Custody lawyer
This lawyer is the best. She helped me a father get 50/50 custody of his lawyer even when even one said it wasn't possible. She has the best skills and defense lawyer. She is well prepared and relentless in her approach. Always kept me calm and educated me and all the things that needed and would happened. I will always have her number and recommend her to many others. Thank the lord for her.

Best Lawyer Ever!
Ms Miller was hired for my child custody case. She walked me through the whole process, gave excellent legal advice when I needed it, has an amazing team who stayed in contact and alerted me to anything new going on with the case. We won our case and she made feel at ease with this whole nightmare process. I would 100% hire her as she is very professional but very compassionate for her clients.

Awesome!!
Outstanding work!!! A friend of ours suggested Mrs. Miller for our son to use in his custody case for his girls. I would say great decision because she won the emergency hearing for him and is working above and beyond on next case coming up!!!

Great attorney, highly recommended!
Ms. Miller has been my attorney on several family law matters. She is by far the best family law attorney in this area. Ms. Miller works extremely hard on your case, she is very knowledgeable and strategic and most importantly she cares about her clients' genuine best interests. Ms. Miller is a fierce protector of her clients' rights and fights hard for the best outcome. I highly recommend her!

The BEST attorney you will find.
Abigail Miller was my attorney during a lengthy, highly contentious child custody matter. Honestly, it was the worst year of my life. Things were unable to be settled out of court and so a trial was necessary. Her efforts helped me to achieve my goals, and ultimately do what was best for my kids. Here's the thing: The majority of family law attorneys are NOT trial attorneys. They just aren't. They're horrible. As such, many attorneys will push you to settle out of court in order to avoid going to trial. By the time you realize this, you have wasted time and money. Incidentally, that is what happened to my ex (too bad). The inside of a courtroom is where Ms. Miller shines. She is a legit trial attorney. Sure, she can prepare documents for you and file things; she's great at that as well if that's all you need. But if your situation potentially requires a trial, then you will want her to handle things. Ms. Miller's strong points are her professionalism, knowledge of the law and court system, planning and organization, and her ability to present a clear, convincing argument. She is a pitbull, and opposing counsel is wary of her. Seriously, she is squared away. Also, Ms. Miller is smart, hardworking, experienced, and quick on her feet. She tends to be conservative in her decision making, but will present you with different options for you to decide. She is honest and has scruples (rare for her profession). The other person who deserves credit is her paralegal, Diane. She is incredible. Very smart, organized, professional and responsive. I was very lucky to have Ms. Miller handling my case and highly recommend her.

She knew how to strategized and was always prepared in court to defend or speak to any argument. Shes also compassionate, listens attentively, and respectful to all parties. At a difficult and uncertain time, shes who you want representing you in family court

Custody and Child Support
I’ve known Abigail Miller for about nine years and have made use of her services on several different occasions. Whether it was to set custody/child support, or to revisit custody/child’s support. She was always an email or phone call away and I was able to walk into a court room with full confidence while having her as my representation. After many years and different cases she is still able to recall details about previous court appearances/motions. I would not entrust another attorney to perform at her capacity.

Great Advocate for children
I retained Ms. Miller for a custody case. Ms. Miller helped my family navigate the court system, legal system and the Department of Social Services (Child Protective Services). Because of Ms. Millers' guidance and support this child is now in a safe home. I would retain Ms. Miller again should I need legal counsel.

Abigail Miller | Kind, fair, honest and extremely responsive
Abby represented me during a child support modification case that was anything but standard. She worked tirelessly on my case; even putting in some hours over the weekend (Thanksgiving weekend!) to ensure things were done in a timely manner. Whenever I sent an email with concerns or questions she got back to me with her response(s) unbelievably fast. That is just her work ethic and it was great to have someone that was there for me during a trying time in my life. When she was in court with me; she was something else to watch. Abby knows the court's processes and procedures and the courts know and respect her. It was a real treat to see her work the courtoom and see first hand that there was a reciprocal level of respect; Abby's respect of the Judge and court and the Judge's respect for Abby. Clearly Abby has worked in the Prince William court system for long enough that when they see her the inherently know they are working with a pro and treat her in kind. I found Abby through a friend and I feel fortunate that Abby was who I was referred to. Top notch! -Eric

Very committed
Abigail Miller helped me with my divorce. She guided me throughout the process and never failed to provide the pros and cons of certain decisions. She always made herself available, sometimes even late into the evening.

Divorce
Ms. Miller made my divorce as painless as she could. She changed her schedule to accommodate mine so that I didn't have to take off from work. She guided me through "the process" and always answered my questions honestly. Her expertise kept us from having to go to court-which saved me from not only a financial stand point, but from the emotional stress as well.

Life made easy
I was attempting to file for my divorce on my own and I kept getting the run around from the court on proper wording etc.... I paid the $35 fee through the county lawyer referal program and met Abigail for my consultation. She was very interested in what I had to say and agreed to take my case. She was very through and pointed out several things wrong with the filing I prepared and all the rights I was giving up. The hardest part was waiting on a court date. Abigail's hard work, professionalism and get it done attitude made over a year of filings on my own into a few months of waiting. I recommend Abigail to anyone doing the right things, but not getting cooperation from your significant other. Abigail made my life easy and my son and I thank her very much.

Very knowledgeable
Abigail Miller is one of the best family law attornies in the Northern Virginia area. She really knows the laws and does very extensive research to help you not only win your case but keep you informed throughout the process. I call Abby about everything that pertains to my Custody , Child support and visitation rights. She is always informative on time and fights for your rights as a parent . She is friendly when meeting you but when she walks into the court room. She really shines and makes you as a client feel like your case is being handled professionally. I would recommend her to anyone who is need of a family law attorney.

exceptional trial lawyer
Ms. Miller represented me in a particularly contentious family law case. She is a brilliant trial lawyer who is neither intimidated nor distracted by the histrionics often seen in these types of cases. She is focused, responsive and I was treated as though I was her only client.

Divorce
I am a first time divorcee from a man used to getting his way. My experience with Ms. Miller was as good as I could have hoped for. She broke everything down into terms that I understood and she helped me fight for what was mine. She didn't take any nonsense from the opposing attorney. There were times when she had to remind me that I didn't have to do everything my soon-to-be ex-husband wanted anymore, that I deserved more. Ms. Miller worked hard to push for a quick and efficient victory on my side and was willing to work with my limited finances. I would refer her to anyone needing a strong attorney.
