About Our Firm
BIRTH INJURY ATTORNEYS
The malpractice attorneys at McMillen Law Firm handle birth injury and other medical malpractice cases. NICA claims are related to obstetrical malpractice and birth injury malpractice cases because the NICA plan has become a substitute for certain types of malpractice claims involving severe injuries to new-born babies occurring during labor or delivery.
While our firm started in Orlando and its main office is there, for many years we have handled medical malpractice and NICA claims throughout Florida and even out of state. To serve you better we have opened additional satellite offices in several major cities around Florida.
It costs you nothing to retain us to review your possible NICA claim. If we represent you in a NICA case our attorney fees and expenses are paid directly to us by NICA when your child is accepted into the program. This payment is on top of your award – it does not come out of your award. If your child is not accepted, you still owe us nothing for attorney’s fees or expenses. If you would prefer to try to avoid NICA and bring a medical malpractice law suit instead, we can help you with that too. We handle medical malpractice cases on a no-recovery, no-fee, no expense to you basis.
SCOTT R. McMILLEN
Our founder and senior trial lawyer, Scott R. McMillen, has been successfully handling major injury cases for 34 years. He started his legal career as a hospital attorney, but for the last 27 years he has been exclusively representing seriously injured people, and the families of the deceased. He received his Doctor of Law degree from Emory University in 1979 and his B.S. in 1976 from Florida State University, majoring in Government. He has been licensed to practice law in Florida since 1980, and in Georgia since 1979.
MARTINDALE-HUBBELL HIGHEST LAWYER RATING
Martindale-Hubbell is the oldest lawyer rating service and directory in the world, having first been published in the 1860’s. Martindale-Hubbell has rated Mr. McMillen “AV Preeminent – 5.0 out of 5.″ This is the highest rating given and according to Martindale, this certification is a testament to the fact that Mr. McMillen’s attorney peers consider him to have achieved the highest level of professional excellence, and also as having very high ethical standards.
HIGHEST RATING BY AVVO
In rating lawyers Avvo uses a model that considers a lawyer’s years in practice, absence of disciplinary history, professional achievements and industry recognition, which are all factors that are highly relevant to assessing a lawyer’s qualifications. Mr. McMillen has achieved an Avvo rating of “Superb – 10 out of 10.″ This also is the highest score given. In the Avvo system all lawyers are rated by the exact same standards using a mathematical model to insure that the rating system is completely unbiased. As with the Martindale-Hubbell ratings, there is no rating favoritism and lawyers cannot pay to be rated, or pay to improve their rating.
The McMillen Law Firm has been included in the Martindale-Hubbell Bar Registry of Preeminent Attorneys.
