Mr. Miller joined Weir Bowen in 1991 and since then his practice has been focused almost exclusively on advising and representing plaintiffs in medical malpractice cases.

As the father of four boys, Mr. Miller has been active in coaching hockey and soccer as well as volunteering with various Minor Hockey Associations. His interest in children extends to his profession, as he has a special interest in birth cases, cases involving injuries to children, and women’s issues. He has litigated many medical malpractice cases involving children with cerebral palsy, brachial plexus / erb’s palsies, traumatic brain injury due to forceps or vacuum deliveries and injuries arising from intra-uterine growth restriction.

Mr. Miller has conducted seminars and delivered a number of presentations on medical malpractice issues for lawyers and doctors, as well as on trial advocacy.




In 2010 Mr. Miller was appointed a Queen’s Counsel by the Lieutenant Governor in Council. The announcement of the appointment by the Justice Minister noted that this designation recognizes outstanding expertise, work and contributions in a lawyer’s public life.

Mr. Miller is also listed in three peer reviewed directories. Lawyers throughout Canada are asked to assess and rate other lawyers on their expertise.
