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 (2012-2015)
  • 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)

Summer camp solutions. Summer camp 2015 was a bummer for me until I had a consolation with Mr. Miller. I was looking at a class 1 and a class 3 dealing and possession charge and was looking at a LOT of time in prison. Mr. Miller presented me with a possible solution that was not only potentially the best possible outcome I could imagine, it was a fraction of the cost of any other attorney quoted me. Needless to say Mr. Miller delivered exactly as we hoped for and I couldn't have been more pleased with his services. Thank you again:)))
