Brian G. Miller has established himself as an experienced and accomplished trial lawyer who is a leader in the field of personal injury law. Mr. Miller has been recognized with many of his profession's top honors and accolades. Since 2013 he has been recognized annually within The Best Lawyers in America for his work in the field of personal injury litigation. Similarly, Mr. Miller has been named annually to Ohio's Super Lawyer list since 2010. This distinction recognizes the top 5% of attorneys statewide, though Mr. Miller has previously been recognized by his peers as among the even more exclusive 'Top 100' lawyers across all disciplines for the State of Ohio and 'Top 50' Columbus Super Lawyers. In 2019, he was named the Ohio Super Lawyers “Lawyer of the Year” for Personal Injury Litigation in Columbus, Ohio. The “Lawyer of the Year” honor is reserved for the top lawyer in each practice area in each metropolitan area (as determined by peer nomination and voting). This prestigious designation compliments Mr. Miller’s growing list of accolades, which in addition to Best Lawyers and Ohio Super Lawyers, also includes recognition on America’s Top 100 High Stakes Litigators and the National Trial Lawyer’s “Top 100.” Mr. Miller also enjoys a pre-eminent “AVA rating” within his profession based through Martindale-Hubbel, a rating that draws upon confidential reviews of the members of the Bar and Judiciary. This distinction reflects the highest possible rating in both legal ability and ethical standards.
Mr. Miller’s success, both in and out of the courtroom, is reflected by a significant verdict which he obtained in 2017 against FirstEnergy Corp. This verdict was honored as a Top 100 verdict in the United States by the National Law Journal. In addition, Columbus Business First recognized this verdict as being the largest verdict it has recorded since 2007.
Mr. Miller is a former Assistant Franklin County Prosecuting Attorney. During his career stage as a felony prosecutor, he earned respect for his abilities as a trial lawyer from the judges in the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas, a reputation he continues to enjoy today in his private civil trial practice. He further honed those trial skills as a graduate of the National Institute of Trial Advocacy. Mr. Miller's courtroom abilities have been recognized by the Central Ohio Association for Justice, which in 2012 presented Mr. Miller with its 'Louisville Slugger's' Award, given annually to an attorney for an outstanding civil trial verdict. He is also a lifetime member of the national “Million Dollar” and “Multi-Million Dollar” Advocates Forums.
