About Andy

Learn Andy’s areas of practice.

What Attorney Andy Miller likes most about divorce and family law is that he gets to develop a close relationship with his clients and their families while helping them in their hour of need. “When people come to you in family law situations, they really need guidance and someone to help them through this major life change,” he says. “I represent those in need of a strong and zealous advocate.”

Attorney Miller has represented scores of men and women over the years in divorce, child custody and parenting plans, child support, alimony, modifications and contempt of court actions. He thrives on some of the most challenging cases, where he has earned a reputation for resolving complex family law matters and fighting to get his clients the best possible results. He also helps clients analyze all aspects of their situations, taking into account tax implications and other financial considerations that are often overlooked.

Andy is known to size up cases quickly, creatively negotiate and craft intricate settlements, and is a highly skilled litigator. His dedication to clients and easygoing manner is a throwback to the days when doctors made house calls.

He is a master when it comes to high-conflict matters, where he often is successful at “showing people that impossible situations can indeed be possible.” He’s also adept at handling cases with high-net-worth clients or those with high assets. “I’m good with numbers and enjoy the challenge of untying complicated financial knots and finding fair solutions.” But the cases he likes best are those involving children, especially in complicated custody cases. “I’m a dad and I love children, so my soft spot is making sure that they are always protected, considered and cared for.”

Attorney Miller recalls one of his favorite cases, in which he helped a father get his daughter back. The father had been awarded custody of the little girl in another state, but the mother brought the girl to Massachusetts instead. Attorney Miller proved the father had a valid court order from another state, granting him legal custody. The judge not only upheld the custody order, but also gave Attorney Miller the authority “to have any and all police departments execute the safe return of the child to her father.” After the judge’s ruling, he recalled, “The dad cried and hugged me and put his daughter in his car and went home with her, just like he was supposed to.”

Andy Miller says he approaches divorce and family law cases differently than many other lawyers. “Too many attorneys in this field believe that the best way to represent their clients is by putting gas on the fire. I think my clients are better served and can achieve more when we put the fires out.”

He prefers to take a conciliatory approach, seeking to build from common ground to achieve his clients’ objectives through negotiation whenever possible. But if that doesn’t work, he’s ready to battle it out in the courtroom. “I won’t pick the fight,” he says. “But if the fight’s brought to me, the gloves come off.”

Andy Miller is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the Massachusetts School of Law. He is licensed to practice law in Massachusetts. He is an avid runner and enjoys spending his free time canoeing and hiking with his wife and son.

Thoughtful and Thorough Attorney
Attorney Miller is always cognizant of his client's needs. He is always willing to discuss settlement when it is reasonable but will not hesitate to bring disputed issues to a judge if and when it becomes necessary.

Awesome attorney! Exceptional representation!
Attorney Miller took on my case at the 11th hour and did a masterful job representing me in a complex child support case. There were lots of issues to contend with, but he quickly zeroed in on the most important points and argued eloquently and zealously on my behalf. He clearly knows the law and was able to point out the strengths and weaknesses of my arguments, as well as explain how this particular judge was likely to respond to each of the issues. His knowledge of the law as it applied to my case as well as his insights into the judge's background were impressive. Before the hearing, he combed through my financial statement, catching several minor errors that could only help my case. He was thoroughly prepared when we went before the judge and he presented a strong case on my behalf. I couldn't have asked for better representation than that provided by Attorney Miller and I would strongly recommend him to anyone who needs a divorce and family law attorney.

Total Victory When I Needed It Most
In a case in which I was battling a bitter ex wife and false documents presented to the court to attempt to prove I was in contempt of my child support order, Andy kept his cool. While I was stressed, he did what had to be done to protect me from the onslaught. And when all was done, I was cleared of the charge of contempt and the truth came out. His calm approach and court demeanor won my case. And when I say won, I mean 100% victory. My child support order was dropped completely, allowing me to deal with my son directly without the interference of a bitter and vindictive ex.

Out to make a buck
Over complicated everything in order to increase the amount he could bill. Never presented the idea of simple joint petition when both would have agreed to thing (something I did not learn about until later). Took a whole bunch of unnecessary actions and filed unnecessary motions/subpoenas in order to bill more hours.

Former client/customer
Beware. The only legal service Andy Miller provided was appearing in court. He made no proactive actions in my divorce case, not even requesting information from the other attorney. I had to prompt him to receive any strategy regarding my case and when I expressed my concerns of poor legal service my complaints were met with direct hostility.
