Details

The principal attorney at and founder of The McMillan Law Firm, APC., Scott A. McMillan, has been practicing law in the Golden State of California for more than two decades now. Representing businesses and entrepreneurs across the state, he primarily focuses his practice on two niches of law: real estate and business and insurance defense as well. He has handled anything from contract disputes and leases on property to false advertising violations and police misconduct matters.

A young entrepreneur himself, Mr. McMillan understands the difficulties an individual faces when caught up in a legal battle. Through his firm, he specifically aims to be a legal guide to small businesses and provide them with top-notch yet cost-effective legal representation. Truly dedicated to protecting his clients’ interests and rights, he has become a name all businesses and companies can rely on.

Born and raised in California, Mr. McMillan pursued his undergraduate studies at the renowned University of California, San Diego and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1988. After a couple of years of successfully operating a computer distribution business, he decided to enroll in law school to further his education. He earned his Juris Doctor degree from the Western Sierra Law School in 1999, and two years later, he was admitted to The State Bar of California.

Peer-review rated AV Preeminent* through Martindale-Hubbell, Mr. McMillan has received various other awards and accolades, including a “Superb” rating on Avvo.
