Kris Miller stands ready to hold insurance companies responsible for the contracts they underwrite. He believes, unwaveringly, that the massive insurance companies, that take thousands of dollars out of every Colorado motorist’s pocket every year, need to do their job for the people they insure when the time comes. Too often these companies do not deliver the peace of mind they promise in exchange for our monthly premiums.

He completed jury trials and worked with public defenders and judges on developing new court procedures and policies. Over the course of his career, Mr. Miller has executed more than one hundred jury and bench trials.

After leaving his role as a public servant, Kris practiced as a solo attorney in areas, including criminal defense, family and personal injury law. He also worked in an advanced role for the largest personal injury firm in Colorado, as a supervising trial attorney. Opting to localize and focus his practice, Kris joined the phenomenal group at Maher & Maher in 2021.

Kris graduated from the University of Lynchburg in 2004 and the McGeorge School of Law in the Winter of 2008. Kris has been licensed to practice since the spring of 2009 and has many years of experience in various areas of law. He is admitted to practice law in all state and federal courts in Colorado. He handles matters involving negligence, bad faith insurance claims, and wrongful death. He is a devoted husband, devoted father to three, and an avid supporter of soccer and combat sports.
