About Us

Three clear qualities differentiate us from other well-established defense law firms in the area: 


 Our team approach: we work together to effectively resolve your case with four criminal defense lawyers and with legal assistants who oversee legal secretaries who work on every case. Furthermore, we have investigators and use forensic analysts and experts to assist us in all case reviews, from the smallest to the largest criminal matters that clients hire us to handle.


Our team at The Criminal Law Center only accepts cases that involve criminal defense. Kevin Mills has been solely handling criminal cases since his law school internship with the United States Department of Justice in 1981. 

By focusing solely on criminal defense, our partners and associates have become highly skilled in our practice areas and some of our past associates have gone on to become accomplished Assistant United States Attorneys, Assistant Prosecuting Attorneys, and Elected Prosecuting Attorneys across the state over the last 30 years.

Criminal Defense Jury Trial Experience 

While many firms will advertise over 50, 80, or even 100 years of experience, they are generally referring to the lawyers involved in practicing any area of law for that period. While this is a benefit, it is not the same as having practiced solely in criminal defense law. 

When we say we have lawyers with over 50 years of experience, we mean 50 combined years of arguing cases to verdict in front of juries and winning a high percentage of the cases with not-guilty verdicts. Experience in criminal law is immeasurably important, and experience in criminal defense jury trials is extraordinary experience. 

At The Criminal Law Center, we offer all of that, as well as providing appellate criminal advocacy since 1989, which involved the first reported criminal defense case reversal argued by Kevin D Mills. Being a member of the bar of the United States Supreme Court has also allowed us to file and be granted review in The Supreme Court of the United States.
