Millar Law Firm is a well-established boutique law firm in San Francisco's Financial District. Our office has over 20 years of civil litigation experience in the San Francisco Bay Area. We handle multiple trials each year in Bay Area Courts. We take pride in our performance and record at trial. We have earned a reputation before Bay Area judges for aggressive and winning advocacy. Our attorneys have worked in both the public and private sectors, both criminal and civil law, as well as having worked in both large and small firms. We are well-respected by other firms in the Bay Area legal community. Our attorneys and staff speak fluent Spanish.

We have a variety of fee structures we offer our clients. Most personal injury cases, and some affirmative tenant matters, are handled on a contingency fee basis. These clients do not pay a fee to our office, unless they win their case. Almost all cases that are not handled on a contingency fee basis are billed at our hourly rates. Our rates are very reasonable compared to other Bay Area firms. A few select matters are handled on a flat fee basis, such as eviction notices.

We work with a number of attorneys who specialize in areas of the law that we do not handle. We are always happy to help arrange these referrals for our clients.
