Rafael Enrique Millares

About me

I am truly blessed in this life since I love what I do.


I love being a trial attorney and It is my passion to fight for my client's rights in court. 


I am not afraid of going to trial and that sets me apart from many other lawyers who have little to no experience in the courtroom.  Insurance companies know which lawyers will accept the first low-ball settlement offer they make and which ones are not afraid of taking the case all the way.  


Insurance companies know that they stand to lose a great deal by going to trial.  A true trial attorney will maximize the value of a case and not settle for the first offer that comes along. 


That is what I aim to do for every one of my clients.

  • Elizabeth E. Bourdon

    I endorse Mr. Millares for all of his practice areas. I recently worked with him on a case, and it was a great experience. He was quick to respond to me and provided me with what I needed for my end of the case immediately. He's very honest and trustworthy, and was a pleasure to work with. I would definitely work with him again, and would hire him if I needed an attorney in South Florida.
