Wish I could give 100 stars!
If I could give Dan and his team 100 stars, I would!!! I was so anxious about navigating the legal system and retaining full custody of my baby, especially since I have a disability. Dan helped me to keep everything friendly and fair, and helped me and my ex agree on all of the arrangements. Then he navigated all of the barriers and got everything I wanted approved by the court. He was responsive, sensitive, and prompt, and even helped my ex, who didn’t have representation, to complete and file his paperwork. He went over every line with each of us to make sure we understood everything. And all for a price I could afford!!! Thank you so much, Dan!!

Brilliant Engaging Lawyer!!
I am so blessed to have found Dan to represent me in my divorce case. Dan had the patience and empathy I so needed through this process. I was the perfect example of a women married 35 years, not knowing our finances or caring to know because my husband "took care of everything!" Dan was so kind, thoughtful and reassuring with me, especially with my confidence so low! He always built me up, when I was so insecure. He never grew tired answering all my questions over and over again! I felt so at peace in his presence. He was always available by text, phone or e mail all hours! Dan worked so very hard for me, and I was so pleased with the outcome. Dan will be forever in my heart. P.

If you need a bulldog, then look no further!
I recently has a false restraining order brought against my wife and I. We hired Dan to represent us. He was confident, straight to the facts and really proved the case in our defense. He made the plaintiff really look like a fool and pointed out the reasons why the plaintiff brought on the false restraining order. I felt so proud to have Dan by our side representing us.

You found your attorney!
I worked with Dan Miller and can highly recommend him! If you are reading this review, you are clearly in a tough spot - believe me, I’ve been there ;-) Is he the cheapest divorce attorney around? No, he is not. But you usually get what you pay for. Or in his case: MUCH more than what you pay for! I am so glad I had him on my side. Starting out, my ex-wife wanted everything including the kids. Thanks to Dan being a level-headed, but determined well spoken professional we quickly found a favorable solution for everyone. Fun fact: Dan did such an amazing job that my ex-wife ended up firing her own attorney and followed Dan’s lead to completion. Look no further - Dan is your man!

Great Attorney
Attorney Miller was very helpful, patient, and professional. He assisted us with the closing of two properties. He walked us through the process and thoroughly explained all of the details required to complete the process. We were delighted with Dan and are looking forward to continuing a business relationship with him.

Great Attorney
Dan helped us close on our house. He was very clear about everything we were signing, and he was great at adding a little humor to the serious situation. He even extended his help beyond the closing should we have any homeowner questions/needs in the future. Truly a great guy and a great attorney.

Best Closing Attorney
Dan was super great helping us close on our house. He was very thorough with all the documentation, and clearly explained anything and everything that was important for us to note on each document. He was really helpful, super funny, and truly made the process a breeze. If we ever needed an attorney in the future, Dan would be the one we’d go to!

Divorce
Attorney Miller was extremely informative right from the beginning. I had a high conflict divorce and he was able to quickly iron out any issues that arose with ease. Because COVID-19 happened to fall in the midst of my case attorney Miller adjusted with these drastic changes of courts being closed. I personally recommend him for your divorce case. I found him through his great reviews online and I hope this finds other people who are in need of a great attorney!

Excellent Divorce Lawyer - Highly Recommend!
Daniel Miller was recommended to me by a friend who has used him in the past for a number of legal matters. He is an excellent divorce attourney who simplified the process, kept me in the loop every step of the way and significantly reduced my stress through the whole divorce procedure. He was extremely friendly and personable. He took the time to address my concerns in a patient and candid manner which made me feel at ease. I felt like I had a trusted ally through a very stressful time in my life. He was highly effective at quickly getting the outcome I wanted and was tireless at achieving that goal. I am deeply grateful to him for all his help and I would highly recommend him to my friends and family.

Professional, Calm, and Caring
I recently worked with Attorney Miller regarding a custody case. Dan was always well prepared for each meeting, he took the time to get to know me, my children’s needs, and my desired outcome. He was extremely professional the entire time, and his professional demeanor kept me calm during what was an incredibly stressful time. I would highly recommend Dan to anyone!

Look no further - Attorney Dan Miller is the lawyer you need
Right from the beginning of hiring him to handle my divorce, it was clear that Attorney Miller's primary concern was doing what was right for my child and he never once strayed from that. He was consistently fair, thorough, efficient, and compassionate. I hope I never need his services again, but if I do, I would hire no one else.

Real Estate Closing
Dan supported my fiance and I with a real estate closing. From the moment we began working with him, he put our anxieties to rest with his personable and easy going demeanor while also remaining professional. When the day finally came for us to close on our new home, we hit a significant roadblock regarding our P&S agreement, and Dan was tenacious when it came to protecting our interests. He was forthright with us about the inequity occurring, and he took the stand on our behalf to ensure that inequity was rectified. Because of this, my fiance and I were able to proceed with our closing on time, and we became homeowners that day. We will certainly be keeping him in mind as we navigate our future should the time arise that we need representation again.

Highly Recommended
Attorney Miller really cares. He represented me in a custody case after we had used a local mediator for our divorce. I am only sorry I did not find Attorney Miller sooner. He was extremely knowledgeable and well-informed as well as understanding and compassionate. He displayed great professionalism, honesty, and respect for his clients. Attorney Miller listened well and was able to rationally and logically guide me throughout this difficult and emotionally demanding process. I recommend Attorney Miller without reservation. I could not have asked for a better advocate for myself and my child.
