Very Good
We would like to thank Stan and his firm for helping us set up our trust. We did not know when or how to being with the trust process and he made the process easy and stress free. We feel we now have secured and protected our assets for generations to come. We can call at any time and speak to anyone on staff and be treated like we are family and the only client they have. We highly recommend his firm to anyone looking for asset security and protection.

"I endorse this lawyer. Stan Miller is one of the brightest estate planning attorneys I know. He has taught numerous courses for attorneys in the area and is at the forefront in the area of estate and tax law."
Estate planning Attorney | Apr 06
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"In my over 15 years of law practice, there are a few attorneys to whom I can point that have had the most significant impact on my growth as a lawyer. Stan Miller is one of them. Substantively brilliant and exceptionally practical, Stan is one of those lawyers who knows how to distill the arcane and complex and sift the irrelevant minutiae so that the layman can quickly and easily grasp concepts drawn from 1500 years of legal history and 15000 pages of statutes, regulations, and cases. I cannot endorse this lawyer with enthusiasm that could hope to do justice to his character and class. He is one of the best estate planning lawyers in the country and one who does what he does with qualities rarely found in one man, especially rare among lawyers: good humor, grace and humility."
