Peoria Criminal & Family Law Attorney

Serving Peoria, Henry, McLean, Livingston, Tazewell & 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 (2012-2014)
  • 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)

Matthew Miller is an All Star!!! I contacted Matthew Miller after I was arrested in Peoria county in May 2014 for possession of 2 ounces of marijuana. I had never been in trouble like that before and I was very scared that I was going to go to Jail or have years of probation; putting my life on hold. Mr. Miller was incredibly responsive. He always contacted immediately whenever there was new information about my case. Matthew went out of his way for me. After helping me get my car back he was able to convince the prosecutor to drop the felony charge I had to a misdemeanor because the money I was paying to the county for my car was punishment enough. Not only that but he was able to get me in front of the judge right away on my court date. Even before the judge presented himself to the rest of the court room. I spent a total of one and a half hours which included paying my court fines and reporting to probation for my court supervision information. I really could not have asked for a better person to represent me. Matthew Miller truly helped me and never judged me as a person, he even stated he was happy to help good people like me. Matthew is my new hero and I encourage anybody who just made a mistake like I did to seek him out for help and support with their case.
