Attorney John Miller brings his years of experience and his personal attention to each of his clients. METAMORA — Although he started solo practice just a little over a year ago, attorney John Miller brings years of experience to the table for his clients.

Miller did his undergrad work at Oakland University where he earned a bachelor of science degree in Business Management before also earning a master’s degree in Public Administration at OU. After graduating from Thomas Cooley Law School with his Juris Doctor (law) degree, Miller worked as an associate and partner at the Morgan and Miller law firm in Lapeer, working alongside the wellknown and respected local attorney Earl Morgan for three years. While there, Miller served clients in the areas of criminal, probate, personal injury and family law.

Public service then called as Miller went to work at the Lapeer County Prosecutor’s office as Chief Assistant Prosecutor, specializing in criminal law. Miller spent many, many hours preparing and trying the people’s cases against those charged with crimes, working handin hand with local law enforcement to remove convicted criminals from Lapeer County’s streets and neighborhoods.

Returning to private practice last year, Miller brings his wealth of experience, knowledge and skill to bear for his clients. He also brings a personal touch. “With my small, private practice, I don’t necessarily take every case that comes my way. I am accessible to my clients, I will spend the appropriate amount of time on their case and I’ll work for each client to achieve the best possible legal outcome,” Miller says.

Miller’s courtroom experience is a major asset for clients. “Many of my clients are referrals from attorneys who know my skillset matches a certain client’s needs,” said Miller. “Especially in criminal matters, people need an attorney with good trial skills.”

A life-long Lapeer area resident, Miller is active in his church and community. He is a past board member of the Child Advocacy Center of Lapeer and also served as advisory board member for the local chapter of Families Against Narcotics (FAN). Miller currently serves as secretary on the board of The Hundred Club of Genesee, Shiawassee and Lapeer Counties – an organization whose members financially support members and families of law enforcement officials and firefighters who have lost their lives or been injured in the line of duty.

John and his wife Dana Miller, also a long-time resident and Lapeer County Treasurer for the past ten years, are members of the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Lapeer. John grew up on a farm in Mayfield Township which he and his son Mitchell still operate, growing soybeans and occasionally corn.

Miller doesn’t use hyperbole or trendy imagery to tout his experience, integrity or readiness for a court battle on behalf of his clients. “Anyone who knows me, knows that I’m not going to brag or boast. But my clients know well that I’m not one to back down from a fight.”
