Our Expertise

We Fix People’s Lives

Millars Law is driven by a commitment to excellence and empathy.

When you need a lawyer, you need peace of mind. This comes from knowing that someone skilled and trustworthy is on your side and defending your interests.

We recognize that the “client” is the business. If our client isn’t happy, well informed, or satisfied, then we haven’t done our job.
Choose to work with us because we care and we will advocate in your interests while exceeding expectations.

Our goal is to redefine how lawyers are perceived and reinvent the concept of legal services.

Our Expertise

The most common comment we receive from clients after our initial consult is “You made me/us feel safe and hopeful. Your perspective and team gave us some peace of mind.”

Being a lawyer is more than just memorizing the law, it is about knowing how to fix problems that put your life, health, job and family at risk, our expertise is solving your problems so you can sleep knowing your interests are protected by fierce advocates.

As a former Combat Officer, Phillip Millar brings a refreshing approach to law. He served his country for over a decade and experienced battle firsthand overseas.
Phillip has appeared at all levels of court including the Ontario Court of Appeal. He firmly believes in providing his clients with wise counsel, not incentives to spend more on legal fees.

Very few lawyers get actual trial experience these days. In order to get the best settlement you need a lawyer with a proven track record of winning in Court…. in Trial. Paper tigers are not good enough to get you what you deserve. The insurance companies know who has the character and courage to take them to trial and factor this into their settlement offers.

 

Personal Injury

When someone or something has hurt you we are there for you.

We mean that.

Whether you have slipped or fallen, been in a car accident, been hurt by somebody or something it is in your interest to be informed.

We have the legal and medical knowledge to help. Some injuries manifest themselves into very serious ailments months after the accident. Do not sign away your claim to compensation.

You must be able to trust your lawyer explicitly and a billboard advertisement saying a lawyer works in your city when in fact they are actually located hundreds of miles away is not a reliable first step to building trust. Phillip is pleased to have a no pressure discussion with you about your case at any time. You need this important knowledge to make the right decision about your case; so that you…. and your family… and your future, are protected.

Millars Law Difference

Millars Lawyers is one of the few law firms that employs its own investigation team called Red Dot Insights. The team is comprised of highly skilled former police and military operators who conduct research and investigate the other side aggressively. These are not your average Private Investigators who work for insurance companies, these are highly skilled operators at gathering intelligence and fact-finding.

Millars Lawyers is the only law firm that has within its walls a secure room that is impenetrable to electronic surveillance and detects any recording devices present in the room.  This ensures your privacy and security. Similar to the rooms used in the military when Mr. Millar served in NATO HQs this meeting room is fully insulated to allow for frank and honest strategy discussions.

Wills & Power of Attorneys

You Can Rely on the Millars Law Team

COVID-19 taught us that a will and medical power of attorney are a necessity, not a privilege.

At Millars law we saw that the average citizen can’t afford a will and POA. We then looked at the pricing and found a way to make them accessible to everyone. That is why we offer standard Will and POA packages at the lowest rate anywhere in the province. We know that if you feel secure that your family is taken care of that you will come to us when you need help.

 What started during COVID-19 as a way of offering first responders affordable estate planning has expanded to the whole community. If you need a Will and POA and can’t afford our lowest price offering we will still consider providing you one for free. We truly believe this is important and want to give back to the community even if it means we don’t make as much money.  Our relationship is worth it. 

Wills & POA

An affordable solution to protect you and your loved ones.

Our Wills & POA’s are affordable. They are easy to access and you will feel so good to know you have this part of your life taken care of. All you need to do is simply fill out the form below and email and we will take of the rest. If you can’t afford a will please be authentic and tell us why and we will consider doing them pro bono on a case by case basis.
