Thank you
So I got exposed at work with Covid-19 in 2021. And working with workers comp doctors and case manager was hell, they wouldn’t listen to anything I was saying just totally ignore things I was say. The moment I got in touch with with Mr. Miller and it’s been very good. My case manager stepped back and I got to see one of the doctors that I needed. If for any reason anyone needs a very good law team please call

Absolute Best Lawyer and Team
Joe Miller, Lisa Hancock and the rest of the JML team are the absolute best in the world! They helped me through a very trying time of my life after my work accident and went above and beyond to ensure that myself and my family were taken care of. They continued to check in even after the case was settled. They were easily accessible for questions and advice throughout my ordeal. If you want a team to fight for you and your rights as an injured worker, then Joe and the rest of the Joe Miller Law team are your absolute best choice! You won't regret that decision! Thank you so much, Joe, Lisa, and team!

Thanks for your help
Recently we urgently needed legal advice on a pressing issue and were so happy to receive immediate help from this office. We walked in to get information on our problem and were greeted by Andrew, who went above and beyond to give us the help we needed in a very courteous and personable way. We give our highest recommendation to both Andrew and Mr. Joe Miller. We really appreciated their care and assistance.

They worked hard for me....
I retained Attorney Joe Miller after I was having issues with worker's comp authorizing treatment for my back injury. He and his associates were diligent and worked hard on my behalf, and I received the treatment I needed. Unfortunately, I had a medical complication arise that could have killed my case. Still, we persevered and I was awarded a very substantial settlement. I will be forever grateful for their guidance during this very trying time...

Gratitude
Joe Miller and his team are the best hands down. When I was in a car accident last June, there was no way I could afford my emergency bills or a chiropractor. But with Joe’s help, all my bills were covered and I received additional compensation. His team are amazing. Lisa helped me through every step of the case. She reassured me when I needed it and responded quickly to my emails. Andrew was extremely knowledgeable and was patient when answering all of the questions that I had. I'm grateful to everyone at Joe Miller Law. They took a lot of stress off my shoulders and I was extremely happy with the outcome of my case. If you are injured, I would definitely recommend Joe Miller Law to handle your case. You won't be disappointed.

What a team !!!!!!
Joe and his staff were extremely helpful to my case. They were easy to communicate with and explained everything in lamen terms so I could understand what the workers comp company was doing. It was 4 years of pain and suffering for me after my accident and Joe and his team gave me the support I needed to get through it. They handled all the legal problems so I could focus on my health and getting better. I can't thank them enough for being by my side and treating me like family.

Trust
Lisa has been a breath of fresh air to work with. Trust worthy and honest, tells you exactly how it is. Workmen’s comp claims aren’t peaches and cream, she doesn’t sugar coat anything. She knows my case and researches what she doesn’t promptly. Lisa keeps me updated on any info that is provided to her and explains it in layman’s terms for me. Mr. Miller what an asset she must be for your company, as well for me. Thanks for all your firms help. Mitchell

Simply the Best
From the moment Candice answered the phone and then came to the hospital to meet my husband and I we knew we had peace of mind in our Workman comp case for my husband. Both Candice and Lisa Hancock have been there to answer any question and just show the compassion when we meet brick walls. If we learned anything during this difficult time. You need a lawyer when dealing with work injuries. Joe Miller is definitely the lawyer to pick. He and his entire staff honestly care!

Joe Miller Law
I recently contacted the Joe Miller Law Firm and without any questions this firm is extremely professional and courteous. In just the small amount of time I’ve spoken with them they have definitely encouraged me and taken some stress off me. My first contact was Mr. Ian Cummings. Mr. Cummings is the intake officer for Mr. Miller’s team. What a very knowledgeable young man. I’m extremely excited to be working with a firm that puts its clients a top priority. I would definitely recommend The Joe Miller Law Firm to represent your Workers’ Compensation or personal injury case. An exemplary team that conducts professional services to their clients.
