About Me

As founder of the Law Office of John D. Mills, P.A., John D. Mills represents clients in Fort Myers, Lee County and Southwest Florida. He focuses his practice on divorce and criminal law, handling cases that involve the following matters: domestic violence, child custody, alimony, paternity, DUI, equitable distribution, modification, white collar crimes, child support, restraining orders and high net worth divorce.


In 1986, Mr. Mills graduated from Mercer University with a Bachelor of Business Administration in finance. He then attended Mercer University Walter F. George School of Law and earned a Juris Doctor in 1989. Mr. Mills is a member of the Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity.


 


After graduating from law school, Mr. Mills served as a prosecutor with the Lee County State Attorney's Office for a year before moving into private practice. This experience has given him an inside understanding of the judicial system and enables him to negotiate for the best possible solution on behalf of people accused of committing a crime. He knows the challenges that people face and helps them understand their rights and their options.


 


Divorce is an emotional experience for many people and Mr. Mills knows that the decisions made in a divorce settlement can have lasting effects. He is known for his compassion but is also an aggressive advocate in the courtroom to make sure clients receive the property and financial support they are entitled to by law. Mr. Mills is licensed to practice law in Florida and Georgia, and is admitted to the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida.
