The Millar Law Firm focuses nearly all of our time helping personal injury victims of negligent injury and wrongful death. We work on car accidents, large truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and fall, animal bites, malpractice and premises liability (including assaults and robberies via negligent security) cases. We do not spread our efforts between extremely different areas of law, such as "car accidents" one day and "real estate" the next. This allows us to provide the best-quality service on the cases we do accept. Most of our cases are handled on a contingent-fee basis, meaning that if you do not receive money, there is no legal fee.

Although no attorney can pay your medical bills or support your family while you are unable to work, we will try to set your mind at ease by working hard to hold off bill collectors and insurance companies while you recover and get back to work. If you are unable to return to work due to a catastrophic injury, we will try to recover available funds to replace your future losses. We will look for every possible source of funds to recover for you.

Our firm maintains two convenient Georgia locations in Atlanta and south metro Atlanta where we meet clients: Peachtree Road and our principal office just outside I-285 in Jonesboro.

Rollover accident
Very knowledgeable of my specific case as well as what I was entitled to legally. The one thing that stood out the most was how soon the lawyers were able to settle my case. I highly recommend!
Response from Bruce Millar June 4, 2015

Personal Injury Claim
I was completely satisfied with the service I received from the firm. Everyone there took the time explaining things thoroughly. My calls were always returned in a timely manner and the attorneys would often rotate calls to me to just check up and see how I was doing and would ask if I needed anything. I would refer my friends and family to use Millar & Mixon!

Excellent Legal Representation
I had the opportunity to be represented by this law firm in a personal injuy case and was very pleased. My case was settled fairly and the attorneys are very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend this law firm to family and friends.
Response from Bruce Millar June 4, 2015
Denese, I am happy to hear you were pleased with our work and would recommend us - thank you!

MadE the processes easier.
After our accident, we meet with the team. We talked about our options. They were very helpful and worked with us all the way. Once we left their office they handled everything. Very nice staff and very knowledgeable. Will use them again if a circumstance arises.
Posted by Danielle | May 20, 2015
Thank you!
They always go above and beyond to make sure you are satisfied. They make you feel like a member of the family and they are truly on your side. Extremely professional, but you also feel at ease.

Where is my Sixth Star?
When choosing an accident attorney to represent you in a case, you have one of two options. You can have a high volume attorney that is only interested in settling quickly and only takes big money cases or you can have an attorney that meticulously breaks down your case, goes the extra mile, and is willing to go to trial on your behalf. Bruce Millar and his staff welcomed my case, worked tirelessly to gain all the necessary information, and were able to get me a settlement even when it seemed like the defense would succeed at unraveling my case. I trust them as I would close family members. I received sound advice regarding continuing medical care to not only treat my injury but to support my case. The attention to detail and timely communication is what sets them apart from other firms. No catchy jingles and TV commercials for these attorneys, just honest efforts and hard work on behalf of their clients.

Thank you Bruce!
My husband and I would like to thank you for all the work you did for my husband’s accident. After he was hit by a driver under the influence and unfortunately had his car totaled, there were not very many lawyers that wanted to take on his case because our insurance company had such a bad reputation of being such an impossible company to deal with. You didn’t just take on his case, but received the highest amount possible which was 25,000. We are extremely grateful to the two of you for putting all your time and efforts into such a relatively small money value case. Mr. Sullivan was a true professional. He worked hard and diligently for my husband. We spoke long and hard about proceeding with the case concerning Mr. Benedicts’ signature. Understanding you are true trial lawyers we had confidence in you both. My husband felt horrible about requesting to accept the 25,000 and not to proceed further. Our lives are difficult now, a new job for my huband, my health as well as my daughters. She is starting a new very expensive medication called XYREM which is 10,000 a month before insurance. Continuing with going to court, taking off work etc., it was just more than we felt we as a family could handle right now. It had nothing to do w our confidence in you both as attorneys. We can’t say enough good things about your firm. Mr. Sullivan and Mr. Millar, you both came across as attorney’s who want what is right and just. We thank you both from the bottom of our hearts. If we can in any way put a shout out about your firm in any way possible, please just ask. I hope you understand our decision. Sincerely, – David and Catherine

2013 Car Accident
My husband was involved in a car accident and we were referred to Bruce Millar for help with our case. He and his staff were excellent in keeping us informed in every aspect of our case. Everyone was professional and understanding to our needs. We were extremely happy with our experience and we have referred friends and other family members to him as well.

Wonderful job
Did a wonderful job on my case. I was referred by a friend who had the firm on another case. I felt like they took good care of me and kept me informed about my case. Mr. Millar met with me whenever I needed something. I was very satisfied with his advice and the amount of my settlement. Tommy Herndon

Get the Right Lawyer
I just want to say that I would recommend Bruce Millar to anyone looking for a lawyer. He was always professional and his staff is very helpful. The most important thing to me is that my phone calls were returned and my questions were answered. My settlement was not quite what I wanted, but I learned that I had no way of putting a value on my case. I had no experience. i learned why my case settled for what it did, and in the end I walked away with no regrets and piece of mind.

dragged my injury case out too long and almost let the statute of limitations expire
He let my case lay around his office and almost let the statute of limitation run. He then calls me up and says they offered a paltry sum to settle. He told me I better take it or he would withdraw and would not file suit. The offer from the insurance company would not even cover my medical bills from HIS doctor that he sent me to. I tried to find another lawyer but never could find anyone who would take it on that short of notice right before the limitations was expiring. I took the insurance company offer and Im still making payments to his doctor.

Response from Bruce Millar August 8, 2014
Hello, "Personal Injury Client," currently there is no other way to respond to your review other than to respond here. I am very sorry that you were unhappy with the outcome of your case and how it was handled. I have tried to determine your identity and when or whether you have been a client, but there is no way to tell. I do not doubt your sincerity, but please understand that these days many reviews are not genuine. I do want you to know that if you have been a client, I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you about any and all problems or concerns you may have. Please call me at 770-477-6360 or email the firm and let me know if I may call you. It sounds like you were not charged any legal fee, and that your medical care was provided doctors who treated on a medical lien, which is an outside contract between a patient and doctor. I will be happy to speak with you and see what help and advice I may offer regarding your settlement and any medical bills you still owe. Best Regards, Bruce Millar Senior Partner Millar & Mixon, Attorneys 770-477-6360
