Professional, empathetic and amazing!
Kate and Brett were amazing! They were always responsive, sympathetic to my needs and made such a difficult and stressful situation easier. I always felt supported every step of the way and was treated with respect and professionalism. I certainly will reach out to them again and again with any needs I have.

Best Family Law Practice in Charlotte
I have been a client of Kate's for some time. She is thorough, honest, articulate in court and knows the law. She worked so hard for me and as a result the outcomes were always positive. Her entire office staff is amazing. She is fantastic. Best family lawyer in town! Hands down!!

Best in the business!
Katie and her staff did a phenomenal job handling my separation and divorce. They were ALWAYS available when I needed them (including after normal business hours) and could not have done a better job protecting my interests. My divorce was finalized in 2012, and to this day I carry their business cards in my wallet and hand them out whenever a Family Law topic comes up. I hope I don't need Miller Bowles Law again, but I'm glad they are there.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND
I can honestly say that in working with Katie Miller -she saved my sanity-throughout this entire emotional rollercoaster of a ride. Her advice, knowledge, professionalism and guidance of all things "divorce" proved to be such an asset. Katie was a complete advocate for me and my children. No stone was left unturned which yielded the very best outcome for me. Her integrity is of the highest standard. I have and will continue to recommend Katie Miller.
