I'm an out-of-state non-CA resident, and while on business in CA, I was arrested for a DUI. After my arrest, I was referred to Rachel by a business friend in CA, and after contacting her, she quickly accommodated a personal meeting with me to discuss my situation. I was very impressed by her timeliness, her straightforward NO-BS candor, and her reasonable costs, and immediately hired her to represent me. Notwithstanding the sometimes maddening non-responsiveness and ever-changing complexity of the CA-DMV bureaucracy, she nonetheless very capably navigated this system for me, including making timely appearances in court on my behalf (since I lived out-of-state). Considering the very unfavorable circumstances that were attendant to my personal case, it was nonetheless resolved as favorably as could be reasonably expected. More impressive however, was her timely response and follow-up with me 10-years after that resolution, when a serious problem arose for me in my state of residence as a result of misinformation-error on the CA-DMV record concerning my 10-year-old case. Because the misinformation was very obvious (to me, at least), I thought that I could work directly with the CA-DMV to correct it. Turns out unfortunately, that this notion was/is quite literally IMPOSSIBLE!! After (2) enormously frustrating months, dozens of phone calls, and many hours of wasted time, I was NO CLOSER whatsoever to solving the problem. I contacted Rachel and she immediately researched it, and then got to work. While she also encountered much resistance and non-responsiveness, she persevered and finally (2) months later got it resolved for me. She understandably required additional costs to assist me, but those charges were extremely reasonable, and well worth the results. I not only strongly recommend Rachel as a fine, moral, and very capable Attorney, but one who I believe can apply the combination of her tenacity, charmingly subtle nature, and creatively effective talents, very successfully in almost any situation.

Ms. Miller explained everything I wanted to know. She was calm and understanding of the stress involved. She was able to bring the case to its best resolution as we had hoped.

It took me 6 months to Find Rachel. She actually listened to me and recalled what I had told her. My case was a special one because of the protected program I and my wife are in. Most all the other lawyers cared about was the money and they did not recall any details about the case even after I spent hours talking to some. The next week they forgot who I was & what the case was about. Most Criminal Lawyers treated me like I was guilty before they even heard what happened. Rachel is what a Criminal Lawyer should be.
