Unbelievable!!! I have to confess that I was extremely sceptical about achieving a successful outcome, but was reassured all through the process by some excellent staff at Geoffrey Miller that there was hope where I could see none. Today all charges were dropped by the CPS and I can’t thank John Ruane and my Barrister enough for their outstanding efforts, life can finally get back to some normality after months of stress and I only have Geoffrey Miller to thank for this.

You are probably reading this because you are terrified, but you have come to the right place… When I was arrested almost 10 months ago my world fell apart, I didn’t know what to do, I couldn’t sleep and I was in panic mode. I called a friend at work who recommended Geoffrey Miller. After a lot of research and reading all the testimonials (twice) I finally plucked up courage and made the call. Jeannette Miller was the first person I spoke to, her warm and understanding nature without any judgement was something I was not expecting and immediately knew I made the right decision. Ellie Taylor (who is just amazing!!) was assigned my case worker, the expense needed for fees were a worry but the team worked with me throughout so I was never overwhelmed by costs (it is worth it believe me). After months of back and forth and trial dates being moved or adjourned, the CPS doing their best to derail everything, we finally went to trial. My barrister is someone I will never forget, he was just incredible and knew exactly what his plan was, I was so scared of losing my license as it would ruin my job, house and future work prospects… I shouldn’t have worried all those months, I was acquitted. I am truly grateful for the incredible work this team does. Please give them a call as soon as you can, that call could very well change your life.

I cannot put into words how grateful I am for the help Geoffrey Miller have given me. I got caught 7 years ago and then caught again 7 years later, which could have resulted in a 3 year ban (possibly more) and a fine and possibly community service. I run my own business and this had the potential to ruin my business and everything I have. I did a search for specialist solicitors and Geoffrey Millar came up first. I was obvs in a state of distress, but I spoke to Jeanette and she instantly put me at ease by talking through the event of arrest and assuring me that they had confidence to help. Naturally you feel sceptical I think that’s natural, however after the first call they kept in contact and it helped in making the decision to use Geoffrey Miller. I’ll be honest the fees can make you feel its a big risk, but then the success rate is high, so I took the plunge. John Ruane was my case manager and he always kept me informed and told me not to worry. It did take nearly a year to get to a decision (no fault of Geoffrey Miller, that’s just how it worked out) but I kept my licence during this time, which meant I could continue with my life, and I was looked after by some great people on preliminary court hearings and they too, were great! Today I have just been acquitted and case dismissed. Worth every penny, and now they are helping to get some court fees back, which is great! If you Need help, and you feel lost/stressed give these guys a call! and check out the success rate, it worked for me.

Consider what it means to keep a licence and not pay high premiums on insurance after your ban is over, and you will see its worth the cash!

Thank you John, and All the team.

My case was handled by Saskia Abbot. I called several times, often requesting reassurance following emails which I had received. Saskia always called me back as quickly as she could. She was extremely helpful and very informative throughout. Her emails also provided detailed information about my case. She raised several issues which could potentially secure my acquittal, which made me more confident that I was right to go with a ‘not guilty’ plea.

This case started 14 months ago when I received a call from a police station at 2.30 am telling me that my son had been charged with drink driving. He blew 54 by the road and 49 at the police station. I phoned Geoffrey Miller and spoke to Ellie Taylor. She was extremely professional and well informed and told me that we could do what I thought was impossible and plead not guilty and have a good chance of a successful outcome. We decided to go down this route although the case appeared utterly unremarkable. There were no obvious problems with the prosecution case and we were just hoping that the prosecution would fail to serve their evidence. This unfortunately did not happen and they were very proactive and provided us with everything but a proper copy of the cctv. We only received this on the morning of the first hearing date. Our barrister, the magnificent Phillip Lucas, reviewed the cctv at court and immediately spotted two potential case winning points. The case eventually came back about 10 months later. At the trial our barrister performed a cross examination of the police witnesses worthy of a court room tv drama. After this the judge asked if Mr Lucas would mind if the witnesses were taken out of order as he wanted our expert to give evidence “with a view to dramatically shortening the length trial”. This is what happened and an acquittal shortly followed! A fantastic result. This case has shown me that you can never know if you have got a good case until all the evidence has been reviewed by the experts at Geoffrey Miller. Whilst it was both a stressful and expensive experience it was extremely worthwhile and worth every penny. Thank you to John Ruane, Victoria Brennan and Saskia Abbott.

