Highly recommend Attorney Miles!
Our family was very pleased with Janice's probate work. She is a wonderful person who got a lot of respect in the courtroom from the court staff and the judge. It was hard losing my parents, and she took the weight off our shoulders for the legal stuff. Janice was understanding, quick and efficient. We all recommend her highly!!

Probate
My wife's mother and father died within a few months of each other. We were so sad about it, plus all the hassle of the court system. Janice did everything we needed with ease. We called around and know she also charges a very fair fee. We recommend her highly.

Good Probating my Husband's Estate
My husband died unexpectedly after a knee replacement. My daughter and I were at a loss to know how to proceed with the estate and probate. We are so blessed to have found Janice Miles, who was knowledgeable about Probate, as well as good to our whole family. She told us what we needed and finished everything with Probate Court, so we could settle everything. She's the best.

Great Probate Lawyer
I had Ms. Miles do a probate on my mother's estate. I thought I would have an issue with my younger sister on mother's estate, but Ms. Miles made it all go smoothly. My sister ended up agreeing to a settlement, and she said later it was because she knew the lawyer Ms. Miles was a good and honest woman. I agree, she's wonderful.

She helped with Probate when my Brother Died
Miles did our Probate for us after my brother died without a will. The death was unexpected, and she knew just what to do. It took all the weight off us. Miles was the only lawyer we called who did not insist on knowing the "size of my brother's estate" before we were quoted a price. She is a fair compassionate person. Wholly recommend her on every level.

Excellent Lawyer
I've had the need to utilize Ms. Miles' services twice, and both times, she has been very responsive to my needs. She is highly qualified and very empathetic to her clients. I highly recommend Ms. Miles to anyone for any legal need.

Was very accessible & offered excellent advice
After I read some advice that Janice had provided via Avvo, I called her to ask a related question. She took the call immediately, was very professional yet friendly, and advised me what my next step should be. Unfortunately, her office is quite some distance from where I live or I would have hired her immediately!

Fast, Friendly, Affordable
Realy great lawyer. Answered my call immediately, and she's fast. Fixed my ticket the next day. I called around and the price was the lowest I found. Miles got me reduced traffic fines. One ticket dismissed, one deferred for 30 days then dismissed off my record. My highest rating for Janice Miles.

Fantastic Lawyer
I was referred to Ms. Miles by the OAG's office. She responded to my phone call promptly, was very courteous and professional. My case was regarding collecting past due child support. She kept me updated on the case, returned my phone calls promptly and answered my questions/concerns. She resolved my case swiftly. I would recommend her to others.

Speeding Ticket
Janice Miles did an amazing job on my speeding ticket. I gave it to her on Monday, and the ticket was taken care of by Friday of the same week. It is not going on my driving record, and Janice Miles was very affordable, much less expensive than any other lawyer I talked to about my ticket. Wow! I am impressed.

Great lawyer
Ms. Miles did a fantastic job on my case. Her price was very competitive compared to the other lawyers I talked to. She won our case for us, because she would not give up. She answered my calls pronto, gave good advice, and got my work done quickly. I recommend her highly.
