This lawyer helped me in a business litigation case that I had along with a criminal case that I had. He did a great job and was reasonably priced. Some other lawyers that I contacted were quoting me double of what this lawyer charged me. He was always easy to communicate with and was pleasant to deal with. From what I understand, he has over 25 years of experience and it showed in the courtroom. I highly recommend this attorney.
I am a former client of Steven G. Miller. He did not represent me well. He was not affordable either. Once he got my retainer without providing me a retainer agreement, he charged me $500 for a very short letter which was mostly a copy of an email I sent him days prior. The outcome was not what I discussed with him during the initial telephone consultation of about 15 minutes He lacked the understanding of what needed to be done yet did not bother to ask any questions. He agreed to mediate a matter for me with opposing party without legal representation so he asked a retainer of five hours as a condition to start working my matter. I was referred to him by Legal Services Plan, 1-800-323-4620, a prepaid legal service which for a monthly membership fee, members are referred to a Plan Attorney. I was referred to him by Legal Services Plan as a "Medicaid/Medicare" attorney. The Members handbook guarantee Plan Members a free initial consultation, a letter on a Plan Member's behalf, and review up to 6 pages of a document ALL AT NO charge to members. I needed an attorney ASAP to mediate a matter for me. As a condition to start working my case, he asked a minimum of five hours work paid upfront at the Legal Service Plan maximum hourly rate of $95.00, total $500.00 Once he collected my money by a check card over the phone during my telephone initial consultation with him,. he asked me to wait one week, and when he did something for me (after several reminders) he prepared a very short letter on my behalf (most copied from an email I sent him), his letter to my opposing party did not mention anything about mediation but dismissed my matter closing his letter asking opposing party to contact me directly. He refused to honor the benefits of my Legal Services Plan membership . He told Legal Services Plan and the Florida Bar that he had done his job but that I did not want to pay for his services. I should have searched the internet his website first because I learned his area of concentration is in inmigration law (and not Medicaid/Medicare/Government benefits). Second I should have first searched the Internet for consumers reviews before giving him any monies upfront without a signed Retainer Agreement. He never honored my membership benefits and did not return my money because no mediation ever took place. I do not recommend him to anyone.
This attorney was caring and handled my case in a prompt manner.
