Faith was hired after I tried several others. Faith is a great lawyer fighting for justice and never giving up. Faith is helping me fight a case going on for years with no results or even light to nearing its completion. From the minute Faith came into the case taking matters under control, with her great effort and understanding she immediately delivered super progress in the case. Faith is a lawyer that has great knowledge in law, always backs her words and sticks up to her promises. Faith takes matters in her own hands and you never have to fill her in with updates or run after her for things to get done(as seen by others already) for she is always on top of the case and takes care of matters immediately and efficiently. Faith also has a well established and organised office staff that are also filled in with details so the client always feels comfortable leaving a message which they give over promptly. Faith always returns calls right away and responds to emails right away even when on vacation or holidays. Faith also has given me her private cell number to reach her during weekends or after hours if necessary. I would definitely recommend using her for anyone looking to find justice after a divorce.

I've known Faith Miller, Esq. for almost five years, which is when I retained her to represent me in both family and supreme court- emergency Orders of Protection, custody and a divorce action . My divorce commenced in 2012 and went on just shy of year. My former spouse and I had two very young children at that time and I was facing the prospect of never seeing them again, due to nefarious accusations and greed. Faith was sympathetic and immediately assessed the situation and determined what had to be done to accomplish my goals and reunite me with my children. She gaged my emotions and told me the realities of what to possibly expect in proceedings and explained things to me in ways that made sense to me and gave me hope. She also told me in respectful ways when my aspirations might not be realistic, and explained that, if put forward in court, may actually backfire.
All too many lawyers, including others I have dealt with, are all too happy to lodge unrealistic expectations in order to prolong a case and thus be able to charge more in their fees. Faith never did that. Not only is she an ethical lawyer when it comes to the law but is an honest lawyer when it comes to her clients. Faith had a decades long background as a child advocate prior to my retaining her. While she understood that I wanted the children, tomorrow, now...yesterday, she patiently and clearly explained to me the steps I would have to take to get the children back. In short, Faith's style made the painful process of divorce bearable.
I did not know what my former spouse's counsel would say or my ex-spouse for that matter, but I was better prepared psychologically (and without a doubt legally) for it, thanks to Faith. This is ultimately what got me through a dark chapter in may life and has allowed me to have an equal, meaningful and loving relationship with my daughters. Thanks to Faith, they now also know their grandparents and extended family too. As an unexpected bonus, Faith also and gave me the confidence to remarry - a good and kind woman whom the kids adore. I would like to end by saying, that if she can, Faith will keep you OUT of court, assuming a solution can be reached. I had this experience first hand when my agreement with my ex recently had to be altered due to a change in my work circumstances. Most lawyers would chomp at the bit to go to court, again sometimes with ulterior motives. This is not to say that Ms. Miller is not tough and knows her stuff and when she represented me in court she was a fierce advocate and formidable opponent, however, she is rational and level headed and takes all the variables into careful consideration when planning with and for her client the best way to handle a situation or issue. If I had to go to court again, or if I ever have issues concerning my children I would immediately retain Faith Miller again and know, without doubt, that I would have the best representation possible.
