Miller Barondess, LLP is a Los Angeles-based firm specializing in litigation, including trials, appeals, arbitrations, and mediations in California and around the country. Trial lawyer Skip Miller founded the firm in 2006 with his sons Dan and Jim and partners Mark Barondess and Sasha Frid.

Our firm’s size and team structure allow us the flexibility to provide tailored counsel and personalized services in an efficient manner. We represent individuals, businesses, and public and private entities in a wide range of sectors, including intellectual property, technology, real estate, healthcare, securities, entertainment and music, sports, consumer products, patents, insurance, retail, environmental, licensing and branding, financial services, and government. With a reputation for victories in “bet-the-company” cases, the firm is often hired to “save the day” before trial.

Trials and Appeals

Our record of success lies in working with clients strategically, considering the potential downside risks of trials and appeals, and making the most of opportunities to develop the law. Our team's procedural expertise, rigorous research, careful record review, creativity, and top-notch writing skills help clients achieve wins, keep their wins, and reverse their losses in appeals.


Recognizing that it is often in the client's best interest to resolve a case, our team advises clients on the strategic considerations involved in mediation. Our mediation strategy incorporates the client's short- and long-term goals and overall considerations of conserving time, stress, and resources. Our team has been highly successful in achieving significant mediation settlements through innovative negotiation strategies.
