Peoria Criminal & Family Law Attorney

Serving Peoria, Henry, McLean, Livingston, Tazewell, Putnam & Woodford Counties

Rated Superb on Avvo

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.

Often, 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 the following:

  • 10.0 Avvo Superb Rating for Criminal Defense, DUI & Divorce
  • Avvo Clients' Choice Award (2012-2015)
  • National Trial Lawyers: Top 100 Trial Lawyers (2013-2015)
  • Former Assistant State's Attorney for Peoria County
  • ASLA: Top 40 Under 40 Criminal Defense Lawyer (2014-2015)

I Highly Recommend Mr. Miller My parents and I first came in contact with Mr. Miller a few months ago (May of 2012). Being unfamiliar with how the entire process goes within the system when an arrest is made, my parents had contacted Mr. Miller for some legal advice due to a very poor decision I had made which resulted in my arrest (two felony charges; possession of a controlled substance and intent to deliver). Speaking on my parent's behalf, they had said that in comparison to the few other lawyers they had spoken to; Mr. Miller was very professional, straightforward, and very knowledgeable about the situation I had gotten myself into. I am extremely pleased that Mr. Miller was the one who had helped my family and I get through the situation at hand. Throughout the entire process Mr. Miller kept us informed and up to date about what was going on, what could happen, and what was most likely going to happen. Mr. Miller is very professional, understanding, non-judgmental, and very knowledgeable about the criminal justice system. I appreciated that whenever speaking to him about my legal situation, he knew my case, another major factor which stands out was that he was pretty much always available to speak to when trying to get in contact with him and if for some reason I was unable to get a hold of him, he always returned phone calls back right away and also responded to e-mails quickly, he never kept me waiting for a reply! I couldn't be happier with the outcome of my case, which resulted in both of my charges being completely dropped. Thank you Mr. Miller!
