Mr. Miller's primary focus for every case is to achieve his client's desired results in a way that minimizes the financial and emotional cost to his client and family. As such, it is important to Mr. Miller that his clients thoroughly understand their options to litigate, mediate, or collaborate their divorce or family law issue, and that they understand the financial and emotional toll that each option might entail. Mr. Miller's litigation clients appreciate his mediation skills and experience in helping to settle their case in a favorable and cost-effective manner. Similarly, his mediation and collaborative divorce clients appreciate his litigation and court room knowledge and experience which is helpful in setting realistic expectations and in reaching comprehensive settlement agreements.
Outside of the office and the court room, Mr. Miller has volunteered his time as a former committee member of the Placer County Temporary Judge and Attorney Mediator program. He is also an active member of the Sacramento Collaborative Practice Group and has volunteered his time to participate in presentations in the region explaining litigation, mediation, and collaborative divorce options and process for divorcing families. Mr. Miller has also been a guest speaker on the topic of divorce mediation and collaborative divorce at McGeorge School of Law.
Mr. Miller has worked in the divorce and family law area of law exclusively since 1996 in both administrative and legal capacities.
