McMillen Law Firm practices primarily in the area of professional malpractice, including legal and medical malpractice. We will sometimes accept other types of cases involving very significant injuries or wrongful death. Approximately 90% of our work is handling malpractice cases.
If we accept your case, no deposit is required and we will advance all expenses. We do not charge an attorney’s fee or for any of the expenses if you do not receive a recovery.
We pride ourselves on the personal service we give to each of our clients. In order to continue to provide this level of service, we limit our practice to only a select number of cases, so that we can give each case a great deal of personal attention. To do this, we must turn down far more cases than we accept, and if we turn your case down it does not necessarily mean you do not have a viable case.
While our firm started in Orlando and its main office is there, for many years we have handled cases throughout Florida, and even out of state. To serve you better, we are available to meet with you in our Orlando office, or in any of our locations maintained in convenient business centers throughout Florida.
When it is advantageous to you, we will also associate with other law firms in some areas of the state to serve you better. If we do associate with other lawyers on your case, it will be at no additional attorney fee or expense to you.
