Real estate closing
As a widow I was downsizing and was anxious about all the details of my move. John Miller and his staff made the transaction of closing on my new home a pleasant experience. I am going to use his services to plan my will and trust. I would highly recommend his firm.

Lawyer that gets the job done
I have worked with and exchanged referrals from John Miller and he is an excellent lawyer that gets the job done. In the event he can not assist in a particular matter, he has a large network of diligent responsive attorneys to handle most issues. Not only is he a great lawyer, but he's active in the community and a great human being.

Accessable and Professional
John has been my Corporate Attorney for over fifteen years. In that time he and his staff have been almost ridiculously attentive. Organization is not one of my strong points, but is one of John's. Any late night, weekend, or last minute inquiries or needs by me have always been handled asap. I have recommended John numerous times over the years to friends and colleagues and continue to do so without hesitation.
