About me

About the Law Office of Paul Miller


I opened the Law Office of Paul Miller in 2003, with the unwavering goal of providing cost-effective, compassionate, and conscientious legal services, while focusing on estate planning, bankruptcy, and general civil law.

I've had the privilege to have helped hundreds of individuals, couples, and families create estate plans that provide them with a true sense of comfort and security.  

I look forward to meeting with you for a free, no-obligation initial consultation to see how I can help you.

About me


I graduated in 2002 with honors from Empire College School of Law in Santa Rosa, after which I opened my law office, working largely as a contract attorney for other local, esteemed attorneys.  During that time, I learned a great deal about estate planning and finely honed my skills as an attorney.  I pride myself in continually learning about the latest developments in the legal field, and providing my clients with cost-effective, highly professional legal services.  I always strive to learn the latest in estate planning and tax law, and to that end, I am currently obtaining my Masters in Tax at Golden Gate University in San Francisco.

I pride myself in being involved with my community.  I'm actively involved with Rebuilding Together and other local charitable organizations.

I am fortunate to be married to a wonderful woman who is a first-grade teacher in Santa Rosa, and I'm blessed to be kept busy with two wonderful young sons, a dog, and backyard chickens
