MCMILLEN LAW FIRM
A PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATION
McMillen Law Firm practices primarily in the area of malpractice and personal injury and death cases. We accept FTCA cases involving medical malpractice at VA Hospitals, and also serious auto accidents, or general personal injury claims when the injuries are caused by federal employees. We do not handle cases that involve violation of civil rights. We only handle cases involving significant physical injuries- in other words accidents and medical malpractice cases caused by federal workers and federal agencies.
If we accept your case no deposit is required and we will advance all expenses. We do not charge an attorney’s fee or for any of the expenses if we do not obtain a recovery for you. Our attorney’s fee percentage for FTCA cases is 20% or 25% of the recovery depending on the circumstances.
In order to provide a high level of service we accept a select number of cases so that we can give each case a great deal of personal attention. To do this we must turn down far more cases than we accept, and if we turn your case down it does not necessarily mean you do not have a viable case. While our firm started in Orlando and its main office is there, for many years we have handled cases throughout Florida and Georgia. To serve you better we have opened additional offices in several major Florida cities, and also an office in Atlanta, Georgia. When advantageous to you, we will also associate with other law firms to serve you better. If we do associate with other FTCA lawyers on your case it will be at no additional attorney fee expense to you.

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.