It is a year ago today that I was stopped for alleged drink driving, performed a roadside test and as a consequence breathalysed at the police station. But due to the breathalysing machine producing both a positive and a reading of “mouth alcohol”, a blood sample was requested, which I gave. I was terrified during the whole procedure as my occupation depends on my driving and I have a company car. The circumstances prevailing this are complicated, but I want to summarise my experience with the legal engagement and my lengthy history with Geoffrey Miller Solicitors.

When I left the police station the following morning, I panicked;- I could lose my job, my marriage, my home and of course my dignity and reputation. I did not have a breath result but upon leaving I noticed on the custody board, my name and a reading of “blew 93” I knew this was more than twice the legal limit without awaiting the results of the blood alcohol sample.

In a haze, I googled “drink driving” firstly to determine the seriousness of the offence and secondly to educate myself on what my position was, I had no idea Solicitors existed that specialised in motoring offences regarding drink driving. I read through the first advertised website who were “drink drive” specialists, a family run business, great testimonials, video’s and exceptional statistics. I rang this company and spoke to one of the Directors, who explained all the different scenarios and in particular that the “CPS” are very dysfunctional, unorganised and often just drop cases. I’m sure this may be true but it wasn’t my experience.

I signed up immediately in a panic, I didn’t consider the overall costs and was told to deal with the initial case it would be £1,500. Deal done.

I then had time to research the offence in detail and came across Geoffrey Miller Solicitors, which to be honest sounded very much like my already contracted firm. I called and spoke to Eleanor Taylor, Solicitor, who basically ran through very similar scenarios as my contracted solicitor, however she was more professional in her approach, explaining procedural errors that could secure my acquittal for a blood sample and less damning about the CPS. This worried me, I had already paid a substantial amount, so I really had to trust my contracted solicitor.

I received my blood sample reading of 182mg, the legal limit is 80mg therefore the ban is 17 – 22 months. This was inconceivable to me, I was unable to tell anyone of my position which caused me enormous anxiety, sleepless nights and dreadful stress. I would lose my JOB, my HOUSE, my LIFE and my husband would never forgive me.

I attended the first hearing to plead not guilty and was annoyed that the Director I spoke to had delegated me to another solicitor without talking me through this process. The solicitor that attended court with me was nervous in his demeanour and did not fill me with confidence in his overall manner at all.

The case worker assigned was flippant with me, didn’t return calls and gave me the impression that I was just another case, nothing special. My trial was scheduled for end of March 2018 which required another £4000. A week before the trial after no defence strategy explained and very little communication, my calls weren’t returned and I wasn’t a priority. I rang Geoffrey Miller in a complete panic. My whole life was dependent on this trial and I had no confidence in this solicitor. Within an hour Jeanette Miller called me back. The conversation with her transformed my state of mind knowing I could win the case with one of the most experienced Barristers in the country. I hadn’t even been assigned a Barrister, never mind a competent solicitor.

Of course, I had to agree a new contract but Jeanette took into consideration my previous experience, but I had to re-assign for GMS resources to start from the beginning, so in effect I had to “write” off the amount I’d already paid to the previous Solicitor. There is only one option you must take and that is sign with Geoffrey Millers and do not make the mistake I made and waste money and your licence with any other company.

Now, for the rest of my journey, it was horrific and terrifying but Ellie (assigned to me) assured me and listened to all my constant queries over and over again. I had an out of office number and she always and I mean always responded to me. Jeanette talked to me and re-assured me about my case and arranged 2 conference calls with my appointed Barrister. This gave me so much confidence understanding the procedures but most importantly the defence strategies. They were all honest and straightforward with me from the start.

