PROFILE

Milan is the managing attorney in The Woodlands, Texas office of MILAN G. MARINKOVICH & ASSOCIATES, PLLC.  He received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Pittsburgh and his Juris Doctor at Widener University School of Law in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.


He represents individuals, corporations, and insurance carriers in all state courts throughout Texas and Georgia and has represented trucking clients in Tennessee, Pro Hac Vice, pursuant to Rule 19 of the Tennessee Supreme Court.

He has more than seven years of prior insurance experience managing both coverage issues and personal injury liability claims for an insurer in Georgia and Texas. In addition to his work as lead defense counsel, he provides insurers with coverage opinions, reservation of rights letters, and conducts examinations under oath ("EUOs") on suspected fraudulent claim submissions.   His civil litigation trial practice focuses on both insurance coverage and defense (personal automobile and trucking), general liability, and premises liability. He also represents clients involved in business disputes, and handles both criminal and family law cases.

  • On December 3, 2019, Milan obtained a $111,845.00 jury verdict in Harris County, Texas for a car accident victim.


  • On February 20, 2019, Milan obtained a $300,000.00 jury verdict in Harris County, Texas for a 7-year old victim of illicit sexual contact.

Milan  prosecuted numerous misdemeanor and felony cases before juries with the Nueces County District Attorney’s office. His current criminal defense practice is devoted to representing clients charged with serious felony offenses, including first degree murder.
