About My Law Practice

Whether you are wrestling with a legal dispute or protecting your interests in a real estate transaction, it is important to know that your lawyer understands your goals and is completely committed to achieving them.

At The Law Offices of James H. Miller, Jr., my commitment to each client is never in doubt. After working at two Chicago-area law firms, I launched my own practice in 1992 with the sole intent of providing the type of personalized legal counsel that I would want if I needed an attorney. I represent clients throughout Cook and DuPage counties, as well as surrounding Illinois counties.

When you hire me, you work with me and no one else. I have more than 25 years of experience in all aspects of real estate law, workers’ compensation and personal injury cases.

Because I often work with injured individuals, I am committed to letting them focus on recuperating while I protect their legal rights. I strive to resolve disputes efficiently so my clients can move forward with their lives. Oftentimes, I reach agreement without the need to go to trial. However, I am an accomplished litigator who is always prepared to advocate for my clients in court when a fair agreement cannot be reached through negotiations.

It is my goal to put my clients at ease from day one. I attempt to reduce stress by providing a professional and personable environment in which clients have confidence that their legal needs are being handled by an experienced attorney.

I offer injured parties a free telephone consultation in which I can answer your questions and recommend an effective course of action. Workers’ compensation and personal injury cases are handled on a contingency fee basis, which means I only collect an attorney fee if I obtain a recovery for you. For real estate disputes, I provide a flat-fee initial consultation.
