Debbie made the process of completing a will for my husband and myself. I had tried an online app and it was way to complicated. Debbie explained the different options available to me and made things so much simpler to understand.

Excellent!!!!!
I met Debbie Miller many years ago through a mutual friend. I recently had the pleasure of working with Debbie on my estate planning and was extremely impressed by her professionalism and expertise. She was able to quickly understand my needs and concerns and provide various options to consider on how to structure my estate. She suggested things I would not have thought about and her attention to detail and commitment was evident throughout the process. Debbie's pricing was also very reasonable, which was an added bonus. She provided a clear and concise breakdown of all costs, and I found her fees to be extremely fair and competitive. I was so pleased with Debbie’s work and her demeanor, that I recommended her to work with my elderly parents. I recall my father saying that Debbie made him feel comfortable and took the time to make sure he understood everything. I also recommended Debbie to my Aunt who hired Debbie and she was extremely pleased with the services provided. In summary, I would highly recommend Debbie Miller. She is an exceptional attorney who goes above and beyond for her clients and provides expert legal advice and representation.

Probate Attorney - Challenging Case
Deborah was my attorney through an extended probate lawsuit. She was very strategic and planned well and kept focused on the issues. The outcome was successful. The process required a review of extensive financial records, gaining access to these records, multiple hearings, and responses to various challenges. Throughout, Deborah was strategic and thorough in her responses, continually kept pressure on the other side to resolve the issues through multiple hearings. She was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her.

An outstanding lawyer
I hired Debbie to represent me with my divorce. She prepared my Will as well. She is a very empathetic and professional lawyer. She made me feel very comfortable from the beginning and explained the entire divorce process thoroughly. From start to finish she communicated all iniformation and was patient and compassionate when confronted with constant questions and rants. I would highly recommend her.

Extremely Professional and Knowlegeable Lawyer
I hired Debbie to represent me whilst going through a divorce. It was one of the most difficult times of my life. She made me feel at ease from our very first meeting to the present. She was trustworthy, compassionate, patient. She led me through the entire process and explained things so I could understand. Needless to say I was very pleased with the outcome of my case. I highly recommend Debbie. She is not only a good lawyer but a good person as well.

I highly recommend Debbie's legal services. I found Debbie to be very thorough in analyzing business contracts focusing on the major items. She was flexible in tailoring a contract that would meet my needs as well as providing me alternative ideas about a specific topic within a contract as well as alternative language that provided greater clarity. Turnaround time was good for reviewing a contract which was usually in a couple of days. Ethically strong, only provided appropriate and needed services for a given project.

an outstanding lawyer and person
Debbie is a good, well educated lawyer who acts like a regular human being when she does not have to be in "lawyer mode" . When dealing with judges and other lawyers, she was professional and assertive. When dealing with me, the client, she was patient, sympathetic and understanding. She made be feel very comfortable and helped me get through a very trying situation. She was always accessible and kept in constant communication, both updating the status of case and just being generally supportive on a personal level. She was thorough in her preparations and forced the other side to basically surrender.

REVIEW OF DEBORAH B. MILLER, ESQ.
5-10-13 I am a friend and colleague of Ms. Miller. I am also an attorney (semi-retired) and worked for a number of years for Shearman & Sterling and other major international firms. I have worked with Ms. Miller and she is my personal attorney, handling both business and personal matters, including my estate planning. I have recommended her to friends and colleagues, who have only the highest praise for her knowledge and work ethic. I ordinarily do not write recommendations, but am pleased to do so in this case.

Excellent Lawyer/Highly Recommended
I have been using Deborah Miller both professionally and personally for at least the past decade. She is an excellent and attentive person and gets great results. Professionally I have worked with Deborah in numerous contracts cases for customers that had unpaid balances and refused to pay. She has been very helpful in closing out these cases and get payments from these customers. Personally I have work with Deborah a few times and she is always helpful and informative. She has both a professional and personal demeanor. It didn't feel like I was working with a lawyer. It felt more like I was working with someone that actually cared about me. I would definitely recommend Deborah Miller for any person or business that is looking for a great lawyer and person. She will work for you or your business and get the desired results.
