Jason S. Miller
Jason S. Miller is a founding Partner of Silver Miller and concentrates his practice on representing victims of financial fraud and digital currency users who seek to recover their financial losses. Jason — who has received a Martindale Hubbell Preeminent “AV” rating (generally recognized as the highest rating given in the legal industry for general ethical standards and legal ability) — is an accomplished writer and has spent more than two decades putting on paper the words that persuasively, powerfully, and entertainingly advocate his clients’ positions; and his legal prose has helped successfully resolve many cases at an early stage of litigation.
Over his 20+ year legal career, Jason has worked on commercial and financial fraud matters representing aggrieved clients ranging from individuals to large, multinational corporations in many different forums (state court, federal court, trial and appellate levels, arbitrations/mediations, etc.). Jason has also represented several high-profile sports figures, sporting goods manufacturers, and professional athletes in a variety of legal matters during his career. Using creativity, keen analytical skills, and a thorough attention to the details of each case and the needs of each client, Jason has successfully litigated hundreds of commercial disputes to his clients’ satisfaction.
Among the more notable victories Jason has helped garner for his clients are a landmark ruling in Florida concerning Florida’s Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act, large judgments against wayward cryptocurrency exchanges Bitcoin Savings and Trust and Cryptsy, and enforcement of a $1.4 million judgment against a debtor who sought to evade its debt through a fraudulent transfer. In addition, Jason has served as outside counsel to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), conducting multiple investigations into wrongdoing by officers and directors, attorneys, accountants/auditors, and real estate appraisers as they related to the downfall of certain closed financial institutions.
Upon graduating from law school, Jason worked for The Honorable Robbie M. Barr in Miami, FL. Following his employment with Judge Barr, Jason worked for a series of highly regarded law firms in Miami, focusing his practice at each firm on complex commercial litigation. Early in his career, Jason spent several years working with a team of attorneys representing the Successor Trustee of Southeast Banking Corporation — sister entity to Southeast Bank, N.A., the largest bank in the State of Florida at the time of its demise in 1991 — in liquidating the bank’s assets and administering the claims being prosecuted by the bank’s estate against the bank’s former directors and officers, accountants, and law firms. Ultimately, more than $470 Million was recovered and distributed to the bank’s creditors, which covered 100 percent of the creditors’ claims plus $63 Million in post-petition interest.
In 2011, Jason became a Partner at Silver Law Group, where he worked until he and David Silver founded Silver Miller continuing their mission to turn around financial fraud victims’ misfortune.
