Todd M. Miller


As a former officer in the United States Marine Corps, I learned that to be successful one must create and sustain good relationships. I believe that the same rule applies directly to an attorney when managing a client’s matter, whether it be forming a small business entity, closing a multi-million dollar real estate development deal, or resolving a matter through litigation. Building these kinds of relationships require an attorney that can do two things: first, communicate with the client and gain a deep understanding of their interests; and second, successfully communicate, advocate for, and defend those interests throughout the life of the client’s transaction. One of the foundations of my practice is the communication skills I developed while serving the country, skills which help me provide effective and valuable results when representing my clients. As luck would have it, I have found at Holmquist & Gardiner professionals who share this value and strive to provide exceptional legal advice in the most efficient and valuable manner available.

I was raised in Centralia, WA and attended Washington State University where I earned a degree in economics. After graduating, I served as an infantry officer in the United States Marine Corps, deploying in support of Operation Enduring Freedom with Golf Company, 2d Battalion, 3d Marine Regiment. I enjoy reading for pleasure, though I rarely do it enough, WSU football, and spending time with family and friends.

I look forward to developing my practice as an associate with Holmquist & Gardiner, and I am confident we will deliver valuable results to our clients.
