The Law Office of Keith R. Miles, LLC was founded in 2008 and has a focus on holistic estate and elder law planning for individuals and both traditional and “blended” families.
Estate Planning should be about much more than words on a document.

We recognize the uniqueness of this endeavor and as such design customized estate planning solutions for each client.
The firm is particularly focused on Elder Law issues such as Long-Term Care Planning, Medicaid Planning and Special Needs Planning. In addition, there is a focus on “crisis planning” for those with a Terminal Illness or those who need to prepare in the short-term to qualify for benefits to due health or aging related issues.
The Law Office of Keith R. Miles, LLC operates throughout Georgia and North Carolina.
Keith R. Miles, Esq.
Mr. Miles is originally from New York (Long Island). He arrived in Georgia in 2004 to attend the Full-Time MBA program at The University of Georgia. After graduating and started working in Atlanta, he was married in 2006. Mr. Miles opened an office in Gwinnett County and handled IRS tax controversies for clients.
At the end of 2008, his wife was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Over the next six months, he had to learn about estate planning to plan her estate with various types of trusts from revocable trusts to special needs. She passed away in June 2009. After that, Mr. Miles shifted his law practice focus from tax law to estate planning.
Over time Mr. Miles expanded his estate planning practice beyond wills, revocable living trusts, advance directives for healthcare and powers of attorney. The cases that his clients were bringing to the practice exposed more of the need to plan for long-term care expenses and the special rules to qualify for government benefits such as Medicaid.
Mr. Miles is a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA), an WealthCounsel, ElderCounsel and a member of The Estate Planning Council of North Georgia.
He is an active member of the Georgia and North Carolina Bars.
