Damon Miller is a long-term disability and ERISA attorney. He represents disabled claimants against insurance companies that have wrongfully denied benefits. He understands that insurance companies sometimes ignore the advice of your doctors and deny valid claims without listening to your voice. Damon is here to listen to you and help you be heard loud and clear by your insurance company.

In one way or another, Damon has been fighting for disabled clients since he was in college. He was raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee, where he worked full-time as a paralegal while simultaneously taking a full-time college course load. In-between riding his bike to class and work, he supported disabled clients whose insurance companies had improperly denied their claims. He left Chattanooga to go to law school at William & Mary, knowing that he wanted to become an ERISA attorney so that he could continue to hold insurance companies accountable when they try to put profits ahead of people.

Damon has managed cases for disabled clients from Hawaii to New York to Virginia and just about everywhere in-between. In law school, he was honored to serve disabled veterans at the Lewis B. Puller, Jr. Veterans Benefits Clinic at William & Mary.

He is a graduate of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, where he studied English Literature, and of William & Mary Law School (the Marshall-Wythe School of Law).
He is a member of the Federal Bar Association, the Fairfax Bar Association, and the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association.

When he’s not battling insurance companies, he loves spending time with his wife, Emily. They’re always going on new adventures together, exploring new places, and trying new food. And in his spare time, he creates new worlds. He writes fantasy and science fiction stories and he’s currently writing an epic book series about an ancient medieval civilization facing the end of the world (think Lord of the Rings but with more dragons and explosions).

Disability appeal
I had the pleasure of working with attorney Damon and Mary from Ben Glass Law for my disability appeal with a private insurance company. From the start, Mary was incredibly helpful and responsive to every email, making the process much smoother for me. Damon's expertise and guidance were invaluable, and together, they were instrumental in successfully appealing my disability claim. One of the challenges we faced was that my three physicians I regularly saw were very averse to filling out disability forms, which is a common problem. However, Damon and Mary had the expertise and experience to convince two of them to support my disability claim. Their professionalism and dedication to my case were evident throughout the entire process. They took the time to understand my situation and went above and beyond to ensure that my appeal was handled with care and diligence. Thanks to their efforts, my disability appeal was successful. I highly recommend Damon, Mary, and the team at Ben Glass Law for anyone in need of assistance with a disability claim. Their expertise, responsiveness, and commitment to their clients are truly commendable.

Insurance bad faith success
Damon helped me when my insurance provider denied a claim for life saving services provided to my infant son. He is very knowledgeable in this area. He is also very diligent and I was always assured that he was doing the right thing for me in my case. He ultimately won me the case and I could not happier with him for that!
