Review
Brian represented me in a case after no progress had been made with a prior attorney for over a year. Brian enjoys researching legal issues and his research on a couple of legal issues in my case were difference-makers in the final outcome. He effectively used his time in the case to limit my legal cost and he was solution-oriented, an important trait in resolving my case outside the courthouse.

Quick Results
Brian was great to work with. I thought my case would be long and drawn out however, start to finish it took 4 weeks and ended in my favor!! If you need a lawyer who knows what needs to be done, hire Brian Miller.

great job
Brian is the first lawyer I've worked with for any reason. I hired him to take care of my divorce. I probably could have done it on my own, but it would have taken much longer for me to do it, so I hired Brian to make it easy, and for peace of mind that everything would be done correctly. He also worked as a nice buffer between my ex-husband and myself when certain things needed to be communicated. Brian was easy to work with, responsive, and transparent about how things should go. My case was not complicated, but I think he did a great job. I would hire him again.

Excellent experience with a winning attitude!
From beginning to end Brian was on point and inspiring. He thoughtfully and appropriately provided us with excellent and thorough attention. He did not make empty promises and he was not judgmental. He uncovered truths and utilized the law as intended.

Brian Miller Legal Services
We are residents of Helena, Montana and have on two occasions hired Brian Miller ( Morrison, Sherwood, Wilson, and Deola). The legal services we required differed. We met with Brian several times over the course of about five years. Brian was professional and cooperative on all occasions and in both endeavors. Both of these occasions involved tort law. The first case Was eventually decided in court, where we prevailed. The status of the second case appears resolved as a direct result of Brian’s communication with the defendants. Brian was inquisitive about the aspects of each case. Brian is focused and frugal with his time and efforts. The expenses we incurred were just and reasonable. We would hire Brian again.

Child custody
Brian helped me with a 2-year long and complicated child custody case that crossed state-lines. I could not have asked for better representation.

Efficient & savvy
In my 33 year corporate management and analytics consulting career, I've had to work with a lot of lawyers. Brian is the first who’s ever gotten out in front of me on deadlines. He quickly calibrated to my skill level and taught me relevant legal concepts, empowering me to bring my domain expertise to bear on a legal strategy that we formulated together. His collaborative approach is both efficient and effective, saving me money on the way to reaching better results. Who would have thought it could be fun to revise contracts?

Brian Miller review
Brian was the perfect lawyer! I hired him because I was being harassed by management where I lived. Made up violations, etc. He was there for me thru hard times and prepped me for negotiations. Very respectful and I got what I wanted without going to court.

War and Peace
Brian was very personable in getting to know my case. I transfered my case to him from someone I was using out of State for several years, and Brian took the time to get to know the ins and outs of the details of my case, which made me feel very comfortable and confident in him. He was also very honest with me with his opinions in what he felt the Judge and opposing counsel would do, so I would not waste my time or money chasing rabbits.

Foreclosure fraud
Brian helped me with a fraudulent foreclosure. He is extremely competent and easy to work with. He is very thorough and explains the process in laymen's terms. My case ended successfully and I cant thank him enough.

MY FAVORITE ATTORNEY
Brian Miller represented me in a legal issue in which I was extremely upset and confused about the process. He made me feel comfortable and at ease with great communication. He is fair and knows the laws well. I would refer him to a friend in need of legal help.

FRAUDULENT FORECLOSURE
Brian provided professional and effective prosecution of our case. He was a wise counselor and a very competent advocate against a very tough and very wealthy defendant. I believe we achieved the best outcome possible in our case, thanks to Brian's excellent representation.

Thorough and reliable
Brian Miller continues to represent our non-profit organization. He was instrumental in finalizing the language for an initiative and gave sound advice throughout the process, even though it mean his correct guidance meant no profit for him. He has gained an enormous amount of political experience that is essential for decision-making. Trustworthy, conscientious and good at listening, Brian is open and honest. If there is a question he doesn't know the answer to, he finds the answer from experts in the field.

Foreclosure Fraud
We hired Brian Miller over a year ago. He has been very professional and has gone above and beyond to seek the answers that are necessary and pertinent to our case. We are still in the lawsuit but, are very confident in his work and that our case will be won.

Brian Miller is the bomb
Brian Miller is my voice in the legal system. Without such a talented and dedicated attorney I would have been lost. He is fueled by compassion and not the dollars at the end.

Brian's efforts
Brian Miller represented me in a case against us bank and I did win the case not as much as I wanted but he did make sure my money was given back and made them be fair about it.when they tried to offer 2,000 dollars to me Brian wasn't having it.in the end they settled at a fair amount out of court. his communication is very good and he is straight to the point.if your wanting something specific ask Brian he won't b.s you by any means.he is a good attorney.the only reason I put a 4 star rating is cause I wanted to go after them for fraud and brian is an attorney that knows his stuff i dont.he advised me cause of certain circumstances the jury most likely would not would be in my favor and we could lose.he did not want me to gamble on that.
