I would not recommend this firm to anybody. Please, take your time to shop around. Besides that you will get overcharged you never get to talk to the attorney unless you make an appointment exclusively for that, keep in mind you are getting charged $250.00 per hour. Everything is through their paralegals/Assistants, and most of the time they don't relay the messages to the attorneys. At the time of the hearing/trial the attorney will ask you for documents that you have already provided to her paralegal. Their communication is very inefficient. I lost my case, I was given overconfidence that "we would win" and we did not. Attorney Miller is NOT aggressive enough and prolongs everything. You will get charged by the minute, every phone call, every email. I am very disappointed. I have spent about $35,000 and I did not get anything. I am still fighting for child custody.
I hired Ms. Miller after interviewing several other attorneys to represent me against my ex-husband who was seeking to modify our child custody agreement and child support order. She was attentive and seemed to understand and be willing to address my concerns at our first consultation. However, that was the last time I saw or heard from her until my court date. My phone calls and emails were never returned, and I never received notification of court dates until after they had passed. I never received copies of temporary court orders until they were obsolete. The only correspondence I received was a billing statement on which I was charged for every phone call, every email, and every piece of paper I never received. When it was time for my final court date, there was no preparation, so I was put on the stand to testify with no knowledge of the questions my own attorney would be asking. Ms. Miller was unprepared and seemed more concerned with appeasing opposing counsel than working toward what was truly in the best interest of my child.
Attorney Miller is the best attorney in Fayetteville, NC. Also that is not the correct picture of her. Attorney Miller handled my very complex Military divorce. She was very well educated of all the dos and donts in a Military divorce. I would recommend her to everybody Military or Non-Military. She has a great staff that helps to address all of my concerns. She will fight for everything you want, and she will also tell you what you cant fight for. I would hire now if you need a family attorney.
Attorney Miller is an inept attorney at law. She has misrepresented herself as a true professional. Her lack of attention to detail is extremely poor and her understanding of your needs and wants go unaddressed. You cannot trust her to do what is in your best interest and if you needed her assistance on an issue involving your case it took days before she would get back to you. Attorney Miller would allow herself to be influenced by the opposing party's attorney and she would not stand up against opposing counsel with regard to my son. Attorney Miller is not familiar with the military enough to represent any one in the military. Her arrogance and unprofessionalism shines through as well as her lies. She had me believing that she would take care of my son when in fact she mislead him on several issues. I provided her with evidence that she would not have otherwise have if it were not for me giving it to her - AND SHE NEVER PRESENTED IT IN COURT.
Sherry is my law school classmate and a fellow attorney. I have had only good experiences with her as opposing counsel and I have only good things to say about her. However, I wanted to point out that the photo on her Avvo profile is not a photo of Sherry MIller. It is a photo of the very Honorable Judge Toni King.
Ms. Miller was very unattentive to my case. It would take her several business days to respond to my calls and emails. When she did respond she would only address some of my questions. When corresponding with my ex-wives lawyer the letters coming out of her office were very unprofessional and casual; they started off with Dear Sally, rather than Dear Mrs. Jones, there were many grammatical errors in the letters-it looked as though no one had taken the time to proof what they had written. My children are being mistreated by my ex-wives live in lesbian lover and she did not seem the least bit concerned with my childrens well being. I hired her thinking I would receive good representation and make my childrens lives better. I paid all the fees she requested hoping to get my case failry represented in court and get my childrens complaints heard, these are not the results I received from Mrs. Miller. It was 2 1/2 months after the temporary custody hearing that I received my copy of the agreement from Ms. Millers office, my ex recived her copy over a month prior to me-seems her lawyer was on top of things. I had to do my own research and send Ms. Miller the links to the NC statues that allow for certian considerations when a member of the US armed forces is involved in a custody/visitation case. I can only guess at why she was so preoccupied when representing me, perhaps she just does not pay attention to detail or maybe she is trying to represent too many clients at one time. If you are looking for a lawyer who is going to give your case the attention and knowledge you need to be well represented in court, I would not recommend using Ms. Miller.
