also known as Michael R. Miller, Mike Miller

About me

Pictured above is Josh Pearson who has been working with Mike since March of 2012.  Michael also enjoys family time.  He is pictured above with his grand daughter.  He also has two grandsons and thoroughly understands how divorce and custody can affect family life.  He has has been practicing in Central Texas since 1977, which started when he moved here from the Panhandle of Texas.  He narrowed his practice to be more effective to the areas of Family Law, Wills & Probate, and Small business entities; however, he frequently refers clients to knowledgible lawyers and firms when they need help outside his areas.  Michael works with Josh Pearson and staff.  They are dedicated to provide top quality legal services, promptly, at reasonable prices.  They endeavour to establish permanent relationships with their clients whenever possible, because satisfied clients refer their friends and acquaintances to the firm.  When you call during business hours, you will be able to speak with a real person.  While we have the latest technology, we use it to serve our clients and not to put a barrier between clients and the staff.
