About

Law Office of James Ryland Miller, PLLC

The Law Office of James Ryland Miller, PLLC is primarily an internet-based law office; also called a virtual law office. This means that the law office uses the telephone, e-mail, other technology, and the postal service to render legal services as opposed to the traditional multiple in-office visits to the lawyer. This means that you don't have to take time off of work or free your busy schedule in order to make an in-office appointment.

However, just because we are a virtual law office does not mean that Mr. Miller is a “virtual lawyer”; Mr. Miller maintains a valid and active license to practice law in the state of Texas.

Estate planning, business entity formations, small-business, outside general counsel services, and asset protection practice in Texas is highly suitable to virtual practice, saving overhead for the lawyer, saving attorney’s fees for the client, and providing alternatives to the traditional in-office appointment at a lawyer’s office. Modern technology has greatly changed the practice of law; Texas Internet LLCs and Mr. Miller leverage this technology to provide benefits to our clients.

However, the law office does occasionally see clients in-office, particularly those clients in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex area who don't want online-only service, our Dallas-Fort Worth probate matters, and those clients with other litigation matters, in the law office's Arlington office. Because of the extra time and expense of holding in-office appointments, these matters frequently have increased fees and expenses. In an effort to save clients time and money, however, we try to perform as much work as we can over the Internet and through the postal service as possible.

Legal background

James Ryland Miller is a lawyer licensed in Texas that practices estate planning, probate, and small-business law, including LLCs, Limited Partnerships, outside general counsel services, asset protection, and small business law.

Mr. Miller wants to protect his clients' legal rights while helping them understand the legal effect of their documents or decisions. He believes the client should feel completely free to ask questions and not be "talked down to".

Mr. Miller also understands real-world business issues because he is a real-estate investor and manages a residential rental company. Having "skin in the game" has given him extra perspective for solving business issues.

Further, Mr. Miller's estate planning services include wills, trusts, estate-tax planning, special needs or supplement needs trusts, LGBT planning, and other services. Mr. Miller wants to help protect your family and to help you pass on as much of your hard-earned property to your loved ones while minimizing headaches, time, and taxes.

Mr. Miller further believes that a law firm lives or dies by receiving referrals from satisfied current and former clients. If you’re unhappy, we want to know why immediately so we can try to fix the issue now and for the future, and to see if there is any way to “make things right” with you.
