A talented trial lawyer, he has achieved many notable successes in difficult cases over his years in practice.
Mr. Milks was born in North Little Rock, Arkansas, and spent some of his childhood in Louisiana before finally settling in Texas, where he attended high school and college. After earning his B.A. from Southern Methodist University, he went on to obtain his law degree from the Texas Wesleyan School of Law.

Mr. Milks takes pride in being able to help good people through hard times. The law, and specifically the courtroom, appeal to him as the place where challenging problems can finally come to a fair resolution. He sees the courtroom as part arena and part stage, where he can advocate for others, fulfilling his innate desire to see honor and justice prevail. He often takes on personal injury cases that other attorneys won’t touch, as they are seen as especially difficult. He has faced long-odds against multibillion-dollar corporations, big industry, and the government—and he has frequently come out on top, winning cases for his clients in the toughest circumstances.
Mr. Milks is admitted to practice in the state of Texas, as well as before the Northern, Southern, and Western Federal Districts of Texas. He is a member of the Tarrant County Bar and Dallas County Bar Associations.
