BUSINESSMAN FACING EX-WIFE’S FALSE CLAIMS IN FAMILY & CRIMINAL COURT:

 

Tracy Miller specializes in the gray area of criminal law that overlaps family law (in divorce and Domestic Violence). This is also where other criminal and family lawyers fear to tread.

Tracy Miller handled my family law and criminal matters strategically so each played off the other to gain me optimal results. She saved me from innumerable amounts of grief despite my ex-wife’s numerous attempts to gain further tactical advantages in our custody case. I went through 9 attorneys before I met Tracy and she was the only one who delivered what she promised. She is worth every penny. I highly recommend her. – Norm*

 

OUTCOME: RESTORED and EXPANDED CUSTODIAL and VISITATION RIGHTS; further CRIMINAL ALLEGATIONS by ex-wife REJECTED by District Attorney’s Office; Two criminal Domestic Violence cases “expunged” / Motion to Withdraw Guilty Pleas GRANTED.

 


 

POLICE OFFICER WITH JOB and GUN AT STAKE:

I wish my story was unique, unfortunately it probably is not and I hope my testimony can help others make a good decision at a difficult time. I am a 12+ year law enforcement officer so I am no stranger to the courtroom and few attorneys scare me. But when I was served with a temporary restraining order, I needed help. Restraining orders take on a whole different beast when you are a member of the law enforcement community because a TRO will take your gun away and render you useless to your profession. After hearing about my plight, a fellow officer who had dealt with a similar situation recommended Attorney Tracy Miller to me.

 

I was served with a TRO solely because it was a WEAPON a former girlfriend used to cunningly attack me and threaten to take my livelihood away. I was not in a good place to face scrutiny by the courts and my profession.

 

I sought legal help from Attorney Tracy Miller. I found she immediately understood and recognized the situation for what it was; an attack that lacked merit and was fueled by emotion and motivated by retaliation. Tracy provided me with the feeling of confidence that only comes from a skilled trial lawyer. She is precisely articulate and sharply intelligent; Tracy knows the law. Tracy organized a game plan that offered many viable solutions. She was honest and straightforward with me about my case, explaining the strengths and areas of weakness.

 

As we worked through my case for approximately three weeks, it was clear Tracy owned my problem and was seeking nothing short of justice for me. She kept in constant communication with me by email, text and phone calls. We were successful and the TRO was withdrawn with prejudice.

 

Tracy’s approach is professional and aggressive, but when you are swimming in the legal system that can be subjectively swayed you want a shark for an attorney that will overwhelm the opposition. What impressed me most was her courtroom demeanor. She is no stranger to the courtroom and she wastes no time to hold the court and opposition accountable.

 

There is nothing worse than feeling like you have a target on your back, but when you have Tracy Miller working on your side you can expect an experienced, professional and aggressive attorney to show up to defend you. I could not recommend her more. Thank you Tracy for being who you are and owning your skills. – OC Copper*

 

OUTCOME: RESTRAINING ORDER DISMISSED; Client/Police Officer’s EMPLOYMENT REINSTATED.

 


 

ATTORNEY with LICENSE, JOB, and CHILD CUSTODY AT STAKE:

Tracy Miller handled the most important case of my legal career – I am an attorney. Tracy defended me against false domestic violence and child abuse claims by my ex-husband. My case included defending false claims in family court via a restraining order my ex-husband filed against me, as well as defending the same claims in criminal court. Before I hired Tracy, the court stripped me of visitation with my young child and set the case for trial. I was in position to lose my job, license to practice law, and custody of my young child if I did not prevail. As an attorney myself, I researched thoroughly to find the best lawyer to handle my case. Tracy came highly recommended to me from fellow attorneys and judges. I was told she was the best and only attorney in town skilled to handle my type of case since she has extensive experience in the two areas essential to my case – – the criminal sector (she’s a former Deputy District Attorney and currently a criminal defense lawyer); and the civil sector (she’s currently a seasoned family law restraining order lawyer). She knows how to strategize between these two areas of law to which resulted in the successful outcome of my case. She worked endless hours until I got my child, job and license back. She is professional and would not stop working on my case to make it the best it could be under the circumstances. The results I achieved under her guidance speak for themselves. I cannot thank you enough Tracy! – *Cheryl

BUSINESSWOMAN FIGHTING EX-HUSBAND’S CLAIMS IN FAMILY & CRIMINAL COURT:

Tracy recently helped me with a Domestic Violence case in Orange County and she was so great – she was professional, and knew everyone in the courthouse. She was strategic, knowledgeable and I would recommend her to ANYONE who is going through this. She is the BEST! Very responsive and stayed up all night working on my case. I couldn’t have made it through this tragic event without her help and guidance. – Terri M.*

FATHER SEEKS RESTRAINING ORDER TO PROTECT HIS CHILDREN:

Tracy filed a domestic violence restraining order on my behalf (and on behalf of my small children) in the Orange County Superior Court. She is a wonderful lawyer. She knows the strategy in this area of law where custody of children and their protection is at stake. Before I found Tracy, I attempted to hire other lawyers but they turned me down because of the complexity of my case. Based on my experience I believe Tracy the best lawyer in town concerning the area of domestic violence and child custody. If I ever face these issues again I will be sure to contact Tracy as no other attorney would compare to her skill or case strategy. She is a very responsible person and I truly respect the way she maintains professional and serious about her work. Thank you Tracy! – Mr. Ahn*

CLIENT DEFENDING EX-WIFE’S FALSE CLAIMS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE:

