Review Jeffrey Milman

About Me

Jeffrey A. Milman is a seasoned personal injury lawyer serving clients nationally as well as throughout California. Jeff is also our law firm’s resident authority on medical malpractice litigation against the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs under the Federal Tort Claims Act. He currently is lead counsel in a number of such cases pending against the VA.  Jeff is an expert trial litigator with extensive courtroom experience handling medical and professional negligence, product liability with a specialization in personal injury cases and medical products and devices including pain pumps and hip replacements.  After joining the firm Lopez, Hodes, Restaino, Milman & Skikos in 1996, he successfully litigated hundreds of cases that were resolved either by jury verdict, arbitration award, or settlement. He has won many large financial verdicts, including the largest verdicts in Orange County history for a splenectomy case and a soft-tissue injury in a motor vehicle case.



In 1978, Jeff obtained his Bachelor's degree in Business Management from California State University, Fullerton; and earned his Juris Doctorate from the University of San Diego School of Law, where he was a member of the 1980-1981 Law Review. He also received a degree in Advanced Legal Education in California Evidence from the University of Southern California in 1990.

Jeff is admitted to practice personal injury law before all state and federal courts within California.
