Dedicated to representing people in courts of law.

I have seen the life changing effects that a single legal decision can have on a person’s future. Some cases create new opportunities for a better life, and other cases stave off potential jeopardy and misfortune. That is why I take the time and energy to give my best effort to each client.

Client-focused legal strategies to maximize results.

Every person is unique with their own strengths and weaknesses. A legal case is the same way. We want to emphasize your strengths while minimizing any weaknesses. I develop a custom-tailored blueprint for success in your case because the best approach is the one suited specifically to you.

“I have worked with a number of attorneys in over 30 years of practicing law. Few are as talented as Mr. Miksis. I would recommend him to family, friend or total stranger, without hesitation or reservation. Would remain confident thereafter that the client would receive the finest in legal representation!”

Experienced Criminal Defense and Personal Injury Attorney

An arrest is serious business. It can affect your life for days, months, and even years. Furthermore, it can affect those around you such as spouses, children, relatives, and friends. My job is to help clients regain control of their lives and exercise legal rights in courts of law. A good defense should begin as soon as possible because the State Attorney’s Office is already working on their side of the case.

When it comes to injury cases, I deal with a wide spectrum of fact patterns. On the day that people first visit my office, they are often still in physical pain and their life is disrupted. They do not know what to do about medical treatment and insurance companies. I provide the stability and guidance needed during that period of uncertainty. I instruct clients to focus on recovering from their injuries while I deal with insurance adjusters and manage the legal claim.
