Testimonials

Hearing Rick Miller speak and reading his book, which I keep on my bench, was very eye opening and altered, for the better, how I view the world. I use his Kids at Hope philosophy in court when dealing with kids and parents. I also use his philosophy and keep it in mind when dealing with my own kids and with other adults in my personal life. I also believe that this philosophy will help me when I move to the criminal bench.
