Dave Miller is a veteran trial lawyer with over 30 years litigating medical malpractice cases. He spent the first 18 years of his career defending physicians and other medical providers in courtrooms throughout Oregon, as well as other states. Beginning in 2000 Dave shifted his practice from defending medical professionals to representing injured patients.

There are few lawyers in Oregon with more courtroom experience litigating medical negligence cases than Dave. There are none with his depth of experience representing both physicians and patients.

Since becoming a full time plaintiff’s attorney Dave has been inducted into the prestigious American College of Trial Lawyers.

In addition to his trial work, Dave has been a frequent lecturer for medical groups such as The Oregon Medical Association (OMA), Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU), Oregon Anesthesia Group (OAG), American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG), Oregon Hospital Risk Management Association and other healthcare specialty groups. He has also testified before the Oregon Legislature and served on and consulted with legislative committees regarding medical negligence litigation, both from the perspective of physicians and patients.
