My life and freedom was on the line - and I could only choose ONE criminal defense attorney and thank GOD I chose Tracy. I did a ton of research and spoke to other attorneys and people in the legal profession and she was a the top of everyone's list. Not only is she a legal genius, but she really cares and defended me like I was one of her family members. She was super-responsive and very proactive with me and all parties and was able to get my case dismissed in days! She is the hardest working person I know and I would recommend her to anyone.

I wish my story was unique, unfortunately it probably is not and I hope my testimony can help others make a good decision at a difficult time. I am a 12+ year law enforcement officer so I am no stranger to the courtroom and few attorneys scare me. But when I was served with a temporary restraining order, I needed help. Restraining orders take on a whole different beast when you are a member of the law enforcement community because a TRO will take your gun away and render you useless to your profession. After hearing about my plight, a fellow officer who had dealt with a similar situation recommended Attorney Tracy Miller to me.
I was served with a TRO solely because it was a WEAPON a former girlfriend used to cunningly attack me and threaten to take my livelihood away. I was not in a good place to face scrutiny by the courts and my profession.
I sought legal help from Attorney Tracy Miller. I found she immediately understood and recognized the situation for what it was; an attack that lacked merit and was fueled by emotion and motivated by retaliation. Tracy provided me with the feeling of confidence that only comes from a skilled trial lawyer. She is precisely articulate and sharply intelligent; Tracy knows the law. Tracy organized a game plan that offered many viable solutions. She was honest and straight forward with me about my case, explaining the strengths and areas of weakness.
As we worked through my case for approximately three weeks, it was clear Tracy owned my problem and was seeking nothing short of justice for me. She kept in constant communication with me by email, text and phone calls. We were successful and the TRO was withdrawn with prejudice.
Tracy’s approach is professional and aggressive, but when you are swimming in the legal system that can be subjectively swayed you want a shark for an attorney that will overwhelm the opposition. What impressed me most was her courtroom demeanor. She is no stranger to the courtroom and she wastes no time to hold the court and opposition accountable.
There is nothing worse than feeling like you have a target on your back, but when you have Tracy Miller working on your side you can expect an experienced, professional and aggressive attorney to show up to defend you. I could not recommend her more. Thank you Tracy for being who you are and owning your skills.

Tracy recently helped me with a Domestic Violence case and she was so great - she was professional, and knew everyone in the courthouse. She was strategic, knowledgeable and I would recommend her to ANYONE who is going through this. She is the BEST! Very responsive and stayed up all night working on my case. I couldnt have made it through this tragic event without her help and guidance.

I have co-counseled many cases with Tracy in which family law issues crossover with criminal defense and/or victim (Marsy's Law) representation. She is experienced, thorough, always prepared and most of all, obtains excellent results. I strongly endorse her for criminal defense, victim's rights and family law domestic violence prosecution and defense cases.
