How I Got Here
I didn't start my professional career as an attorney.
After graduating from college I was awarded a Fulbright-Hays Scholarship for study in Damascus Syria. I spent over two and a half years in the Middle East and North Africa studying the languages and cultures of the region.
Upon returning to the United States I received my Master’s Degree from the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) and began my professional career with Booz Allen Hamilton as a consultant to the United States government.
The work was interesting and the pay was good. Yet, I didn’t feel that I was helping anyone on an individual level.
Resolving to make a change, I went back to school for my law degree and upon graduation immediately began my legal career as a Public Defender. After twelve years of service and over 45 jury trials that have ranged from public intoxication to murder, I have seen it all.
Along the way I have taken the time to communicate to high school, college, and law students the value and meaning of our constitutional rights that we all share.
I made the right choice and my commitment remains: to provide counsel to those in need, and zealously defend the rights of my clients.
Provided me with detailed information!
I submitted a consultation through Mr. Miller and he responded to me. My inquiry was about potentially getting a previous charge appealed. Not only was his information extremely thorough and complete, but provided me with detailed information as to the timeline and why I would not be able to do so, providing alternative options to each one. He looked up my case in the Virginia Court System and gave me accurate dates along with the timeline of expiration. In the end, while I was not able to appeal my case, Mr. Miller provided me with detailed information on each option that would have been afforded to me along with the time I would have had to make such a claim to appeal. He also apologies to me telling me that it probably isn’t what I want to hear, however again it was great information. I then asked about a potential pardon from the VA Governor and he researched that information providing me with the exact same information to go through the process. I had only mentioned it and he offered and provided extensive information to complete the process. If the need ever arises, I will contact this firm and have them represent me. I can say that after speaking with other attorney’s in the area, Mr. Miller provided THOROUGH and complete, accurate information with detailed timelines and dates that had me understand exactly what I needed to have done and any other options the first time. If you are considering hiring this firm, I would STRONGLY recommend you hire this attorney.

William was very thorough, responsive and effective in his successful representation of me in my case. I give him my highest recommendation to anyone who is seeking representation. He is very professional and good at building rapport while maintaining confidentiality.

The Greatest Lawyer in America
Mr. Bill Miller is the greatest lawyer in America. I want not just America but the whole world to know he is the greatest lawyer of all time. His expertise, faith, hope, trust and his fights are just extra ordinary to his clients. I am one of his past clients and was blessed to have him represent me. Mr. Miller keep on keeping on.
