Attorney
We found ourselves needing so much support with this civil case that we were very overwhelmed. The skills and compassion were so helpful during the process even when it was so challenged by the opposing party.. All the excellent work that went into our case was wise and saved us so much trouble and money in the big picture. Thanks to Deannie for helping calm our nerves because that certainly helped as well. I would highly recommend Attorney Miller because he really cares for his clients and that results in success.

Competency, and Integrity with Compassion
I contacted the Law Firm of Joshua Miller when I found myself facing a domestic assault charge. From the moment I met Mr. Miller and his assistant; Deannie Robinson, I felt that I had made a good decision in choosing proper representation. Mr. Miller walked me through the process that awaited me in court, and put me more at ease with the situation. His pricing is upfront, and fair, and he was with me every step of the way. My charges were retired, and I am extremely pleased with the outcome of my case. His care, and dedication to my needs were commendable, and I am grateful for his expertise in navigating a difficult situation.

A Future Saved!
Mr. Miller and his legal team recently represented a member of our family in a highly complex case involving multiple charges. He was recommended by a trusted friend who is also an attorney in another state after she spoke with him concerning the case. We are tremendously grateful for that recommendation! I appreciate the need for “due process” in such a case; but in my opinion, this case was high on the radar of the District Attorney’s office. This resulted in their use of numerous legal maneuvers and “tricks” in an attempt to win their case at any cost. Perhaps the phrase, “Every trick in the book” actually applied here. This ultimately resulted in legal actions being taken that were perhaps not unprecedented in Tennessee law, but were extremely rare and, by some accounts, “bizarre”. Through all of this, Mr. Miller’s concern for his client’s legal protection was clearly evident. As complex a legal matter as this was, and with all the maneuvers that were used by the opposing side, he expertly navigated us through the process. He provided highly experienced guidance with a lot of natural intuition in his profession to explain the constantly changing situations, the legal actions from both sides, and the available options to help us make the very critical decisions with respect to his client’s life and future, as well as their emotional well-being. Mr. Miller’s results were significant in terms of his client’s situation throughout the lengthy process. Shortly after he began representing us, he was able to obtain living arrangements that were safer and more conducive to the extensive emotional recovery they required. And most importantly, in the end, the sentence given was night and day from what it likely would have been were it not for Mr. Miller. Instead of a very lengthy prison sentence, that member of our family has the opportunity to create a better future for themselves and their children. We’ll be forever grateful for all that Mr. Miller and his team have done for us!

Jennifer Fiola of the Law Office of Joshua Miller
I hired Jennifer Fiola, with the Law Office of Joshua Miller after a piece of property was unjustly seized by a police department. Jennifer was amazing. Jennifer was amazing to work with. She understood what this meant to me and did her best to help with my situation. The state dismissed the case and I received my property back very quickly. I would, in a heartbeat, hire Jennifer again. She was phenomenal.

Divorce Attorney
Josh and team handled my divorce compassionately and with care. They always made time for me, answered my questions and concerns in a way I could understand, and made sure I understood the process every step of the way. They stood up for me and made sure the dissolution of my marriage had the best possible outcome for me. I would highly recommend Josh to anyone looking for an attorney, and would use him again should the need arise.

Honored to have had Josh Miller represent me
I found myself in a mess that blind-sighted me. " My life was turned upside down" doesn't come close to adequately describing what had happened. I initially hired another attorney who left me in an even worse position, and the judge had given me one day to hire an attorney. From the second I called Josh Miller's office Brooke was reassuring, attentive, and so very kind! She truly does have a heart of gold! In court I was lucky to have Josh standing beside me. Hands down he knows his stuff, to say the least! On more than one occasion I was left with a profound "WOW" factor, and proud that he was on my side. My case ended with dismissal!!

An Amazing Legal Team
Absolutely the best decision I've ever made to have Josh and his team represent me in a case of stolen money. I loaned over $20,000 to a supposed "friend" who decided not to pay me back. My "friend" wouldn't return my calls, emails or texts so I reached out to the Law Office of Joshua D. Miller. They calmed me down and helped me through the entire process. In the end, I got a settlement for all the money that was owed to me and I could not be happier. They have also checked in several times to make sure the payments are going well. If you're looking for an attorney team that can handle it all in the Nashville area give them a call... You will not be disappointed. Thanks Josh and team!

Attorney Jennifer Fiola
My experience with this law office was top notch. I felt safe and heard working with Jennifer Fiola and the office staff. They were so kind to my mother and I during a very scary and hard time. I am truly grateful to have met these women. They not only handled the case quickly and efficiently but the wrongful charges were also taken care of. Honesty and trust goes a long way. Thank you again, Jennifer and Brooke, for your kindness and professionalism.

Great Managing Partner & Stellar Firm
Mr. Miller runs a practice that is client-centric. When I contacted the office about the matter I found it unique that I had the opportunity to meet the managing partner directly in addition to counsel assigned to my case. Mr. Miller was ethical and ensured I understood any contracts presented to me. He provided a high level overview of the case and then introduced me to my attorney Ms. Fiola who was great. Mr. Miller has a fantastic support staff. Legal support staff really keep the office organized and promptly communicate with clients and the court where appropriate on their behalf. Mrs. Lanham, the administrative assistant was courteous and great with any calendaring that has to occur involving me (the client). Would absolutely recommend the firm. Finding exceptional attorneys who have it together and will zealously advocate for their clients is paramount. This firm is up to that standard in my book. I’ve used several firms in my life for various civil and other matters and this has been a very good experience.

Honor, Integrity, Professional, Character - Top Notch Law Firm!
I've retained many lawyers thru out my life but I must say Joshua Miller is top notch for winning your case. Upfront, no fluff and actually cares about seeing justice prevail. I highly recommend Mr. Miller. You will not feel left out of the information flow, constant contact with strategies and will respond immediately if you have even the simplest question. Having someone like this in your corner, regardless of the reason is paramount. Also I would like to add, his assistant Brooke is spectacular as well. If I could give 6 stars I would. Please consider them. Just look at their reviews. Real people like you and me. Regards, Sean W.

Failure to appear (DISMISSED)
Failure to appear to court in Williamson County was dismissed!!!! Something I read online and all the internet forms that are very hard to get done. Miss Jennifer Fiola My attorney went to bat hard. And worked respectfully with the DA to get my case dismissed. I can reiterate how great it was to work with Brooke there assistant in conjunction with the case... Joshua Miller also consulted with me before taking my case and suggested some great ideas for us to do. To work on getting my case down to at least a misdemeanor but however Jennifer was able to get it dismissed all together... Do not go with a public defender or a cheapest attorney you find go with the attorney that has the reviews that back them up.

Professional service, attention to detail
When in dire straits and not knowing what the outcome would be, I went here. I thank God for Mr. White, Mr. Miller, and Brooke for their professionalism, nonpareil attention to detail, and clear delivery of my options all long the process. They didn't gaslight me. They gave it to me real and proved themselves as true aficionados in their field. I will always recommend anyone in the area to their offices.
