With the Law Offices of Rachel D. Miller, you have more than an attorney. You have an advocate who will fight to help you get the best outcome possible in your case.
How do I accomplish this?
- I consider how the charges affect all aspects of your life, not just potential fines or jail time, and I advocate for solutions that leave you in the best situation possible.
- I know how the courts in El Dorado County operate, the nuances in the law, the ancillary services or alternative options available, and have relationships with district attorneys that helps me facilitate successful outcomes.
- I tell you what you need to hear even if it isn't always what you want to hear, because you deserve the truth. You should not be surprised by consequences you didn't expect.
- I promise to fight for the best result. I don't accept the first plea agreement offered because it would close your case. I only advise you to sign one if it is in your best interest. If you have a better chance with trial, that's where I will go for you.
I Never Lose Sight of What's Important
Calling the legal field competitive is an understatement. With a few keystrokes and one click of the search button, you can find dozens of law firms that offer criminal defense services in El Dorado County. Unfortunately, in the battle for business, too often the most important person ends up getting lost. That's you, my client.
My career began as a criminal defense attorney in El Dorado County. The dizzying schedule honed my negotiation and litigation skills exponentially. For me, the thing that stood out most in those 13 years was that behind each criminal charge is a real person with rights, struggles, frustrations, and fears all their own. They all had to live with the outcome of my representation.
That time taught me to be an advocate for my clients. I not only help them resolve their criminal case, I am passionate about helping them fight for solutions that consider all aspects of their lives. Do they have children that rely on them? Do they have limited finances? Are they in the U.S. on a visa or green card? Do they struggle with addiction?
You Always Benefit from My Passion
My passion for helping clients drove participation in specialty treatment courts, like drug, behavioral health and Veterans court. It continues to drive my efforts in private practice.
