Evelina Miller is the founding partner of The Miller Family Law Group. Evelina provides the firm’s clients with comprehensive family law representation that includes division of marital assets and liabilities, custody, support, and adoptions.

Due to her educational background in psychology, more specifically, her graduate studies under Dr. Allen W. Gottfried, who developed the methodology for the child custody evaluations utilized in family law cases today, Evelina possesses a unique and broad range of experience that assists her in understanding, explaining and litigating complex custody issues including, but not limited to, issues of parental alienation, domestic violence, child abuse, and international custody disputes involving the application of the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction.

 

Prior to founding the firm, Evelina clerked for the Honorable John Watson of the California Superior Court, worked as a Certified Sexual Assault Counselor at an Orange County non-profit organization called Community Service Programs, Inc., and worked for the Orange County Family Law Facilitator’s office where she assisted individuals with child support issues.

 

Evelina received her Juris Doctor (J.D.) from Western State University College of Law in 2007, and her Bachelors of Arts (B.A.) in Psychology and Criminal Justice from California State University, Fullerton in 2002.

Professional
I had retained Evelina's husband Matt as my attorney and soon found out he had a lovely partner that just happened to be his wife. She is professional and most of all, I feel she is the most ethical person I have ever encountered. Her and Matt where so patient as my divorce took six years (2009- 2015) to complete as my husband had many issues that prevented him from completing his side of the divorce. She is excellent in responding by email. I would highly recommend her services.

Thank you for your knowledgable help and support
I went to the Miller law group during a very difficult time and I had a very lengthy consultation with Matt and Ewelina Miller. The consultation was free of charge and they never once made me like they were selling thei services, they made me feel safe and I knew they had my back before I even signed with their firm. They handled every bit of the paperwork and had it filed with the Orsnge County Superior Court. They dealt with my Husbands Attorney and slways kept me informed. They were so awesome I recommended them to a very dear friend and she also used them, an feels the same way I did. I would recommend them to anyone I care about in need of legal counsel.

Ewelina Szewczyk review
Ewelina was a good listener and understood my concerns. I was given advise that set my mind at ease. I did not ever feel pressured. All in all, I do and will continue to recommend Ewelina to anyone seeking a family law attorney.

Very professional
Dealt with Ms. Szewczyk on a family law matter. Very professional and well prepared, client appeared to be well informed and calm. Counsel was not confrontational or combative in her representation which made it easy to reach an amicable settlement with. Believe attorney is fluent in polish, would recommend this attorney for both simple and complicated matters, but especially those matters pertaining to polish speaking clients.

Bulldog that is hard to reach
I retained Evelina very last minute before the holidays and she was great at coming to my aid. She definitely did not seem interested in my case until I paid her retainer but afterwards was on the ball and a bulldog who crossed her T's and dotted her I's. She's also great at foreseeing and communicating about future issues. There were some parts of a parenting plan that I was going to agree to, that she explained the weight of how that could adversely affect things down the road. That was super helpful, and I haven't found another attorney quite like that. After she helped take care of the action that needed immediate attention her office put me on the back burner even though there were more court hearings and problems we had to tend to. There were times that I tried to contact her and she would either call back from a private number or not at all. Not easy to get in touch with when you need them and definitely don't care to ignore you for weeks. I ended up having to find a new attorney who would answer my calls.
