TOP NOTCH REPRESENTATION
I lost my house, due to an odd probate situation. Attorney Miller listened to my story, then set about finding a way to recoup a portion of what I'd invested in the home that was taken from me. It wasn't an easy case; the other side had all the money and power. Attorney Miller stands for what is fair and just, though. He researched his fingers to the bone, assimilated all information I provided, and then stood up for me in a confident, and competent, manner. WE WON! Because of his work, knowledge, and congenial attitude, a settlement has been made in my favor. I am so grateful for the opportunity to begin to rebuild a life that had been previously shattered to pieces. Attorney Miller is a workhorse, but if you're lucky, you might get a smidgen of humor out of him (always welcome during trying times). He's not simply a stellar attorney; he's a stellar human being, as well. He's ethical, honest, trustworthy, and kind. You'll do well to retain his services. Mr. Miller does NOT fit the often negative stereotype of those in his profession. This guy is a gem!

Response from Clifford Miller August 15, 2020
Thank you Zoey. It was a pleasure working with you and I am happy I was able to help you. Getting subpoenas issued from the out of state court was interesting for me, as well as figuring out the law in that state (different from Florida and mostly based on 200+ year-old case law). Suing in Florida for unjust enrichment based on a conditional gift (with the condition unmet) was apparently the right course to take for us. Best wishes in your new home! Cliff

Retaining Attorney Clifford M. Miller was the right decision = excellent lawyer!!
Attorney Clifford M. Miller represented me in complicated Insurance Case. He was extremely knowledgeable and respectful. He handled correspondence, telephone calls and setup meetings for claims against Insurance Carrier. He coordinated and recorded my statement to insurance adjuster and subsequent “Examination Under Oath” statement requested by Attorney for Insurance Carrier. Mr. Miller expertly uploaded, organized and labeled all hardcopy history of case in soft copy PDF format. Including floor plan layout drawings, pictures of crime scene and correspondence from previous criminal portion of case. Attorney Miller's knowledge, commitment, communication skills and guidance to me as a client got me through this difficult Insurance Case. Insurance Carrier was unable to deny claim. I highly recommend Attorney Clifford M. Miller who remains my representative of choice.

Effective, efficient, confident
Cliff was recommended to me by another attorney as one of the top litigation attorneys in my area. We went up against a large insurance company! I feared the case to be a never ending battle. From my first meeting with Cliff, I felt we had the upper hand. Thanks to Cliff, the outcome was very reasonable for me. The defendant and insurance company...not so much! :-)

Litigation
Cliff Miller recently represented us in the successful defense of a construction lien/property suit. He was incredibly helpful and responsive to our every concern, explained in detail the law as it applied and kept us constantly informed of our options and the progress of our case. We could not have wished for better representation.

THE CASE OF THE EVERLASTING PROBATE
I had already been dropped by my first attorney who felt that although I would win my case if I ever got to court felt it wasn't worth his time or effort to get me there & turned down by a second attorney because the estate wasn't big enough for him to bother with, so you can imagine my disillusionment by the time my third attorney sent me to Cliff. Cliff, I am happy to say, was understanding & kind with me though aggressive in his fight for me. Truly a man of his word. He accomplished more in the first week than my first lawyer had in six months, more importantly , he won my case without us even having to go to court!!! He told me my options, advised me which ones he thought were best for me, and kept me apprised every step along the way. His preferred method of communication was through e-mail, but he would promptly return my phone calls when I had questions. I would most certainly recommend him to anyone who finds themselves in need of a hard working, down to earth, honest, straight forward attorney. It was a pleasant experience working with him.

just what I was expecting from a lawyer !
was without hope to be honest that's why I came on this site through google, and than this lawyer gave me the exact information I needed without playing with me and my money, I'm a student in USA and I knew nothing about this country and I gave a call didn't find him available he called me back and answered me, and indeed everything went fine and even better than what he said ! thanks again sir !

Simply Brilliant! Excellence and professionalism at its best.
What a marvelous attorney. Mr. Miller's representation was truly wonderful for us. He has maintained a high level of excellence throughout a very trying ordeal.
Posted by anonymous | June 24, 2009
Exceptional legal work and counsel
We made an appointment with Mr. Miller after three unsuccessful attempts at obtaining legal representation for a potentially costly real estate issue with a large bank. Not only was our attorney very honest and open about our situation, he followed through for us and his expertise resulted in the best possible resolution to our legal problem.

Highly recommended
Mr Miller is a wonderful attorney. We have worked with him a few times and he has always be a top notch professional. If you need an attorney I would not hesitate for a second retain his services.
Posted by Gus | June 17, 2008
Mr Gus Curren
I would and have highly recommended Mr. Miller to friends and aquaintances for his, professionalism, communicative skills and relentless pursuit. I must say he is the only lawyer I have ever dealt with that returned phone calls in a timely fashion and kept me informed at all times. He simply outworks any lawyer I have ever dealt with. I also consider him a friend and the best example of what all attorneys should be but rarely are. The profession of being an attorney has a well deserved negative opinion by the majority of the population, hence all the jokes and negative remarks. Mr. Miller is the exception to that overall consensus.

Mr. Jesse Brock
This is an outstanding Attorney. He is highly competent, always attentive and very personable. He sees beyond the obvious and never stops working for the client. His ability to communicate on any level clearly displays a mastering of the language. I have known and used Clifford and his Father before him for approximately 35 years. He is a man of integrity and a Gentlemans Gentleman.
