"My experience with Ellen Walker and Miller, Miller & Canby over the years has gone well beyond legal counsel. At times of great distress for me, Ellen's kindly approach and the warmth and compassion of the entire Miller, Miller & Canby team helped me get through difficult times dealing with illness and death of members of my immediate family. I was only able to manage my way through such difficult events because I had people on my side to handle the things that were beyond my capacity. I am eternally grateful to Ellen and to the entire Miller, Miller & Canby family."
