What Other Attorneys Say About Mr. Millwee

“I have tried hundreds of cases the last three decades all over the country on all types of legal matters. Having a great expert on the key issues in dispute is critical.  Steve Millwee is as good as it gets for a workplace violence case.  He has incredible credentials, is very thorough, and presents very well to a lay jury.  His testimony in my case resulted in a good verdict for our client on a matter that may very well have been lost without his involvement, particularly when we were dealing with a very conservative court in a very conservative jurisdiction”.

Brent W. Coon, Esquire - Board Certified-Civil Trial Law (NBTA) - Board Certified-Personal Injury Trial Law (TBLS)

 

“It was a pleasure working with you and thank you for educating me on so many levels.  I hope we have an opportunity to work together again in the future.  Please also feel free to use our firm as a reference although with your credentials I doubt you ever need one.” Clayton J. Fitzsimmons, Esq. - FITZSIMMONS LAW FIRM PLLC - 2013

 

“There is no shortage of experts. But the best have the ability to comprehend the entire case, to analyze the testimony of every witness and to articulate opinions in a strong, yet clear manner that juries are able to believe. This best defines Steve Millwee.  His dynamic presentation skills are unparalleled. In one instance, Steve’s questions forced the opposing expert’s testimony to differ from his report, and he came to agree with Steve, which proved pivotal in resolving the case in my client’s favor.” James Glober, a Board-Certified Civil Trial Attorney
