I have been praticing law in the hampton Roads area since 1990. I grew up in the City of Chesapeake and went to College in Williamsburg and Law School in Virginia.  I am very familiar with the courts in this area and have handled thousands of cases both in the District and Circuit Courts of Chesapeake and the surrounding cities.  Our law firm was among the first ever founded in this city. We are small enough to give you the personal attention that you require but large enough to insure tht you receive an experienced attorney in whatever area of legal need you have.

A lawyer that I would recommend to anyone whAo is looking for one of best of the best!
I am a man of few words,but I will use these few moments to say that from the time I was introduced to Mr Brian Miller to represent me with my auto accident he has been nothing but honest, respectful, dedicated and to the point! If he say he is going to do something you can bet your last money that he is going to do it. I was rear ended by a crazy driver, my original Attorney recommend him to me and the rest is history. I am hoping never to be in any accident again, but we do not control our destiny, if anything like that should ever happen again, without any hesitation Mr Brian Miller, Attorney at Law.

Defense argument
Prepared and presented an effective argument to the judge hearing our case. His communication while preparing for our argument was on point and consistent. Mr. Miller was professional in his demeanor and clearly and concisely disposed of an appeal. Our experience was very satifactory.

Traffic Court
Brian Miller, Attorney at Basnight, Kinser, Leftwich & Nuckolls, recently represented me in court. Brian's efforts resulted in my ticket being dismissed due to an accident at an intersection with costly penalties and increase in insurance premiums. He is one of the best attorneys in court with excellent representation. You definitely want Brian Miller in your corner if you must go to court. Larry Rumsey

Positive Experience
Mr. Miller’s confidence and legal expertise were very comforting and he did exactly what I needed him to do by reducing a speeding ticket down to a charge of defective equipment and no points on my insurance.

Very Professional
Mr. Brian Miller saved me from a very expensive hit to my auto insurance by negotiating my own recklessness into a minor charge. He was respectful and did much more than I expected.

Criminal defense
We retained Mr. Miller to defend our son against a criminal charge under unusual circumstances. From the first telephone call, he and his staff were professional, courteous, and most importantly, diligent in their efforts to uncover the facts to present a solid defense. There was no question that Mr. Miller and the team had our son's best interest at heart. The outcome was better than we had expected. We will certainly recommend him and the practice to our friends and family.

New to State and reckless driving
We are new to the state of VA and moved from a state with much higher speed limits. Anyway- a reckless driving ticket later - I learned what that was and meant. Hired Brian and some magic lawyering later- I ended up paying a $50 fine for a non moving violation. Not saying this would happen for everyone but Brian was professional, courteous and the smartest decision made since moving to VA. He took care of everything in a timely and professional manner- communications were clear and concise. Do yourself a favor and hire Brian and let him do his lawyer thing.

JAKA Builders collection matter.
Brian handled all communication with builder to collect unpaid balance. He guided negotiating strategy that resulted in a better than anticipated result. He kept me informed throughout and always got my approval before proceeding.
Posted by Bill | March 11, 2015
Brian was so wonderful at navigating the difficult waters of my separation and divorce. I could not have worked through this with out him. He always gives the best advice for you even if it is not what you want to hear.

Civil Suit
After almost a year of trying to collect from an accident with no success I contacted Brian to represent me. In less than two months after retaining Brian my civil suit was settled and I received a check from the plaintiff. Brian and his staff kept me well informed throughout the entire process and I would highly recommend him for any legal matter.
