Highly Knowledgeable, Knows the Law and Communicates it Clearly
Roy Miller is an exceptional attorney! He knows the law very well and can communicate it very clearly. When you hire an attorney you want someone to articulate your needs to the court and he can do just that! He is the professional you want at your side in a time of need!

Closed my case well
Roy was there during the past phase of my case. He was sharp, precise and courteous. He communicated the issues clearly and represented me very well for the latter part of my case. The outcome was excellent and I am grateful he was there to see me through a positive outcome. The team of Hansen/Miller is the team you want when you need great representation. They are straight shooters who know how to vigorously defend their clients interests. Roy is a pro!

Roy helped me with a DUI/Hit and run
Roy was very helpful with this case. He was able to make a deal with the judge that I just do work release instead of sitting in jail. He was also able to make a deal with them to put me on informal probation instead of formal. He is an awesome attorney and really cares about his clients. I will definitely go back to Roy if I need to and I suggest him if you need some help with the legal system.

Very Thorough and Articulate
Mr. Miller defended our son in a battery and assault case. We hired another lawyer first. This particular lawyer was inexperienced and we soon found ourselves looking for another attorney. Our son was acquitted of all charges thanks to Mr. Miller. He was on point, articulate and very thorough. Highly recommended.
