Knowledgeable and experienced attorney that resulted in best possible outcome
Miles is a knowledgeable and experienced attorney, and I would strongly recommend him to anyone that needs legal services. He provided me with some very helpful advice, and if I was ever in need of a defense lawyer he would be the first person I would call. I worked with him for nearly a year and the result was the best possible outcome. Thank you, Miles.

Miles got my case dropped completely!
Miles is a miracle worker. I was charged with criminal trespassing after I tried to board my flight when the gate had already closed. It was a dumb decision on my part but I didn't have any criminal intent (I had a ticket and the plane was still docked at the gate so I thought I could get on but when I opened opened the door the alarm went off). Despite my stupidity, Miles convinced the prosecutor that it was an honest mistake. The prosecutor dropped the charges completely and now I don't have a criminal record thanks to Miles. Miles was friendly, knowledgeable and got results. Highly highly recommend him as an attorney.

Felony prison sentence reduced to eventual expungement
He defending me in a case for half the price that other lawyers of his caliber were charging. You’re getting a high profile lawyer early in his career. His has enormous amounts of knowledge and experience for his age. He is also a good person. He interacts well with people which goes a long way for making deals. I was facing 2-4 years in prison and a felony. He got my sentencing put off and a deal for diversion programs/classes and labor. If I do what I am supposed to then it gets reduced to a misdemeanor and no jail time. Unsupervised probation and after 2 more years, he will take care of the expungement process. Just think about that. Felony prison sentence reduced to potential misdemeanor expungement and labor hours, classes. The judge mentioned how people rarely get a second chance like I was given with those circumstances and the deal my lawyer worked out was a miracle. You’re investing in your future and getting an amazing deal. I’ve searched dozens of people and and ultimately chose Miles. He will be who I turn to for any legal help on the west coast.

Expert Defensive Attorney
Miles was incredibly helpful. I had recently gotten a traffic ticket and needed as much relevant, in depth legal advice about traffic law as possible. I was limited with finances, overwhelmed with the unjust charges I was facing, and he was able meet me where I was at. He gave me more information, insight, and legal advice than I could ask for, all the while guiding me step by step throughout the entire process. I ended up getting the case dismissed and saved so much money, all due to Miles flawless navigation of traffic law and mastery of the legal system. He understood what was at stake, the emotional and financial stress that comes with these circumstances, and acted in a way that was both considerate and honest. When you are in a legal battle, whether it be massive or minuscule, you want Miles Booth in your corner. He is also really handsome.

Clear and easy to understand
I needed some help with traffic law, so I got in touch with Miles. He was very informative. He took his time to explain everything in simple terms that everyone can understand. It cleared up the uncertainty I had about my case and I finally understood where i stand. I think that's the biggest fear when dealing with the law; we don't have an understanding of where we stand, so we freak out. We need someone who can make it clear what our position really is and inform us about our options. Miles did exactly that. Highly recommended.

Got my property back
I was referred to Miles by an associate of his, and he was quick and eager to respond to my request for consultation. After determining what was needed to be done, he was more than helpful and proactive in getting my property back to me in a quick and legal way where all parties affected were satisfied. I would highly recommend Miles, as he is very professional and personable, meaning he won't throw jargon at you, but instead be sure you understand all of your options and what his opinion on the matter(s) may be. With his background, he has the experience needed to help his clients. Hopefully, I won't need him again anytime soon, but if need be, I will definitely be calling him again.

Case Closed!
I was referred to Miles Booth to represent me in court. He was God sent! He worked on my case diligently....updating me with wvery single detail...telling me not to stress and just leave everything to him. He never failed to answer all the questuins I asked him...explaining terms I didn't undwrstan. Then I got the good news, the case was closed? For the first time, I had a good night sleep and woke-up late! I'm back to living a normal life...sleepless nights are over...no stress...no more worrying about the case. This is all because of you, Miles, thank you so much! You saved a 71 yr old woman from drowning! Truly, you are the BEST!

Great defense lawyer
Going through any legal situation can be harrowing and unnerving, however, once on the phone with Miles Booth, I was immediately put at ease. He explained the possible outcomes of a case like mine and gave me preliminary advice on the phone without even taking on the case fully. Once we started working together, Miles went to work within the system he obviously knows talking to his internal contacts in order to assist getting the case resolved to my satisfaction. In addition to being a great lawyer, Miles was also very easy to talk with, available when I had follow up questions, and even put me at ease in the courtroom during a situation that I was not normally accustomed to being in. In the end, Miles helped me get an outcome that I was happy with and even stayed with me through the end of the process within the courthouse. He then followed up with a full review of the case with all paperwork for my records. I do not generally need to recommend lawyers, but if I ever need to, Miles would be my go to.

Don't Hesitate!
Mr. Booth is a top-notch attorney that I’m grateful I retained. I was facing a short amount of time in jail for a PV but because of his knowledge and experience, he felt it would be beneficial to keep pushing the court date back until we got a more lenient judge that might side with us more which is exactly what happened. I would definitely recommend him if you’re in need of legal counsel. He is very professional, punctual, knowledgeable, and is available to answer questions at any time of the day whether by email or phone. He is very timely when it comes to sending documents and explaining all the minutes if it’s a new experience for you. I hope I never have to retain him again but if something did happen, I wouldn’t think twice. Don’t hesitate and give him a call.

Working with Miles has been an incredible experience! I was in a really messy spot but Miles always approached me with respect and a great attitude that we can make things better.

Perfect experience, great lawyer AND great person!
Mr. Booth was amazing! He did an excellent job in the courtroom in convincing the judge of my innocence. But he's also been a great advisor to me personally, because unlike many other lawyers I got to know, he is empathetic, honest and human. I highly recommend Mr. Booth. Thank you for all you've done for me!
