated to fighting for the rights of his clients. In short, Chris Millar is the person you want by your side to represent you - a knowledgeable, experienced, and compassionate criminal defense attorney who is truly committed to helping his clients get the best possible outcome. Don’t make my mistake in choosing another firm. Choose Chris Millar. You won’t regret it.

Great Attorney, Amazing empathetic person
Chris helped me with my case and really helped me with my life in the best way possible. He kept me up to date constantly through the whole process. He was professional but also kind and treated me fairly and earnestly. I can’t express how much I appreciate everything he’s done and continues to do for me and my family. I told him I’m available to talk to any prospective clients if they had any other questions because I feel like I owe him that

True Professional
As a fellow Attorney in the area, I never hesitate to refer folks to Chris. I’ve personally seen Chris always putting the interests of his clients first ways truly wanting the best for them. This is a trait that can be rare to find in a defense attorney.

Great attorney!
Chris has the inside edge that many other criminal attorneys don’t. He knows the prosecutors and knows what their strengths and weaknesses are. He is great when it comes to communicating what stage of the case we are at, and what the next steps will be.

Excellent attorney who has a passion for what he does
I hired Chris Millar to be my attorney in my criminal case a few months ago. I never was in trouble before and was facing criminal charges. He was able to get the criminal charges dismissed completely. He is truly a lifesaver.
