A new law firm has opened in Georgetown on the Courthouse Square. Triplett & Miller-Novak started business last week at 109 East Grant Avenue. Their hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday or by appointment.
Triplett & Miller-Novak offers services for: child custody and support, adoption, divorce, dissolution, legal separation, spousal support, wills and trusts, small business organization, labor and employment representation, landlord/tenant disputes, criminal record expungements, and general civil litigation. Triplett & Miller-Novak soon plans to expand its services to cover criminal and bankruptcy representation, as well as foreclosure representation.
“Nobody should believe that they cannot obtain legal representation. Our goal is to look at our clients’ income and determine how our firm can adjust our fees to accommodate their budgets as much as possible,” said attorney Rachel Triplett. “We are not looking to be rich. Instead, we want to measure our success through helping people with their legal difficulties.”
Triplett is a graduate of Georgetown Jr./Sr. High School. She attended Transylvania University in Lexington, Ky., where she earned a Bachelor’s of Art degree in Sociology. After taking a year off to farm on her small organic farm in Georgetown, she decided to attend Salmon P. Chase College of Law, focusing on estate planning, non-profit organizations, and family law.
Triplett was granted an internship with The Legal Aid Society of Southwest Ohio, where she learned the importance of offering volunteer legal services to a local community. In her free time, she enjoys raising chickens and tending her small vegetable garden. She is looking forward to being able to give back to her hometown community and her home county.
Matt Miller-Novak is originally from Youngstown. He moved to Cincinnati with his wife, Jamie, to receive his Masters of Fine Art for Drawing in 2001. After their son, Liam, was born, he attended Salmon P. Chase School of Law, where he focused on his litigation skills. During the end of his law school career and before opening Triplett & Miller-Novak, he worked in Freking and Betz’s business and employment litigation departments in downtown Cincinnati. He lives north of Cincinnati with his family, and he still exhibits his drawings in Cincinnati. In his free time, he enjoys participating as a guitarist in his church’s rock band. He is looking forward to becoming part of Brown County’s community.
“Triplett & Miller-Novak volunteer for Legal Aid and Prokids by providing pro bono legal representation, because our firm is dedicated to providing all with competent legal representation,” said Miller-Novak. “We believe that a higher calling brought us together to serve this area’s needs. Please, do not hesitate to call or stop in and visit us at the office for a cup of coffee.”