Tracy Miller is the very best lawyer I’ve had the pleasure of dealing with. I hired her to handle the defense of my ex-wife’s false domestic violence claims. She treated my case as though I were a close personal friend who desperately needed her help, which I did. She willingly put in the long hours and time needed to properly handle my case. It is my belief that she does this with ALL her cases in order of emergency. I could not have handled my case without her help. – Lou*

 

OUTCOME: Domestic Violence RESTRAINING ORDER filed against Client DISMISSED; further CRIMINAL ALLEGATIONS by ex-wife REJECTED by District Attorney’s Office

 


 

Doctor’s Felony Threat To Kill And DV With Injury Case REJECTED By DA’s Office:

I am a physician in my early 30s, have no criminal record, and before I knew it after an argument with my girlfriend I was in handcuffs and required to bail out at $50,000 before I was released from jail. Not only was I facing severe legal charges, but my way of life was at risk, as my professional medical license, which I had worked for 15+ years to attain, was also potentially compromised with looming charges.

I desperately reached out to various attorneys who would be able to defend my case. They ranged from those who painted doom and gloom scenarios which attempted to scare me into attaining their services to those who presented my situation as one which was the equivalent of petty crime and assured me of grandiose “sweetheart” deals they could maneuver. I felt I didn’t connect with anyone and couldn’t trust.

I found Attorney Tracy Miller, owner of Domestic Violence Legal Center®, after hearing about her unique skillset which consisted of tours of service as a former prosecutor and currently a criminal defense attorney. After our initial conversation, it was very apparent that Tracy was not only extremely competent with her knowledge base, but she also had a unique insight with respect to how the prosecution would proceed through her years of work as prosecutor.

She took her time with my story with great attention to every amazing detail and quickly developed an aggressive plan setting it into play immediately. Her assertive approach was encouraging and I felt I had a strong advocate fighting for me.

Tracy understood how vulnerable I was emotionally, she took the initiative and provided direction, stability, confidence, and hope. She was patient with me and offered support when I became anxious or grew concerned. She called in to “check” in on me when she sensed I was slow to respond. As my case evolved I found myself gaining confidence and I was well on my path to emotional recovery as well as legal recovery.

As I saw how devoted and invested Tracy was with my case, I too was motivated to follow up and provide her all the tools she asked for to defend my case. Distinct to Tracy’s practice and unlike other large firms, Tracy is the sole owner of Domestic Violence Legal Center®, only choosing amongst the most experienced of attorneys to work with her to maintain her stellar track record. Her business model allows for an extremely selectively case load allowing her to manage nearly every case and give each client the personal attention they need. Her most endearing trait is her honesty and clear motives. She takes the time to explain all nuances which arise.

Attorney Miller’s aggressive approach and legal acumen coupled with great emotional maturity was perfectly catered toward taking care of not only my legal case but also my fractured emotional state.
She was not only able to successfully defend my case and save my professional career and license, she was able to set me on the path to recovery with a great head start.

Attorney Miller’s unique background as a former prosecutor, sharp legal insight, assertive and aggressive approach, availability to be selective with her case load, which allows for devotion of appropriate time to each client, and most importantly the emotional maturity to understand the totality of a client as a person, beyond just another case, is liberating and precipitates confidence and hope at a time when usually both are poor. Attorney Tracy Miller is strong advocate you need on your side!

MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL AVOIDED 5 YEAR RESTRAINING ORDER:

I continue to work as a registered nurse due to the aggressive representation I received at Domestic Violence Legal Center®. My ex-girlfriend made one of the worst false allegations one could face by claiming “rape.” Attorney Miller carefully charted a course for my case by employing strategies the very moment I retained her office. Attorney Miller is a seasoned trial lawyer and was ready to litigate the case, but due to the sensitivity, I requested she attempt to settle with my ex-girlfriend. My ex refused any settlement and stated she would be asking the Court to issue a “permanent” restraining order against me. Attorney Miller out-lawyered the opposition and concisely cross-examined my ex-girlfriend who was a very “believable victim” and even cried on the stand during trial! Attorney Miller requested the Court grant a motion for directed verdict which was GRANTED. I never had to testify and the case was DISMISSED. Without Domestic Violence Legal Center®, I do not believe I would have prevailed. Thank you Attorney Miller and Domestic Violence Legal Center® for all your hard work! -Ari S.*

OUTCOME: Motion for Directed Verdict GRANTED. Domestic Violence Restraining Order DISMISSED.

 


Other Client Reviews – further CRIMINAL MATTERS

I signed Tracy as my lawyer after my previous lawyer made me lose hope of my freedom concerning criminal allegations filed against me. She took very good care of my case. She got me the best results that I wasn’t expecting to achieve. I am FREE NOW! She works very hard and is a professional, very knowledgeable lawyer. I highly recommend Tracy Miller.

Tracy handled my criminal matter. Nobody wants to be in a compromising legal position to where they have to hire an attorney. But when that moment arrives you need an experienced lawyer that knows exactly what they’re doing and has success doing so. An attorney that will look you dead in the eye and tell you exactly what you’re options are, what the best strategy for your case will be, and the best way of implementing that plan so that you may have a successful outcome. Little did I know I would be getting all of this and a lot more! Tracy stayed on top of my cases as they progressed along keeping me updated via mail, email, telephone and sometimes even text messages. The peace of mind that comes along with hiring Tracy for your cases is undoubtedly PRICELESS. It was this peace of mind that allowed me to continue working without any distractions thanks to Tracy’s diligent work on my cases. I cannot put in words how grateful I am for coming across such a beautiful person who happens to be my lawyer. I love her for all she has done for me and my family. Thank you Tracy for everything. Truly heaven sent!!
