He is a Bulldog
He was my Son’s lawyer. Great outcome in that divorce case. He was my Granddaughter’s lawyer. Great outcome in that criminal case and gave her great advice afterwards. After referrals from both of them, my husband and I hired him for a probate case. Case still pending.

Biography

Attorney Todd Miller's record of exemplary professional conduct has allowed him to become one of the most sought after attorneys in Mid-Missouri. Mr. Miller manages a full-service litigation firm he founded in 2006 that represents clients in both civil and criminal cases with a focus on bankruptcy; debt collections (for creditors); civil litigation; criminal law; traffic law - speeding tickets and DWI; property tax; business and commercial law; real estate; municipal law; legal counsel representation; elder law; wrongful death; personal injury; wills and trusts; and estate planning law. He earned his J.D. at the University of Missouri School of Law in Columbia, MO, and earned his B.S. at Lincoln University in Jefferson City, MO where he graduated with honors (cum laude). He is a longstanding and active member of the Missouri Bar and several of its subcommittees and he was most recently recognized by that distinguished organization for his contribution to educate Missouri lawyers. In addition to the Missouri Bar, he is a past and/or present member of the American Bar Association, the Cole County Bar Association, and the 26th Circuit Court Bar Association. He frequently writes and speaks publicly on the topics of bankruptcy; estate planning; elder law; property tax appeals; and litigation.

Legal Answers
3 Questions Answered
Q. Can a lawyer make you send estate money back if he overwrote the check and it’s already cashed?
A: Yes. If the money was never yours to enjoy, the mistaken draft can be terminated and funds requested. For example, if a bank deposits one million in your account by mistake, the funds aren't actually yours.
Q. how may obtain a copy of my uncle's last will & testament of which I am allegedly 1 of the included beneficiaries?
A: If the Will was probated, it is a public record and a copy may be obtained from the clerk of the court in the county where the decedent last resided. For what it's worth, if a probate estate was opened and you weren't notified by mail of any proceedings, there isn't much of a chance that you were included in the Will.
Q. My mother just passed away in Missouri. Her estate is just debt. Do I have to do anything legally?
A: I encourage you to speak with a probate attorney at length to see if there is a need to open a probate estate. In general, if a decedent owned no assets at the time of their death, there is little to do.
