Melissa Miller

Partner

I want to be part of a team that is dedicated to their clients, passionate about litigation and excels in their craft – that is why I am proud to be a part of the team at Howie, Sacks & Henry.

Melissa Miller is an advocate for the most vulnerable members of our population, the elderly. Being certified in Elder Law, she concentrates on nursing home negligence, long-term care cases and elder abuse. Her practice is also committed to all areas of personal injury litigation, including product liability, hospital negligence, car accidents, slip and falls and long-term disability claims. Melissa is also an experienced trial advocate and is prepared to take her cases all the way.

She is also a member of many professional associations, sat on the Board of Directors of the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association, and started her own organizations, Canadians4LTC and Lawyers4LTC, which advocate for broader systemic change to long-term care across Canada. Melissa is also the subject of a National Film Board of Canada Documentary, Stolen Time, about the systemic issues in long-term care.
