Law Offices of Richard T. Miller

Van Nuys

Attorney Richard T. Miller enrolled at Kansas State University immediately following his discharge from the Army in 1974.

“I joined right after high school and didn’t care at the time about furthering my education,” he recalls. “I was discharged with a sense of responsibility and discipline that has served me well over the years. The biggest benefit [of service in the Army] was giving me the ability to focus on the rest of my life.”

After a year at KSU, Miller transferred to Rutgers University, where he received his Bachelor’s  degree in political science in 1980. He moved west to Los Angeles and graduated from Southwestern Law School in 1991 and was admitted to the California State Bar in December of the same year.

For the past 29 years, he has practiced in the areas of real estate, contracts, personal injury defense, probate, aviation-related law.

In addition to his active participation in the SFVBA’s Attorney Referral Service program, Miller is active in a number of other professional organizations including the the Los Angeles County Bar Association, Toastmasters International, as well as Rotary International. He is also affiliated with Phi Delta Phi, the international legal honor society.

An avid private pilot, he is also active in the N.T.S.B. Bar Association. Angel Flight, the Aircraft Owners & Pilots Association, the Experimental Aircraft Association, the Aviation Crime Prevention Institute, and the Lawyer-Pilots Bar Association.
