About Sebastian

Learn Sebastian’s areas of practice.

Sebastian Miller primarily handles lawsuits and arbitrations for employees who were wrongfully terminated. Mr. Miller exclusively represents employees and charges a contingency fee in all litigation matters. Most of his cases are for whistleblower retaliation, discrimination based on a protected characteristic, or the failure to accommodate a disability. Mr. Miller also represents victims of sexual and racial harassment. Further, he represents employees in fraud and misrepresentation cases against employers, including regarding equity compensation.

Mr. Miller has recovered over $10,000,000 for clients since 2015. This includes more than $1,500,000 from three different arbitration awards, twelve settlements of at least $300,000 each, and about thirty different cases that have resolved in the “six figures.”  He has served as lead counsel in more than ten matters that have proceeded to a final award, verdict, judgment or decision before an arbitrator, an administrative body, a court of law or similar fact finder.

In addition, executives and professionals hire Mr. Miller to assist with negotiating employment agreements and separation terms. When handling these hourly-fee matters, Mr. Miller draws on knowledge about relevant market terms that stems from seven years of BigLaw experience as well as relationships with leaders in key industry spaces. His key areas of focus are: venture capital, private equity, asset management, technology startups, larger technology employers, professional services firms, and the insurance industry.

In 2005, Mr. Miller earned a Bachelor of Arts in economics from the University of California, Los Angeles and then obtained his Juris Doctor from the University of Chicago Law School in 2008. He is admitted to practice in both New York and California. Mr. Miller has written pieces for the California Labor and Employment Law Review and the Daily Journal and has presented to the California Bar Association’s Labor and Employment Law Section.

Mr. Miller has an office in Santa Clara and is available to meet with clients there when appropriate. His primary office, however, is in Carmel.

I would hire Sebastian a thousand times if needed!
Sebastians knowledge and skills are simply unmatched. I consulted with several lawyers and you can’t go wrong hiring him. He listens and is great at communicating with you as a client. My case was not only difficult personally but also took an emotional toll on me and my family and he was always available to answer any questions I had. Sebastian always made me feel as if my wellbeing was the number one priority. During the entire process, Sebastian kept me informed on what steps he was taking and what the status of my case was. Needless to say he won my case with great results. To this day he still answer any questions I have. I am extremely great full to have found him as a lawyer. Highly recommended!!

Recently Retained Sebastian As My Attorney
After speaking with a few straight out rude Attorneys regarding discrimination against me for disability at my Employer, I was referred to Sebastian by another very nice Employee Law Attorney. He was very professional, truly listened to me and was compassionate towards my disability. He didn't cut me off, rush me off the phone or disregard what I had to say. He was honest about his thoughts regarding my case and told me that he would love to be be my attorney and represent me, if I chose to move forward with him. He made me feel very comfortable and made it easy for me to discuss what I had been through. I have decided he is the right Attorney to fight for me and I would highly recommend anyone else in the same situation to contact him. Even if you are unsure if your claims are valid and need some quick advice, he is very knowledgeable and will be upfront with you whether he feels you have a case or not. You can hear almost immediately in his voice, unlike most of the Attorneys I contacted, he actually cares about your situation and will do whatever he can to obtain the best outcome for you.
