This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
Mr. Todd Miller's Advice Was Spot On, thank you so much!
Mr. Miller did not have to provide me with advice local attorneys charge $300 for. I was served a bogus lawsuit on Christmas Eve and Mr. Todd Miller kindly offered advice I will follow because the attorney I found on Avvo locally said exactly what Mr. Miller kindly said. When someone ask's for help on Avvo regarding their situation its best to remember professionals like Mr. Miller are basically giving you a free $300-$500 consultation by speaking one word. Thank you Mr. Miller for helping me locate a great attorney who confirmed exactly what you and a fellow Avvo professional said. If I lived near him I would hire him because he is willing to freely water and I hope God blesses such a great man!

So grateful to Todd and Lesley for solving a serious problem for an out of state Cal Driver...
One of those days that keeps getting worse...Beware of speed limits in Missouri, we had a family emergency and i was travelling almost 40 mph over the posted...Todd Miller performed a legal miracle and my ticket was reduced to just a speeding violation and drops off my record in a year. I have to believe his standing in the Capital/Mid Mo area and reputation helped save a tourist who would have been made an example of... It was a bit of luck to find Mr Miller, thanks again for saving a dark day. Best regards~GPC

Driving Infraction
Mr. Miller provided excellent advice and was a definite factor in resolving a complex drivers license related issue involving the Missouri Department of Revenue and the State of Missouri legal statues. His involvement allowed me to keep my driving license privilege intact, which otherwise would have been revoked.

Probate Client
When my sister passed away, I had several questions for Mr. Miller. I had known him for along time and him he had stressed for a long time that it was real important that it would be the best thing to have an Living Will and Power Attorney in place in case something was to happen. I never would of thought at the young age of my sister that this would be true. She passed away with out one and Mr. Miller was very helpful. He step in and help my family with probate matters. He talked with me and my parents and lead us through the whole matter and was a very easy going matter for me and my family in which we settled her matters with her bills and on her home with out any problems. We want to let everyone know that we learned something going though the matter and we found that after the fact that we ended up preparing Living Wills and Power of Attorney's so that we would have or matters in order in the end.

Very satisfied and would not hesitate to recommend. His staff and him were always responsive and attentive to my case and never missed a detail/date or filing.

Top Notch Attorney
During my recent divorce I could not have asked for better representation. Mr. Miller was extremely knowledgeable about my case and was able to tell me exactly the outcome when I first hired him. Clients need someone that will be upfront and honest with them about their case, not someone that tells them what they want to hear. Mr. Miller was able to do exactly that. Along with his expertise he is a man of great character. Truthfulness and integrity are very important to me and I KNOW I hired the best!
