Attorney Rachel D. Miller

Your Fierce Advocate in El Dorado County

At Law Offices of Rachel D. Miller, I focus on misdemeanor and felony criminal defense, including serious charges such as driving under the influence, drug crimes, theft, assault, and more. Before opening my own practice in Placerville, CA, I spent nine years as a public defender helping individuals facing criminal matters get mental health treatment and drug treatment, including handling contested hearing and trials.

It was at the Public Defender’s Office that I gained valuable experience not only in criminal procedures and how the criminal justice system operates but in how to provide dedicated guidance to those facing serious criminal issues.

Benefit from my experience and knowledge as an El Dorado County criminal defense attorney. Call Law Offices of Rachel D. Miller at (530) 491-4630 to schedule your free initial consultation.
