Family in distress
I felt like our family were between a rock and a very hard place, but then Mr. Miller came in, his first words were Mrs Cameron don’t worry. His confidence was all I needed to feel expertly represented. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Mr Miller.

Great Communication and Support, Resolved my Case Quickly
I am so grateful for Richard’s support. I was very nervous going into my order of protection case, but Richard put me ease by reaching out to me and being easy to communicate and get in touch with, and by giving me confidence through his support and genuine care for me. I really felt like he had my back. He appeared in trial with me and with his help the case was resolved in my favor very quickly and easily. Thank you again Richard!

Was a great help during a tough time.
Reached out to Richard when I found out I was being investigated by ACS. He talked me through the procedure for free. When a decision was rendered he put together a packet that helped us get my records expunged for which I’m grateful. He’s responsive and knows what he’s doing!! Very happy I hired him.

Thorough, Affordable, and Professional
Hiring Mr. Richard Miller was confidently one of the best decisions I had made. Mr. Miller helped me get custody of my daughter in the most professional way. He constantly communicated with me by phone and email and always replied so quickly. He was very accessible and I never felt lost. Mr. Miller made me feel calm as it is very clear that he knows what he is doing in the court room. He provided me with excellent and honest advice. Not only is he amazing at counsel but he is super affordable. The most reasonably priced lawyer that I have come across! I truly cannot recommend him enough. Highly satisfied with my experience.

Thorough Lawyer that won't waste your time and money
Richard was recommended by a lawyer friend of mine. With an extensive experience in the Kings County Family court system, his fee is surprisingly lower than other lawyers. Assertive, reasonable, and sharp, he definitely wants to be part of the solution and not the problem when it comes to organizing a joint custody between separated parents.

A Consummate Professional
I hired Richard at a critical moment in my case, and he stepped in and immediately began having a positive impact. He used his evident mastery of the law and the ins-and-outs of Family Court in Brooklyn to help bring the truth to light. As others have written, Richard makes himself available to answer questions, and made time to work diligently on my case even while being busy with others. (he is rightly in high demand) He was also very empathetic and handled the difficult aspects of the case in a humane and understanding way. I cannot not recommend him more highly.

Excellent Family Lawyer
I highly recommend Richard as a lawyer. He helped me resolve an emotionally painful case as quickly as possible, and with the desired outcome. His knowledge and professional manner mitigated a lot of my stress and fear. Communication was easy and prompt. He was also flexible about meeting times, helpful since I was coming in from out of state.

Facts about a Great Lawyer
Richard A. Miller has represented me since 2003. And with his help I was able to win unsurmountanable cases. His knowledge, honesty, integrity and expertise is the main reason why without hesitation I have recommended him to friends and co-workers who also, like myself, have left Family Court happy and satisfied. Richard is honest about your case and doesn't lie to you to drag out and delay the process in order to keep returning to court and incurring fees. He tells you the truth about your case and the best course of action to make this sometime unpleasant endeavor as easy as possible for yourself and your children. I have utilizied other attorneys in the past and besides the fact that their fees are unreasonable, their level of knowledge or genuine concern wasn't up to par. If you are are inquiring and researching a lawyer for future representation, no need to look any further. Richard is the best choice.

A great Brooklyn Family court attorney
I chose Richard after consulting with several other lawyers and one of them recommended him. My case was in regards to child support after a child turns 21. I found him to be very knowledgeable and reassuring and was available when needed. Richard is up on current technology, and knows that it's important in today's world to keep his clients up to date on their cases via tech that they use. The deciding factor should be his experience in Family Court of which he has many years of and knows how to use it to benefit his clients. I would highly recommend Richard if you have a case in Brooklyn Family Court. He got me the results that no one else has in many years.

Child custody Attorney | Jun 23
Relationship: Friend
"Richard Miller was retained by a close friend and business colleague to represent his daughter in a custody battle. I was asked to get involved strictly for emotional support. Throughout the entire process Richard was both professional and compassionate to his clients. Further, he always treated me with the utmost respect and welcomed it when I weighed in with opinions and suggestions. I found him to be very knowledgeable and kind. The two do not always go together."
