I was exceptionally satisfied and reassured from the outset. I would not have had the desired outcome without the advice I received. It helped calm the situation and provide a clear direction in an otherwise challenging situation. The court procedure was clearly explained to me, helping me to understand what to expect. I was kept up to date throughout, especially during the day when decisions had to be made.
I would absolutely recommend Millars Solicitors to friends, family or anyone else. If you have any risk of losing your licence then use Millars Solicitors. I was so please I did. It was a great decision to get in touch with them and let them handle the case. Brilliant.
Paul - Totter Avoids Ban / Speeding - Company Director - November 2017
The advice was excellent considering I was extremely nervous and unfamiliar with court proceedings and the law. Carl broke it down into language I understood and was only too happy to answer any questions I had. He even went through the possible scenarios that may happen and what paperwork I would need to have for our next meeting. Carl’s was friendly and reassuring which put me at ease straight away. At the end of our first meeting I knew what to expect and what my next steps were which took away some of my fears
The court proceedings were explained in detail to me as I needed to know the complete format in order to deal with my anxiety. Carl painted a complete picture as to what the court room would look like and the roles of the people present. He even explained what would happen on the day where I would meet my barrister his name and his role on the day. Carl also went through exactly what I would be required to say along with the barrister, to the point of the sentence procedure and how to leave the court. He also told me how I would need to pay the fine and what time frame I would be expected to pay it in. I was extremely grateful for so much detail as it allowed me to prepare for the day and put in place support for my anxiety.
I would highly recommend Millars Solicitors to a friend if in need of any legal advice in the future.
AD - Disqualification Avoided - High Speed - October 2017

I am over the moon with outcome of my case but know I would not have got this result without Carl. I would definitely recommend Millars Solicitors for anyone needing legal advice.

Mr D - Drink Driving - IT Consultant - August 2017
The whole process, along with each option and their possible outcomes, was explained in great detail. Carl regularly kept in touch over my case updates.

Anonymous - Totting Up 21 Penalty Points - Not Disqualified - Youth Worker - July 2017
The advice received was knowledgable, frank and honest. There were no false hopes as to the potential outcome. All the options and court room procedure were clearly explained. our family had never attended court before, so the prospect was daunting. It would have been infinitely more stressful for James and us to attend Court and make representation on our own. It was particularly helpful to know the mitigation which could be put forward and which would be viewed favourably by the Magistrates, and equally what information would not. We felt the mitigation was a significant factor in their decision to impose the minimum disqualification. I would recommend Millars Solicitors to a friend or family member in the future.

Mr D - Avoiding Licence Revocation - New Driver - March 2017
We were very satisfied with our initial advice, so much so that we travelled 2 and a half hours up the country to meet with Carl. We were happy with Carl as he was incredibly professional and thorough with the information he gave. We were both incredibly anxious on the day as neither of us had been through anything like this before but Carl eased the stress by explaining what to expect. We strongly believe that Carl got us the best possible outcome, given the charges, in the way he presented us and himself. I would strongly recommend Millars Solicitors to anybody needing advice and representation in court. From the bottom of our hearts we would like to thank Carl for working with us, his professionalism, mannerism and self presentation far outshone every other solicitor in the courts that day. Just fantastic service and fully recommend to anyone. Andrew And Gemma - Dental Technicians - Drink Driving - March 2017
Carl listened well and gave me his honest assessment of the likely outcome of my case. I found this early clarity very reassuring. After asking Carl to represent me I mailed all the relevant paperwork through and we followed this up the next Tuesday with a detailed phone call, going over all the information and deciding on a course of action. Carl met up with me at Court and went over the information he had and clearly explained the Court process for me and how he was going to approach presenting my case. This was a steadying moment as I never been in a Court before so to me it all seemed a daunting experience. Carl steadied the boat and I was satisfied with the way Carl presented my case. He persuaded the Magistrates not to take away my licence. I would recommend Millars Solicitors to friends or family as I found their service good.

ES - Student - Drink Driving - March 2015
Extremely satisfied, this was already presenting itself to be somewhat complex case for different reasons and whilst not wishing to go into the details, the representative from Millar’s was extremely reassuring and understanding and incredibly competent at separating this ‘nightmare’ into different boxes with differing priorities and a focus on the best result for me personally.At every stage the options and consequences were explained and in a way that, so patiently I could understand. At times I may have want to consider other options and they diligently explored those on my behalf and represented the outcomes back to me. Millars sent me details, reminders of where I was to be when and what would happen thankfully, as I was still in a complete melt down and as long as I had an in box from Millars, considering the mess everywhere else in my life I had focus. Given the extreme complexity of the case, I was more than satisfied with the outcome. Millars Solicitors in my experience took the time to understand me not just the offence. Millars don’t Judge people they Defend People!

Mr B - Upholsterer - Totting Up
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help and support with K’s recent case. I have to say it was not the most pleasant six months I have ever had but it was made all the more bearable knowing that we had someone who knew what they were doing acting for us. You always gave us good advice, even if we didn’t like the answer, with a very clear and easily understandable manner. The outcome was more than we could have wished for and this is clearly down to you and your firm, so well done.
Mr & Mrs R
We were very satisfied with the initial advice received: Carl explained the situation clearly and thoroughly. All of the options were explained and the consequences of each course of action. The court procedure, again was explained very well. The potential Court hearing was a daunting prospect but Carl was able to put our minds at rest and we knew that we were in good hands. We were always kept informed and updated even though we sometimes dreaded the calls! We always knew however, that Carl understood how we were feeling and made us feel at ease. We are extremely satisfied with the outcome of the case, it exceeded our expectations and we are very pleased. We certainly would and have already recommended Carl to others.
I was very satisfied with the advice given to me. Carl kept me fully informed of all possibilities in terms of outcome and how the process would work. The options available to me were fully explained by Carl, who also explained the Court procedure very clearly. I was kept fully informed throughout my case via letters and phone calls of any progress or developments, and I was very satisfied with the outcome. It could not have been better! I have already told people how good Carl was and if they ever have cause to use a [road traffic] solicitor they should use him.
Carl Millar represented me at Scunthorpe Magistrates Court in relation to an allegation of using a handheld mobile telephone. I was not using the telephone but the evidence was stacked against me as the two police officers came to Court and both said that I was using the telephone. Carl kept me informed throughout the case and got statements from my mobile phone providers, using the evidence in court. I was really nervous and I thought that I would have difficulties as the police evidence seemed overwhelming against me. Carl argued that there was a difference between holding a mobile telephone and using a mobile telephone whilst driving. I was acquitted by the Magistrates. Carl’s cross-examination of the police officers was brilliant!
