My family and my faith are the most important things to me.  I enjoy helping other famiies put plans in place to protect themselves and their hard earned assets.  Helping people get peace of mind about staying in control and having a plan in place is very rewarding.  

In my free time, I enjoy watching sports, playing golf, spending time on the lake and at the beach with my family and reading.

My Estate Matters
Mr. Miller explained very detailed and informative matters in a way I could easily understand. He was always patient to go over items I did not immediately understand. He was always ready and willing to help further if i needed. I was impressed with the detail and extent of items in the will and trust which are covered but might not necessarily happen. Alot of wills do not go to this extent.His knowledge, experience and care give me a great deal of confidence that my final wishes will be carried out in a manner I desire.

I highly recommend Mr. William Miller
I attended a seminar presented by Mr. Miller several months ago. After the recent death of my husband, I was aware of the need to update and change my estate plans. I met with Mr. Miller for a consult and he, indeed, answered all my questions. I quickly decided to hire Mr. Miller to prepare all my legal documents to assure that my family would know my wishes and have copies necessary to make decisions when the time comes. Not only is Mr. Miller knowledgeable, but is very kind and compassionate. His staff is very helpful, as well. I have recommended him to several friends and family members.

Timely update of our Living Will & Trust
Was time to update our Living Will & Trust. I researched and attended a workshop presented by Bill Miller. Was impressed with his only practice being in Eldercare and Estate Planning. Decided to use Miller Law Firm in preparing our updated documents to where there will be no confusion or question about our desire with our estate. The entire time spent with Bill and his staff was professional and delightful. I would strongly recommend Miller Law to those that need to prepare with several of the most important documented articles and filing to protect their estate and have outlined clearly how all items will be distributed with their children and grandchildren. All individuals and circumstances are different, Miller Law is versed in giving knowledgeable and professional services to each of their clients unique to their wishes and circumstances

Mr. Miller helped us with our estate planning. He was very friendly and kind as we worked through that task. Often difficult to make yourself think of that being your final wishes but Mr. Miller was so helpful in the process and it was not a hard experience at all.

Restatement of Revocable Living Trust
We recently moved from CA to AL and, as a result, needed to restate our revocable living trust and other important documents to make them compliant with AL state law. Mr. Miller and his staff were very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful to get our affairs in order. They showed us various options that would meet our needs. They also made it clear that they were interested in taking care of our needs not only for the present, but for years to come. I would heartily recommend this firm to anyone needing this type of service.

Honest, valuable council
Mr. Miller and his staff assisted me in navigating a "no plan" estate situation. He and his staff worked with me to develop a best case scenario, allowing me to focus on caring for my parents instead of waiting on answers to difficult questons.

He did an excellent job of explaining the documents we wanted (wills, revocable trust, health care directives, etc.) and the process we needed to follow to get them implemented. He was very patient in answering our questions and concerns and making suggestions when appropriate. I highly recommend him.

Estate planning
Bill Miller and his staff were most helpful with our estate planning. We attended his free seminar to help us understand our needs and we then scheduled an in-office meeting with Bill. He provided concise direction for us. We finalized our paperwork a few weeks later in the office and we were all done! All documents were organized in a binder for time of need we also recieved PDF files for safe keeping. We recommend Bill andand his staff for estate planning needs!
