Howie, Sacks & Henry LLP – Personal Injury Law – Paul Miller


A dedicated advocate for people who have suffered personal injuries, Paul has 20 years of experience involving cases of defective products and medical devices, motor vehicle accidents, slip and falls as well as fighting for those denied long-term disability benefits. As co-lead counsel for the victims of the 2005 Air France crash at Toronto’s Pearson airport, and as representative for 23 Canadians involved in litigation surrounding the events of September 11, 2001, Paul has proven experience with high profile cases. But his passion for helping those wronged by the negligence of others finds him taking on all kinds of cases where he believes he can make a difference. Formerly a board member of the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association (2004-2006) and currently a board director with the US-based organization Public Justice, Paul joined HSH as a partner to further pursue his interest in mass tort litigation involving product or drug liability. Paul is an avid golfer. When not tirelessly working on cases or spending quality time with his wife and four children, you’ll likely see him out on the green.

I became a personal injury lawyer because I wanted to ensure that people, when devastated by injuries had access to not only benefits and compensation, but access to the courts in order to seek out justice for injuries they have suffered.