The end of March hearing turned into a case management hearing and then trial was adjourned to July. Again, this meant more costs but by now I understood by July how my case would be presented and during the trial, I was completely amazed at this Barrister’s complete focus on my case. He had only started cross examining the Police Officer when the case was adjourned as they do not give up on an argument. I had a forensic expert assigned as well as a Barrister. I then had 5 more months to wait for a 2 day trial, again more expense for me to gain an acquittal. This was an extremely difficult case, to prove a verdict of not guilty, to a Judge that was not familiar with the case law, which was part of the Skeleton argument and it seemed throughout he would convict whatever.

A half time submission was made by my defence Barrister and I thought the case would be won. No, the Judge said there was a case to answer and I honestly expected my Barrister to loose his focus, enthusiasm and not change tactics so late in the day. But no, he was AMAZINGLY brilliant and put the Judge into a position that proving me guilty was an impossibility for the Crown. I was found not guilty and I have my life back after this terrifying ordeal. Ellie is frankly a star and a credit to her profession. I was made to feel important and cared for as a client, I could not recommend them enough.

I still can’t believe I am free and I am ecstatic that I made the right decision with the right team and we were successful. If you have what I had to lose then you have to realise this is an expensive investment, at their results but I can honestly say that Ellie and Jeanette personally cared about the outcome for me.

I would highly recommend Geoffrey Miller Solicitors to defend your case if anyone is looking to keep their Driving Licence, yes its absolutely true if they say you are in a good position of keeping your licence they mean it….

The whole experience has been very daunting but the team at Geoffrey Millers have been very supportive and reassuring that a positive outcome will happen, and yes it became a reality, I got to keep my Driving Licence… also a very valid lesson was learnt and that was not to ever drink and drive again.

When I was charged with driving with excess alcohol, after a blood test at the police station, I sat down and thought about the impact on my life the inevitable ban would have, not to mention a criminal record. I found Geoffrey Miller online and initially spoke to Tara, who was knowledgeable, compassionate and entirely non-judgmental. Tara explained my options and let me get a much clearer picture of how to proceed against this charge. I was initially unsure but Tara was never pushy, only explaining the best possible outcomes alongside the worst. When I did the sums, and looked online at their success rates in these types of cases, it became an easy choice. Once instructed, Tara was always available and happy to talk, to answer my questions and allay any fears I had. I am happy to report that the case was dismissed and I was free to drive home. Tara and the team, through their hard work and diligence, won my case for me with the best possible outcome. I would like to thank all the Geoffrey Miller team, especially Tara, and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone in a similar situation.

Happy with the outcome of acquittal in my drink driving case. I was kept updated all through the process by my case worker and I’m obviously elated with the results. A bit pricey but real value for money and worth every penny. Massive thanks.

Dear All,

I was charged with Drink & Drive and had an investigation of car-insurance fraud.
It was a complicated case as it was the 3rd charge of Drink & Drive with 2 of them in the past 2 years.
I was very worried about the court hearing because the punishment included a possible jail sentence.

I researched for the best UK firms and the first company I contacted was Geoffrey Miller.
Jeanette Miller, the Managing Director of the firm, was the first person to discuss my case and she took all the time I needed to go through my questions in a caring and supportive way, she sounded very competent and reassuring right away. Her approach was full of understanding, I felt she would make sure I received the best attention and service to my case.

I called another very well known firm but I didn’t received the same warm feeling of care I received from Jeanette so I called her back and decided to go ahead with Geoffrey Miller, my life was depending from the outcome of this hearing and I didn’t want to take any chance, I wanted somebody that truly cared about me, like a family member.

Jeanette did exactly was she promised and kept in touch with me along the process.

During the week before the trial, my caseworker, the London Director Tara Boyle, has been always very quick in answering all my questions and very supportive in the preparation of the hearing.
On the day of the trial I was panicking like never in my life but once I saw my barrister in action, Mr. John Dye, I understood why Geoffrey Miller is the best in their field: I was defended by ‘Superman’, watching John working the room, playing with the Judge and delivering a smashing result was a phenomenal show.

Geoffrey Miller Solicitors firm is truly remarkable, Jeanette Miller and Tara Boyle are two exceptional professional and John Dye is my new SUPERHERO!!.

Thanks a lot to everybody again.

My very best regards,

GM
