Growing up on a sailboat in the Bahamas, I did not have access to many modern luxuries like air-conditioning, refrigeration, or television. So instead of watching half-hour sitcoms or action adventure shows about talking cars, I became a voracious reader.  When I wasn’t fishing, exploring deserted islands, or doing chores, I was reading.  It was through books that I discovered a fascination with laws and government. It was this interest that led me to study history in college and to attend law school.
Attorney Travis McMillen
While attending law school, I participated in a student exchange program that allowed me the opportunity to study law at Oxford University, England and then at Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic.  I was one of only a handful of students selected to participate in the Moot Court Team and competed in competitions against other students around the country.  My third year of law school, I was elected to the Order of the Barristers, a national honor society whose purpose is to encourage oral advocacy and brief-writing skills.

Following law school I began my legal career in South Florida as an insurance defense attorney.  For the next 16 years, I represented multinational insurance companies in complex litigation around the state.  During that time, I obtained extensive trial experience. I received the highest rating of “AV Preeminent” by Martindale-Hubbell’s Legal Ability Rating system.  An “AV Preeminent” rating demonstrates that a lawyer has reached the height of professional excellence (Very High to Preeminent).

After years of working for the insurance industry, I decided to use my knowledge and skills to assist people who have suffered injuries.  I have been blessed to have had the opportunity to learn how to practice from people I admire and respect.  Learning how to do things correctly makes the practice more enjoyable.

I am married and have two children.  I enjoy cooking, reading, working out, traveling, and spending time with my family.  If I had not gone to law school, I would have gone to culinary school and become a chef.
