Thanks for a smooth experience with a difficult matter!
Robert and his team were excellent to work with, even through the hardships of a pandemic. He was very communicative and patient with me from the beginning to the end as we waited for the courts to open up and finally settle our matter. He has lots of experience and answered any questions (small or large) I sent his way. Highly recommended!

Best DUI in Orange County
We cannot begin to express our gratitude to Robert Miller. My ex-husband was arrested for a DUI. All we could think about was how this could destroy his life (he faced a potential termination of a 15 year career) and impact our son. I found Robert Miller and spoke to him on the phone. What struck me was how quickly he responded to my request for a call, and his professional demeanor and thoughtfulness. We later met him in person to ask him more follow-up questions. In a time of incredible uneasiness and anxiety, he did a great job of keeping in contact. He always answered our emails and calls, and kept us informed of the case’s developments. In the end, he delivered our highest expectations. He successfully got dismissed both the DMV case AND the criminal case. He is a fantastic attorney who understands professional client service and works your case with as much dedication as you can hope.

Best DUI Lawyer This side of the Mississippi
Words cannot explain how happy I am with my outcome! My experience with Robert was remarkable. He took the time and energy to radically look into my case. Researching all the angles possible to prove my innocence. Other lawyers just take your money, and want you to prove guilty with the minimum sentence but Robert went above and beyond for me. His professionalism, and perseverance was outstanding. I highly recommend him. He is top quality! Unfortunately, few of my friends that had DUI’s in the past hired lawyers that didn’t care, and only took their money. Choosing Robert as your lawyer will not only give you peace of mind, but will save you thousands of dollars. Thank you, Robert.

Great work!
I'm from out of state and was charged in California back in 2011. Mr. Miller represented me very professionally and everything was handled while I was back home and I am pleased with the results. I have needed documents a couple of times since then, and he has been very helpful and quick to respond.

Fabulous Representation!
I am profoundly grateful for Robert Miller's outstanding representation. Mr Miller shared thoughts about my case even before I was technically his "client", and he offered a much-appreciated military discount, so I knew he cared more about people than money. Vigorously fights for the client! Negotiated with everyone involved to obtain best options available. Always well prepared. Provided expert guidance through a confusing legal maze so I always knew my case status and what to expect next. Incredibly prompt communication - very candid and straightforward, yet consistently positive and reassuring. Honored my request for email rather than phone due to raw throat. Extremely nice and very pleasant. I recommend Mr Miller's law firm in the strongest possible way and I will not even hesitate to contact them when I need a lawyer. Fabulous representation for their clients!"

Very Happy Client
I'm pleased, relieved and comfortable with the way my case was handled and know that it would have had a different outcome had Mr. Miller not represented me. He was knowledgeable, prompt and very patient with me and the details of my situation. He made sure I was aware of every aspect and understood the court system, since I'd never had any experience before. I would hire Mr. Miller again and highly recommend him.

I truly could not have asked for a better experience. Robert Miller was there at every point to guide me through the process. He has a calm and confident demeanor. I am not from the area, and I had no knowledge of how the court system works. Robert patiently explained the entire process to me, laying out all the possible options and advising me which would be most beneficial. He promptly answered my phone calls and emails, even on weekends! His knowledge of the justice system was remarkable. With it we were able to achieve the best possible outcome for this complicated case! I would recommend Robert Miller without hesitation to my friends or family should they need any legal advice.

Best DUI Attorney in OC!
I give my highest possible recommendation to Attorney Robert Miller. Mr. Miller is a wonderful attorney that makes your time feel valuable. In addition, Mr. Miller's pricing on his services are very reasonable while also negotiable at the same time. I cannot say enough great things about Mr. Miller, as he is extremely professional, informative, and prompt at answering any questions or concerns you may have. I truly value Mr. Miller's diligence and work ethic. Furthermore, Mr. Miller will also offer some insightful, sound legal advice should you need any. I trusted Mr. Miller wholehearted with my case, and he did not disappoint me one bit. Mr. Miller always made sure I was informed and kept me up-to-date on my case every step of the way. I could not thank Mr. Miller enough for giving me the best possible outcome. If anyone is unfortunate enough to get charged with a DUI, I definitely give my recommendation to have Robert Miller come to your rescue and defense!

Knowledgeable and Experienced Attorney
We had an very positive experience with Robert Miller. It’s clearly apparent that he is a knowledgeable and experienced attorney. He was very responsive with our inquires and kept us well informed. What sets Robert apart from other attorneys is his ability to translate and explain legal information into clear and concise statements for easy consumption by individuals who are not in the legal field. In addition to answering our direct questions, he provided us with additional information that we (unknowingly) needed to fully understand the situation and make an informed decision. We highly recommend Robert for legal consultation and services.

Recommendation for Robert Miller, Attorney at Law
I recommend Robert Miller for anyone with a second time DUI in Orange County. Attorney Miller is very well known in the courts at Harbor Justice Center and well-respected by his peers as well. I always seek a second, third, etc. opinion and in doing so found very strong recommendations for Attorney Miller. I believe I received the most favorable outcome for my case, enabling me to maintain my employment and continue providing for my family. Attorney Miller is extremely knowledgeable of applicable law and the inner workings of the courts, individual judges and alternative sentencing, which made the difference in my case. Attorney Miller was meticulous in guiding me through the complexities of my case, including the police report and DMV hearing process.
