________________________________________________________________________

Few professionals have Wil Miller's depth and breadth of experience with methamphetamine addiction and recovery. His own inspirational tale of recovery and reinvention was the cover story for Northwest Lawyer Magazine's June 2014 edition [CLICK HERE TO VIEW]and the North Carolina State Bar Journal 2014 Fall Edition.[CLICK HERE TO VIEW].

Wil is now an expert and popular public speaker on issues related to meth and meth addiction.  His presentations combine information about the physical and psychological effects of meth along with an open and honest telling of his own personal story of addiction, arrest, disbarment, conviction, imprisonment, recovery and ultimate reinstatement as an attorney in Washington State.

During his years as a criminal defense attorney Wil also represented a large number of meth-addicts in the Seattle area accused of identity theft and bank fraud - crimes with a strong correlation to meth addiction.  Wil discusses the link between the drug and the criminal behavior and helps people understand what they can do in their everyday lives to better protect themselves from being victims. 

Over the past seven years Will has been an active member and volunteer with the North Carolina State Bar's Lawyers Assistance Program ("LAP") serving as a mentor, monitor and recovery coach for other attorneys struggling with addiction.  He is now a volunteer with the Washington State Bar Association's Lawyers Assistance Program in Seattle where he assists in providing continuing legal education for attorneys on issues related to addiction, recovery and mental health.

Wil is now available for public speaking engagements on a limited basis. Topics covered in a particular presentation can be tailored to the specific needs of the hiring organization.

If you need a lively, knowledgeable and entertaining presenter to speak about addiction, recovery and mental health in the legal community, or the many complex issues related to methamphetamine addiction and meth-related crime, call Wil for more information.

Reviews from attendees at Wil Miller's
Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Presentation: 
"LIFE AFTER METH: 
Addiction, Recovery and Mental Health in the Legal Community"

.

"This presentation was absolutely riveting!!! The good news is that I'm sure Wil has helped countless numbers of people by openly sharing his story. The bad news is that every CLE I take in the future is going to seem completely dull in comparison to Wil's presentation."


"What an amazing story - very inspirational. Wil obviously has a talent for public speaking, but to be able to relay such a personal story with such an important message is truly remarkable."



"This speaker must be a terrific trial lawyer. When he finished his presentation I was standing in my office clapping in front of the computer, until I realized that there was no way he could know how enthusiastically I appreciated the information he shared." 



"This was probably one of the best presentations I have ever heard, and I am so grateful that Mr. Miller was willing to share his redemptive story."



"Fantastic presentation. Great story teller. Simply captivating. Thank you for pouring yourself out for us in such an open way."



"Pitch-perfect."



"The most interesting and engaging CLE presentation I have seen in the last 5 years."


"Fantastic speaker. Content is relevant for every attorney, whether a substance abuser or not. We can all benefit from increased empathy and understanding for our colleagues and clients struggling with addiction. This should be offered annually."



"Miller was extraordinary. He is an extraordinary speaker and is to be commended for his great courage. Thanks to the WSBA for sponsoring his presentation."



"A truly amazing story of a comeback against terrible odds."


"Extremely lucid presentation with 100% credibility." 


"Douglas Wilson "Wil" Miller is an incredibly engaging speaker! His story is worth sharing with so many people -- addicts, attorneys, and really anybody!"



"He was a fantastic speaker and very engaging. I was impressed at his forthright honesty and willingness to share his story in a way that calls attention to real problems facing lawyers. His talk was so well done that a non-lawyer colleague passing through my office stopped and watched the entire presentation with me."



"One of the best CLE presentations I have ever heard. I hope all lawyers, judges and law students get to hear Mr. Miller's presentation at some point. I really appreciate him sharing his story with us."



"This was one of the best prepared and executed, and most helpful presentations I have ever seen. The candidness, depth, and hopefulness of the presentation reflected the reality of the legal profession in a way that I think should be replicated more frequently. We need to understand, as a profession, that intelligent and respectable colleagues struggle with these issues - it is not just a problem that our clients have. I think taking about the issue as real and present is the first step to combating it."
