    I recently found myself in one of the worst situations I had ever been in... a DUI. I was certain that the career I had worked very hard for was going to be over. I had asked for advice from others who had been in situations similar to mine and one close friend had actually stated, quite firmly, that I shouldn't waste my time or money on a lawyer-- that a lawyer wouldn't really help my situation out any. My friend's advice was actually terrible advice. I quickly found out that the representation of a lawyer (a really good lawyer) during such a frightening time is priceless. I was in absolute panic and despair and I knew I needed help. I researched lots of lawyers and I came across the excellent reviews of The Miller Law Firm so I called for a free consultation. The moment I spoke to Chris I knew he was going to be amazing. He offered immediate comfort and solace during a time when I needed it the most. His concern and reassurance allowed me to relax a little knowing he was on my side with my best interests in mind. He was available for questions and concerns the entire time we were working on my case. He was extremely professional and knowledgeable about the law and I honestly trusted his counsel 100%. He took his time to make sure I understood everything that was going on and what I could expect. I was incredibly pleased with the outcome of my case and I would recommend Chris to anyone. I hope I never have to need the help of a lawyer again, but the first person I would call if I do need help is Chris Miller. He's an amazing lawyer... seriously.

    I hired Chris when I was going through a very difficult situation. He quickly eased my concerns (and anxiety) by carefully explaining the various legal options we could pursue. I was impressed with his knowledge and compassion - and he diligently worked to secure the best outcome possible for us. I would highly recommend him.

    During an extremely sensitive time when all hope seemed to be lost, Christopher Miller showed me the light at the end of the tunnel. He handled the case professionally by explaining the logic he uses in and out of the courtroom. He provided the necessary steps to win the case and after following them, knew he did not lead me astray. He was comforting about the case as a whole from the beginning and never doubted me for a minute. Chris was always available to talk and address any concerns that I may have had throughout my time working with him. He was able to address not only myself, but my family members as well in order to further explain the process and the ways in which we could win! In the end in court we came to the best result possible and it was all because of his professionalism and the ways in which he handled himself in and out of the courtroom. I have never had to deal with another attorney, but I imagine that none would be nearly as incredible to work with as Mr.Miller. Overall throughout a very traumatic time, Chris made the whole process extremely easy and smooth from start to finish. I would not have wanted to work with anyone else because I know no one could have done the job that he accomplished!

    The Best Lawyer in Los Angeles
    Could not be more satisfied with Chris Miller! My father is an attorney in North Carolina and advised that I call Chris to help me with my case. He is a young attorney with a lot of energy, who cares a lot about his clients, and he will not let you down. I have recommended several of my friends to Chris Miller to help with their cases. Let's face it Los Angeles is a crazy place, and you need a great attorney to help maintain the peace. Who you gonna call? Chris Miller!

    A Lawyer's Lawyer , Highly Recommend!
    Chris Miller got out of very sticky situation that I did not deserve to be in, and he made that clear with the county. He knew exactly the type of situation and what solutions were necessary in order to clear my charges. I faced up to a year in county jail and he was able to have all charges dismissed. Quick thinking, thoughtful and understanding. He made it easy without killing me financially. Thanks man, I really owe you one

    CALL CHRIS!
    I am so happy I found Chris he has helped me and my boyfriend. I found myself in quite a predicament with my case and also worries about my DACA. Chris genuinely explained what needed to happen and how we were going to achieve it. He explained to me what types of documents he needed of me to present to the court. I was more worried about my DACA and what would happened. Chris told me not to worry he was going to do everything he could to keep my record clean and he did! He was able to achieve a dismal!! I was relived that everything was going to be okay. Chris is the best he listens to his clients and does what he can to achieve the best results. Chris thank you so much! I am happy you have helped me, my boyfriend and a couple of other friends.

    Excellent Attorney
    After hearing nothing but great things about Christopher from a friend who was previously a client, I had no doubts that he would be of great help. During such a hard time Christopher made the whole process flow so smoothly and effortlessly. I am not an easy person to please, let alone work with but he is hands down one of the best lawyers I have been so lucky to work with. He not only helped me cope, but was willing to speak with my family during this time of need. With every phone call, text and email, he was always there to make sure I was in the loop. He is a brilliant guy, it's easy to tell. You can tell he really loves his job and truly wants to help. I couldn't imagine hiring a different lawyer for anything else.

    Mr. Miller was hired to defend my son on a criminal case which could have had long lasting, adverse life changing consequences. His attention to details, dedication to his clients, knowledge of the law, provided us with the peace of mind of knowing we had proper representation with our case. I will not hesitate hiring Mr. Miller again for any other issues to arise in the future. I highly recommend The Miller Law Firm. Their honest approach and professionalism are second to none.

    About six months ago I got charged with a DUI, a hit and run, and filing a false police report. I was pretty sure it was over for me, my goose had been cooked. In spite of having some not so great experiences with lawyers in the past, I decided to contact Chris for a consultation. Mostly just because of his profile picture. From the start Chris was very honest about the expectations of the case and didn't shy away from sparing me any harsh truths. None the less, he took on the challenge of proving those truths wrong. Throughout the ordeal, Chris was compassionate, patient, thorough, very clear with communication, but above all else he was driven. Driven to get the best defense possible for me. After all was done, I got off with a slap on the wrist compared to what I was charged for. And even though I was more than satisfied with the outcome, I could tell that Chris didn't even like that I got the wrist slap. If you're looking for more than just a buffer between you and the judge then Chris Miller is the guy to hire.

    There are very few people in the world who garner a five star review. Christopher Miller is one of them. From the moment we first spoke, I had no doubt he was the kind of professional I needed to take my case. A month (or so) ago, I received a DUI and had been looking for a lawyer to hire. After chatting with other professionals, I began to feel more like a “job” and less like a person. Speaking with Chris was the first time I felt human again. He was genuinely interested in who I was and the events that led up to the DUI. He explained his role as my (potential) lawyer and the ends and outs of navigating a DUI charge in court. He assured me I could trust him to work hard AND get me the best deal possible, if I chose to bring him on board. I did and looking back I’m not sure how I would have made it through this process without him. I like communication. That’s what I wrote to him after we agreed to work together. I stress when there is something I don’t know. Chris understood this and went above and beyond to explain every detail throughout the entire process. I never felt in the dark and had no moments of panic or tension. During each step Chris shared his plans, how he intended to go forward and what I could expect. All I can say is WOW! During sentencing Chris was true to his word. He worked hard and despite the severity of my case, Chris proved to be an excellent negotiator, which ensured his (our) success. I don’t have enough words of thanks and praise for The Miller Law Firm. I would recommend him to anyone in need of his services.

How did you get started doing this type of work?
Criminal defense has been my lifelong passion. I immersed myself in the study of criminal law while a student at USC, and in law school.

Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
There is nothing better than receiving happy feedback from a client. This one was truly special: "I had a mental health crisis and was charged with a felony… [Christopher] Miller was able to secure me a spot in the Antelope Valley Veterans Court program where I was directed to obtain intensive mental health services … Because of his hard work my charges were dropped and now two years later I am graduating college instead of being released from prison.” This case was hard fought. And after preliminary hearing, we were able to transfer the case to Veterans Court. This collaborative justice program provided an opportunity for my client to avoid incarceration and receive the treatment she needed. I am proud to say that she graduated college this past year – right around the time she would have been released from prison. Her record is now sealed and she is able to pursue her dreams of social work.
