Lauren Vann

Paralegal

I was born and raised in Cumberland County and still reside here to this day. I have been with Miller and Illikainen for going on 7 years. I started as the Receptionist and moved my way up to become Mr. Illikainen's paralegal. I handle all of Mr. Illikainen's criminal, domestic and some of his military cases. I adore my job and the caseload that comes with it.  

Contrary to popular belief,
going to court isn’t your only option.

CERTIFIED IN COLLABORATIVE LAW

Collaborative law is similar to mediation, except all of the parties are working together toward a resolution outside of court. Having an experienced collaborative law attorney is vital if you are seeking out-of-court options for your case.

MEDIATION MAY BE IDEAL

Because mediation requires fewer legal fees, it may be ideal if you are going through a divorce or have other financial constraints. Mediation is also a good way to avoid the stress of litigation.

WE LITIGATE IF NECESSARY

When a solution cannot be reached outside the courtroom, we are ready to represent you through litigation. The need to litigate arises from many factors such as hostile disputes and emotional situations.

We’re proud to serve the men and women
who serve our country.


WHAT TYPES OF MILITARY LAW CASES
DO YOU HANDLE?

We handle all types of courts-martial cases, Article 15 issues, general officer memorandum of reprimand, commander’s inquiries, AR 15-6 investigations, and administrative separation boards.

Attorney Gregg Illikainen understands first
hand how intricate military law is.

As a former serviceman, Gregg is dedicated to providing military clients with the best legal representation. He will thoroughly explore all facets and potential defenses for your case, always answer your questions honestly and realistically and make sure you go into court well-prepared.

the legal process.

At Miller & Illikainen, a large portion of our clientele is in some way connected to the military at Fort Bragg. Because of this, we have extensive military law and family law services, and our experience lends to the expert representation we offer.

When hiring a family or military attorney, it’s important to choose representation with applicable experience. We have handled many military law, military family law, and general family law cases similar to yours. We know how to prepare for court and how to find resolutions outside of court through either mediation or collaborative law.

As a full-service law firm, we also practice criminal defense law. We believe everyone should have the best legal counsel, and our goal is always to deliver favorable outcomes to our clients. Whether military or civil, we will fight for your individual rights. 

Our practice doesn’t end with representation. We like to educate our clients on legal processes and what they can expect, especially in family court cases. We know the importance of understanding the law — we have spent our careers studying and practicing it — and we want our clients to be equipped to handle situations with awareness and understanding.

If you are in need of a military attorney, family law attorney, or criminal defense attorney, reach out to us today. Time is of the essence in matters of the law, and we want you to get the best legal counsel and representation possible.
