Great Results - Minimum Stress on a Tough Case
Christine helped us win parental rights for our 13 year old stepson when his absentee birth father came out of the woodwork. Christine was competent, confident, and compassionate while helping us navigate what could have been a very difficult situation. She promptly answered our many questions, clearly laid out our options, and provided sound advice which got us results beyond our expectations with minimum hassle. My wife and I never had to step foot in a courtroom or come in contact with the other side. We are glad we hired her and highly recommend her. Thanks Christine!

Work Dispute
Christine represented my husband for a work related issue. She was able to settle the dispute quickly and effectively. She was professional, and very transparent so that we knew exactly what was happening and why.

Amazing results, exceeded all expectations, highly recommended
From the beginning, all of our communication, both in person and electronically, made me feel comfortable that my legal concerns were being handled by a confident and personable professional. She always responded promptly to any questions that I had, which assured me that my case was being handled by a lawyer who cares about keeping their client informed and their mind at ease. The results of my case exceeded all my expectations. At each step of the case I felt that everything was being done for my best interest. She made a process that is usually time consuming, inconvenient, and very expensive into one that made me feel up to date, aware of my options, and confident of a positive outcome. I highly recommend Christine Miller to anyone looking for an attorney.

Great attorney
Christine Miller is one of the best attorneys in Louisville, KY. She is very knowledgeable in family law and has helped me and my family overcome some huge obstacles. Her willingness to seek JUSTICE, I believe, is her strongest quality. I could not imagine going through my situation without Christine there to guide me through. They say you get what you pay for, but in this instance you can not put a price on peace of mind, which I now have thanks to Christine Miller.

Thank you Christine!
Christine represented my daughter recently in a highly contentious divorce. I live thousands of miles away and throughout this entire difficult process, Christine made herself available and was responsive when needed. She guided my daughter all the way to a reasonable conclusion! My daughter is only three weeks from having this ordeal put to rest! Christine, thank you for helping my daughter address each issue with reason and equity! You have saved her life and helped to develop a good plan so each parent can support their son in the future. My hat is off to you! I hope when I come to KY to visit I can meet you and give you a hug!

Fantastic Attorney!!
I cannot reccomend Christine Miller highly enough. What should have been a relatively easy divorce proceeding turned ugly very quickly. Christine was quite frankly head and shoulders above the other attorneys (4 total, 3 different firms) that my now ex wife though at us, she gave fantastic advice throughout the entire ordeal, and represented my interests in a level headed, calm and professional manner which scored a LOT of points with the judge. She is a rising star in the discipline of family law, and she was an absolute rock for me in one of the most difficult times of my life. Her performance, strategy, and legal advice are beyond reproach. I am incredibly thankful she was on MY side of the table, and not the other way around.
