Jeffrey B. Miller, Partner
One of the joys of practicing in this firm is that the experience of the lawyers enables us to handle almost any kind of catastrophic case and to pursue the cases which should be pursued. We often work with each other on such cases, to provide perspective, to gain fresh ideas, and simply because enjoyment in working together means we do a better job.
Jeff Miller is certified as a specialist in personal injury and wrongful death law by the State Bar of Arizona. He limits his practice exclusively to the representation of clients who have sustained serious personal injury or have been damaged by professional negligence. Jeff had the largest civil jury verdict in the State in 2005, a $28 million verdict in a complex psychiatric malpractice case. See the Case Results section of our website for further details, as well as a link to the New Times cover story regarding the case.
While it may seem that such areas as medical malpractice, trucking accidents, nursing home abuse and neglect, and birth injuries have little in common, they are of particular interest to Jeff because of the difficulty of the issues and the challenges of the litigation.
Jeff has been a recognized instructor in the area of trucking negligence and has presented an annual seminar to lawyers and to those in the trucking industry for the last several years. Jeff’s long term interest in assisting children led to his involvement in medical malpractice cases involving babies and children with such problems as cerebral palsy. As an experienced motorcycle rider, he has a special understanding of the issues which arise in motorcycle injury cases. With a family background in construction, he also accepts construction site accident litigation.
Jeff is a graduate of Harvard College magna cum laude in Comparative Religion, and is a graduate of New York University Law School. He has served on the boards of several civic, charitable organizations, including the Board of Directors of the Lodestar Day Resource Center, which provides services to the homeless. Notwithstanding his urban Phoenix practice, he lives with his family on a small farm with horses, deer, chickens, goats, donkeys, dogs and cats.
