Practice areas

I have been practicing law in New York City for over 35 years.

More recently, together with my wife and partner Robin Kahn, Esq., we have opened offices in the Hudson Valley of beautiful upstate New York. 

I enjoy winning difficult cases and successfully closing tough deals for my many satisifed clients. 

Nothing pleases me more than when a satisfied client recommends other clients! This happens time and time again; clients keep on returning and clients keep sending new clients.  Whether the existing clients send friends, business associates or family members, all are welcomed into my office and treated with courtesy and respect.  

My office offers quality legal work, sound strategy and advice, and reasonable fees. 

When I am not busy with my law practice, I enjoy downhill skiing, hiking in upstate New York, road and mountain biking, trail running, seeing live music, and spending time with my family and friends.

I recently purchased a home using Scott Miller. He was from the onset knowledgeable relaxed and very easy to deal with. Throughout the process he was always quick to respond to any questions I had. He fulfilled all his duties immediately. He did everything he could to make this deal go as quickly and smoothly as possible

Scott Miller Review
Scott was recommended to me to help navigate the purchase of a foreclosed investment property. This was my first time purchasing a foreclosure and Scott was extremely communicative and throrough throughout the entire process. This specific home was owned by an investment group for several months and they were in a rush to get rid of it. Scott took his time ensuring that all contractual agreements were met so that we would be as protected as possible. He explained each step as they were presented and I look forward to working with Scott again in the future.

5 star rating
Scott and his wife Robin won my case for me, i found them both to be very honest and hard working every step of the process. They also both had great legal knowledge of case law regarding my real estate issue. I was given their phone number by a relative of the former ulster county clerk and that in itself says a lot. I would use them again and recommend to a family member or friend.

Trust and Clarity
Following a traumatic no fault fire that destroyed my business, I was left to navigate the shark infested waters of landlords, real estate brokers and the State Liquor Authority. Scott Miller graciously came to my assistance with honest, clear and informed legal aid. I would have been out to pasture without his help.

Reliable and Efficient Lawyer!
Mr. Miller was hired by me and my mom to represent us in selling our property in Brooklyn. The case was long and tiresome but Mr. Miller kept us well-informed and always had our best interests at heart for the entire duration of the case. He would meet with us to go step-by-step through wordy contracts, break-down the process that we were going to have to go through and was always 100% completely honest with us. If you are looking for a no non-sense attorney who will fight, and stand-up for you, Mr. Miller is it!

Retaliatory Eviction
I hired Mr. Miller to help me with what I believed to be a retaliatory eviction from my landlord. After exercising my rights as a tenant and abiding by the NYS laws in regard to a bed bug infestation my landlord served me with a Petition of Eviction. Mr. Miller and his team of experts were very professional, informative and patient during this difficult time in my life. They are up to date on the most recent tenant rights & laws and were very realistic with the potential outcomes with my case. I really appreciate the honesty, transparency, communication, and civility of Mr. Miller's work ethic. I will definitely recommend his services to anyone I know who needs it and without hesitation, I would hire Mr. Miller if I am in this unfortunate predicament again. My family and I are eternally grateful to Mr. Miller's firm. Thank you so much.

Landlord and tenant
I had a tenant that lived in my basement for more than a year without paying rent. I could not get rid of him, he used my water my electricity etc ( I live in a privet house) I hired a lawyer, went to court two times unsuccessfully. That lawyer COULD NOT help me to get him out of my basement. After the second court was dismissed, I thought that there is no-one that can help me and that my tenant will live with me for the rest of his life. Just then my brother gave me Scott Miller's number and suggested to try him. I met Scott Miller at the end of May today is the end of September and I am very happy to say that my disturbing tenant is out of my house thanks to Scott. He is very professional, organized, he will give you all of his attention and will make sure to get IT done. He is excellent Lawyer and a good person. I will strongly recommend him for all your Landlord and Tenant needs!!

When we could trust no one, Scott won our trust followed by our case
After being good tenants for years, my family and I were suddenly being kicked out on the street by our landlord. In a state of disbelief, I contacted lawyer after lawyer but it was Scott who not only empowered us with our rights, not only told us we may have a potential settlement, but most importantly Scott helped return a state of calm back to my family. We literally went to Disney World and left everything to Scott. He handled everything and we are very satisfied with the outcome.

Landlord tenant court - tenant eviction
Home owner 3 family home, had several long term tenants for over 40 years. Never had an issue until I was trying to sell my home. Scott made it clear at all times what was going on what should be expected. What could happen, games plans based on those outcomes. I feel the cost were fair and just and honestly I felt better giving the money to him then my tenant. I leaned a lot from him and will be doing work with him again in the future with any prospective tenant from the start instead of waiting and trying to sort this out myself. I wasted 5 months trying to handle this on my own.

Response from Scott Miller September 30, 2019
Robert this was definitely a tough case. Evicting an elderly tenant (who in this case was 90 years old) always presents challenges which do not exist in other cases. The Court seeks to protect those that need protection while at the same time permitting an owner to recover possession of their property. It ended well, with the elderly tenant securing alternate housing and you getting your property back.

When in doubt—hire Scott!,
I was given Scott Miller’s name as a referral when I needed help with an eviction. I was happy to have Scott and his firm represent me throughout this stressful time. He and his team are professional and very knowledgeable.
