Peoria Attorney: Criminal and Family Law

Serving Peoria, Henry, McClean, Livingston, Tazewell, & Woodford Counties

Welcome to Miller Law Offices, P.C. I am Attorney Charles Matthew Miller, and I am proud to offer compassionate representation for family law and criminal defense cases in Illinois. Client satisfaction is always my goal. Oftentimes, attorneys view a client as just another case to handle. I guarantee that I make my best effort to treat my clients with dignity and respect. I decided to become a defense attorney because as a prosecutor I saw far too many people being taken advantage of by the system and being represented poorly. I decided I wanted to do something about that.

Additionally, I believe that most judges and juries see the defendant in a criminal case as just another case. I work very hard to humanize my clients in the eyes of the authorities so that they will care about my client and be empathetic to my client's plight. I am a trial attorney who is always prepared to take cases to trial.

Some of my accomplishments include:

  • 10.0 Avvo Superb Rating for Criminal Defense, DUI and Divorce
  • Avvo Clients' Choice Award for 2012, 2013, & 2014
  • National Trial Lawyers: Top 100 Trial Lawyers for 2013, 2014 & 2015
  • Former assistant state's attorney for Peoria County
  • American Society of Legal Advocates: Top 40 Under 40 Criminal Defense Lawyer for 2014 & 2015

Excellent Experience….Mr. Miller took all my stress away! I had never needed a lawyer before so I was unsure what to expect. Due to multiple traffic violations, the judge denied me the use of a public defender. I hired Mr. Miller and he was able to consolidate multiple court dates for me to save me time and hassle! All my cases were resolved swiftly and painlessly. I no longer had to worry with Mr. Miller representing me. I recommend him 100% and am incredibly pleased with the outcome!
