Melissa Paris Miller, Esq.
Melissa Paris Miller is an associate at Friedman Schuman, where she concentrates her practice on medical malpractice and personal injury matters.
Her family’s own history with the medical system makes it easy for her to relate to clients and families dealing with sensitive medical and legal issues. When Melissa was 14 years old, she founded a non-profit corporation to raise awareness and support medical research for childhood epilepsy, after her sister contracted a virus that took away her ability to speak.
Her early start as an advocate for people who cannot speak for themselves has continued to inspire her. Melissa focuses on fighting for people who have been seriously injured as a result of medical mistake, surgical error, or some other wrong in the health care system. She has successfully obtained several six and seven figure verdicts and settlements.
Melissa attended University of Maryland before receiving her law degree from the Delaware Law School of Widener University. While in law school, she distinguished herself as an executive board member of Widener’s trial advocacy honor society and won several awards for her trial, legal writing, and pro-bono work.
