Firm Details

Miller & Martin PLLC

Since 1867, Miller & Martin PLLC has helped businesses and individuals achieve their goals practically and efficiently. Today, we are a leading Southeastern law firm with attorneys in three offices that serve clients in more than 50 industries and practice areas. Our clients range from individuals to multi-national corporations. To meet the needs of this diverse client base, our attorneys dedicate themselves to understanding the unique issues facing each client. As a full-service firm with multiple practice groups, we can address virtually any legal challenge.


Miller & Martin has grown as its clients have prospered. Many early clients, such as the original bottler of Coca-Cola, have evolved from local concerns into global enterprises. We understand that the experience we have gained in serving our clients is our greatest resource. Our attorneys draw on that experience to serve clients locally, nationally and globally.


Because today's complex legal environment demands lawyers with substantial knowledge and experience, the firm is organized into practice and industry groups. These groups help foster the continuous professional development of attorneys and staff. Committed to serving as a strategic resource to our clients, Miller & Martin strives to provide intelligence, relevant to today's trending topics. "Miller & Martin Mornings" is an event-series aimed at providing in depth discussions around topics of the moment, which present challenges to those in business leadership roles.


Miller & Martin's attorneys have established relationships with numerous legal and professional organizations, including international associations, local and state economic developments and chamber-based business groups. Miller & Martin is a member of the World Law Group, an international network of 52 leading independent law firms with more than 315 offices in 65 countries. This affiliation allows us to access legal services worldwide and enhance our ability to handle every aspect of our clients' business and legal needs, wherever they are needed.


Successfully navigating the modern world requires an understanding and an appreciation of different cultures, experiences and perspectives which ultimately, benefits both the firm and its clients. In hiring and retaining attorneys and staff, Miller & Martin remains committed to achieving a diverse workplace.


Following in the tradition of our firm's founders, Miller & Martin seeks to serve and support the community. It is our belief that by strengthening the community in which we work and live, we enrich the quality of life for everyone. Our attorneys and staff are leaders in many civic, charitable and governmental institutions. We also believe in helping the poor to access justice and provide pro bono legal services.
