An Attorney with Honor and Integrity
I hired Mr. Miller to handle a delicate civil case for me. I found it very refreshing that he took the time to gain a thorough understanding of my situation and giving me the “pros and cons.” Mr. Miller armed me with the necessary information and knowledge so I decided to go forward. He dove into the case and found information that really helped my position. He kept me well informed and promptly answered all of my questions. His fees were very reasonable but in light of his outstanding service, his fees were actually a bargain. We confidentially settled the case and I received more than I had anticipated. Honor and integrity aren’t words usually associated with many attorneys however, in Mr. Miller’s case, they define him.

This Is Your Attorney/Don't Look Further
I have used James Miller twice; and I must saw it was a great experience even if the circumstances were not. Mr. Miller is friendly, thorough, compassionate and knows his business. James Miller would be the first attorney I would look to even if only for his advice.

Passionate and hard working attorney
Mr Miller treated my case like his own personal case. Very attentive and detail oriented. Always kept me in the loop regarding any progress. Very knowledgeable and seemed to really understand the legal process. I would and have recommended him to friends and family and will continue to do so. Because of Mr Miller, i got out of a tough situation and was able to move on with my life.

Highly Recommended
James was extremely knowledgeable and patient in explaining my situation in a way that made me understand my best options. No one ever expects to need an attorney so when you find yourself in that situation it's comforting to find someone who cares about the outcome as much as you do.

James made a very difficult and confusing situation clear to us and went above and beyond taking the time reviewing our situation and guiding us in our decisions. James is knowledgable and trustworthy and I highly recommend James to anyone needing bankruptcy assistance.

Best lawyer, quick and efficient
I used Mr Miller for some early work and he was very attentive and really listened to my concerns. He completed my contracts quickly and at a very afforable price. He is a one stop shop and is proficient in multiple fields of law. I have continued to use him and he always gives me the best and most professional work. He is down to earth and can relate to any concerns brought before him. I would recommend him highly. Many of my family and friends have used him and no one has been disappointed. I plan on meeting with him again in the next two weeks to discuss some issues relating to bankruptcy and short sales. He is a wealth of information and a valuable consultant.
