A Trusted Real Estate And Injury Attorney

It’s a fact of life that people get injured doing their job. When they do, they expect their employer to be supportive. Accidents occur in seconds and can change all facets of life just as quickly. When you have injuries, it can be difficult to get through the various types of legal issues that arise afterward. If you or someone you love is seriously injured in an accident, it is important to contact an attorney immediately.

I can help you create a plan to navigate through not only the various stages of filing an injury claim, but I am also a Chicago attorney who will be your advocate for any type of real estate or estate planning matter that you need to address.

Personable Legal Representation

I have more than 30 years of experience helping clients across Greater Chicago. I founded my own law practice, The Law Offices of James H. Miller, Jr., in 1992 intent on providing the kind of personable legal guidance I would want as a client.

In real estate, I address the needs of residential and commercial transactions, foreclosure defense and real estate litigation. I know that real estate is often the most significant investment a person makes in life. I will ensure that your purchase or sale progresses smoothly, I’ll work to resolve a dispute or help you understand your options if you face foreclosure.

Assertive Representation For The Injured

It’s a fact of life that many people get injured doing their job. When they do, they expect their employer to be supportive but not all employers are focusing on their employees’ best interests. Accidents occur in seconds and can change lives just as quickly. If you or someone you love is seriously injured in an accident on the job or otherwise, it is important to contact an attorney immediately.

In workers’ compensation and personal injury cases, I put passion back into compassion by ensuring that you receive the medical treatment you need and aggressively pursuing the full financial recovery you deserve.

What My Clients Say About My Services

“Jim Miller was recommended to me for the purchase of my first home in 2017. He was professional and fair and helped me negotiate the terms of closing to fit my needs. As a first time home buyer, Jim made me feel confident and comfortable as he patiently explained anything and everything to me throughout the process. I called on Jim again for the purchase of my next home in 2022, and the sale of my condo in 2023. He makes the process frictionless and is a lot of fun throughout! My condo closed when I was out of the country, and Jim handled the power of attorney process very well. He did exactly as I had directed and the sale went through with absolutely no issues due to his forethought and careful planning with me. I have heard that it is rare to close on real estate transactions on time, but with Jim I have successfully done so on 3 occasions! I will be using his services again soon for estate planning and myself and my partner are looking forward to his straightforward and level-headed approach and counsel”

– Jillian J

“I suffered a knee and back injury due to a slip and fall in my place of employment in 2017. Jim was extremely knowledgeable on the Workers compensation process. He walked me thru every step. There was never a time I reached out and could not talk to Jim. He’s very patient, personable and professional. I was very satisfied with the settlement I received. I would definitely refer him for all legal matters.”
