Criminal Charges

In one case, our client was charged with producing methamphetamine on her property. After investigation and research, we convinced the prosecuting attorney that while the methamphetamine lab was on property which the client rented, she was not involved in the manufacturing of the drug.

The case was fully dismissed.

DUI Charges

One evening, a client drove off from a wedding reception in Longmont where he had been drinking. He was heading west out of town when he was stopped by the city police for driving without his headlights on, and was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. Upon investigating the case, Miller & Harrison, LLC ascertained that the client was pulled over outside Longmont city limits and outside the jurisdiction of city police. The court found the arresting officer’s actions to be improper, and refused to let the prosecution use any evidence given by the officer (including his observations of the driver) at trial.

The drunken driving charges were entirely dismissed.

Civil Case Study

Our attorneys obtained a verdict of more than $1 million against the insurer of a building that incurred severe water damage, even though the building was only insured for $128,000. Through our presentation of the evidence at trial, the jury came to understand the insurance company’s insolence and indifference in handling the claim

Substantial monetary award for emotional distress and punitive damages, in addition to the property damages awarded.

Careless Driving Resulting in Bodily Injury

A client was charged with Careless Driving Resulting in Bodily Injury from a very serious accident in an intersection in Louisville. We were able to show to the jury that the other driver likely ran the red light, not our client (as the police investigation determined).

The jury deliberated a short time and found our client “not Guilty” of the charge.
