Review E. Miller

About Me

I am committed to building a strong firm with the resources and talent to handle the toughest cases in the United States.  We have grown to more than 20 full time lawyers committed to teamwork and achieving outstanding results.  We have achieved more than a billion dollars in settlements.   All of our attorneys are eager to appear in Court strengthening the firm's reputation as trial lawyers.  We routinely go against the top firms in the country.  


 


Personally, I have a passion for watching my three wonderful girls grow up and become the best they can be.  I am an avid sports fan and supporter of all teams Detroit -- even the Lions!  I collect memorabilia  including a George Washington letter dated November 12, 1776 imploring Colonel Hitchcock to raise the regiments, an Abraham Lincoln signed pass to a confederate diplomat, a bat once used by "Shoeless "Joe Jackson, a ball signed by Don Larson and used in his perfect game in the World Series, a 1984 Detroit Tigers' World Series ring,  a postcard Babe Ruth sent to his butcher not long  before he died,  a helmet signed by the first 40 Superbowl MVP's and a nationally ranked T 206 baseball card collection.

  • Mark S. Baumkel

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Mr. Miller is the lawyer's lawyer--the guy other attorneys go to when they need a top-gun to work together with on a very important or complex case. I know because I have involved Powell as co-counsel on several cases, with results including recovery of millions of dollars on behalf of very deserving clients.

    I endorse this lawyer's work. I worked closely with him on two multi-million dollar class actions. In both cases, our clients recvieved a net recovery of 100 % of their damages, with all attorneys fees paid in addition to that 100 % recovery. Defense lawyers are terrified to take a case to trial against Mr. Miller given his perfect track record at trial and his obvious cross examination skills reflected when he takes the defendnats' depositons.
