Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)
You have the right to represent yourself in court. However, before deciding to represent yourself, you should understand the risks and benefits. The law can be complex and actually can change frequently. If you are inexperienced and untrained in law, you are likely not to recognize all your legal problems nor know how to solve them. Although some legal guides that summarize laws are publicly available, they often are not detailed enough for preparing a legal case, and would not take into account your individual circumstances, and your state and local laws. Acting without the advice of a lawyer can result in unexpected legal consequences that can be difficult and expensive to avoid. Our experienced lawyers will help you identify whether you have a problem that requires legal assistance, and specifically what to do about it.
If you’ve been charged with drunk driving or driving under the influence (DUI) in PA, you will need help just understanding the complex charges you are facing. Remember, if you are charged with a DUI in Pennsylvania, you are actually facing prosecution on two levels: 1) criminal penalties and 2) civil penalties (which could result in loss of driving privileges). If our attorneys take your case, it is because we really believe we can help you avoid negative legal consequences, or disruption in your employment, and/or a compromise of your freedom. We will examine all records concerning your traffic citation, consider whether the blood or breath test was accurate, and determine if there was proof of intoxication. If you are charged with more than one DUI offense, we will explain your options involved with penalties such as suspension of your driving license. We will explain how refusing to take a blood alcohol test, if that occurred, would affects your driving record.

What our clients are
saying about Miller Law
I have been a client of the Miller Law Firm since April of 2013. I was referred by a dear friend of mine because I was looking for a divorce attorney I could really trust that would fight for me. My first meeting with Francis Miller was one of warmth, care and true concern for my situation. I felt very comfortable and welcomed as I spoke with Mr. Miller, Holly Samuel, Tracey Norcini and the rest of the staff. I did not even hire Mr. Miller as my attorney at the first meeting, but he said “I am here for you Marcia when you’re ready”.
I really feel he is a genuine individual who has such a passion for what he does, as well as them all. When I needed them, they were readily available, and also very affordable. I feel like I am connected to a family with the Miller law firm, everyone is so nice and also very funny. We have a great time when I am there, and I have also had the opportunity to refer some other people I know to this firm, and will continue to so. They really do get the job done, and they do it right the first time! Thank you all for a wonderful experience even in the midst of a divorce, I have never been more confident.
Fran Miller has handled all of my business legal needs. From forming a new corporation for a separate company I started; rewriting my sales contracts to give me better liability protection; defending lawsuits that were filed against my company; collecting deliquent accounts receivables; negotiating contracts with landlords and vendors. Fran is always accessible and he has my full vote of confidence.
Fran Miller handled my divorce with the utmost efficiency, professionalism and diplomacy. When I replaced my previous attorney with Fran, my divorce was already started and floundering. My divorce was complicated financially and included unique support and custody issues. Fran expedited the process, worked extremely well with the opposing counsel and settled my case within 5 months. But most of all, he provided me with the comfort level and confidence that I would make it through this difficult time, accomplish the goals related to my children and financial well-being, and move forward to a healthy and happy future. I would recommend him highly to anyone seeking legal counsel for family matters.
Mr. Miller represented me for DUI which was not my first offense. I was facing substantial jail time. Mr. Miller investigated the case thoroughly, hired an investigator who interviewed witnesses and we were able to show that the Commonwealths witnesses were mistaken as to what they heard and saw. I met with Mr. Miller many times as we prepared for trial. On the eve of the trial the Commonwealth called Mr. Miller and stated that they were dropping the case. If there is a valid defense to a criminal case, Mr. Miller will find it!
