A injury case
Phillip represented me in a case more than 20 years with great advice and good results. I need his expertise again and have hire him again. It is an unfortunate situation but I am glad that he will be handling it. Also the staff is great.

The advocate I needed
Phillip helped me when the insurance companies wouldn't. I was injured and at the end of my rope when it came to trying to get the medical care I needed. Phillip and Haley created a plan for me and it worked. Phillip successfully settled my case. Haley negotiated my medical costs with providers, and I was exceptionally pleased with the outcome. I know I would not have had the same result if I tried to go it alone. He was the advocate I needed.

Mr. Miller
Its amazing how much life can change in a matter of moments. Before the age of 21, I was left a widow raising my 3 kids by myself when their father, my husband, was killed in an accident. When I was enlightened about the events that caused my husbands death, I contact Mr. Miller. Mr. Miller and his staff were beyond what I could have ever asked for. They were compassionate, detail oriented and personable. Mr. Miller himself would return my calls and emails, even meeting my children to know who he was helping first hand. His staff is equally as great, taking time and effort to make sure that I understood the process every step of the way and making sure that I was ok. Here were are 5 years after the accident and my call for help and Mr. Miller and his staff still call to check on my family and I. I would recommend Mr, Miller and his team to everyone and If I ever were to need services again this is where I will turn.

A Top Hand
I hired Phillip to handle a very important matter that had long lasting effects on my family. He carefully analyzed the case, crafted a superb approach to helping me carry it out and and after a trial recovered more than I could have expected. He listens, he asks pointed questions, explains certain weaknesses and at all times communicated with me.

Diamond in the Rough Lawyer
These days it is hard to find people you can trust and who looks out for you. Phillip Miller helped me get an auto insurance settlement and helped me get my life as an active mom back. He has an incredible story and is one of the best lawyers and person I've met. He and his team were always honest and upfront. They communicated clearly and made a difficult situation into a good one for my family and me. I will definitely spread the word of his good work!

Philip Miller Review
Mr. Miller and his staff helped me greatly after being seriously injured when a truck hit me. They were great to work with and helped me through the tough time.
Posted by Marilyn | April 10, 2010
Helped me through a maze of workers' comp problems.
I was injured on the job and had one hassle after another involving payment of my medical expenses and workers' comp checks. Phillip's firm got things straightened out and took good care of me. I absolutely recommend them.
Posted by Macon | April 9, 2010
He understood motorcycle cases and got me what I deserved.
I was in a motorcycle collision in Nashville, and got banged up. I had lots of problems between the doctors, medical bills and missing work - and the insurance company was no help. Phillip took care of me, I would come back without hesitation if I needed help.
Posted by Ricky | April 6, 2010
Got my case settled and took a huge weight off my shoulders.
I had more medical bills than I could possibly pay and the insurance company was making no effort to help me. Phillip took my case and got it settled when I had almost given up hope.
Posted by John | August 20, 2009
Has handled cases for both myself and a family member
Has represented my brother in law, and now me. I was injured on the job and the insurance company has been impossible to deal with. I would give up if I had to do this myself.
