Having an insurance broker like Mills, who works hard every day to ensure that my business is properly insured against all types of risk is invaluable to me as a business owner. On the few occasions where there has been a loss that needed to be filed against my own insurance, the advice I was given by Mills was 100% correct and the claims were handled in a very timely manner. I simply call Mills EIS, and specifically Patricia Mills, my 'risk gurus'."

"I have been in the environmental consulting business for the past 32 years and have had my own environmental consulting business for the past twenty years. I have worked with Mills EIS for the past 3.5 years. Over the years, I have worked with several insurance agencies, and not had a thorough understanding of what I was buying and the differences from one policy to the next. Patricia Mills has the heart of a teacher and wants her clients to understand what they are buying and what each policy offers. She takes the time to explain the benefits of various products and allows her clients to make informed decisions. I really respect that she wants informed clients who are able to make educated decisions when it comes to liability insurance. Patricia is very knowledgeable about the various insurance products that are available, and she guides her clients on selecting the products that are most appropriate for their needs. Patricia and her staff are very accessible when it comes to answering questions or providing clients or prospective clients with information regarding our insurance coverage. Once the request is communicated to Mills EIS, it is taken care of effectively and efficiently. Since I have been working with Mills EIS, I no longer have to wonder whether the ratings of the companies that we are insured with meet the criteria of clients. They only deal with highly rated carriers that have a long track record as highly rated insurers. That gives us peace of mind and allows us to focus on our own business and meet the needs of our clients."
- Tom Harper, Owner, Environmental Technology Resources, Inc (ETRI)
"Spur Environmental Services, LLC has partnered with Mills EIS for all of our insurance needs since the inception of their business. We have a great working relationship with Patricia and her staff. On several occasions we have had ‘special circumstances’ arise which required additional insurance; they have gone ‘above and beyond’ to find the product that best fits our needs and over the years we have found that they have actually reduced many premiums as well. Patricia worked tirelessly to find the right Workers Compensation Insurance that met our business requirements while reducing our premiums. We value our relationship with Mills, both as our Insurance Professional and as partners serving the environmental needs of our clients. We highly recommend them for all of your insurance needs."
- Roger I. Dyer, GM/Owner, SES
“After I started my company, it soon became evident that I didn’t know the ins and outs of the insurance world as well as I thought. Patricia has walked me through many of the variables and has provided me with sound advice when needed. She and her staff are always available to answer my questions and present themselves as the professionals they are while treating me as a valued client.”
- Jack A. Wintle, P.G., Owner, Clearwater Environmental Resources, LLC
"My name is Clint Thompson, and I own several different businesses. I started my first business 16 years ago and was extremely intimidated by the insurance requirements being imposed upon me by large corporations, balanced with managing the day-to-day risk management needs of the business through my start-up period. I’m not sure how I found Patricia that first year, but I am sure that God had something to do with it. Since I met her, she has handled the insurance needs of multiple businesses and simply is just awesome to work with. A couple of the businesses have involved high risk environmental remediation or complicated waste management/processing operations, and Patricia and her firm simply understand the complexity and are great at sourcing insurance to meet our needs. In addition, no matter what the issue is, Patricia and members of her firm treat me like I’m their best customer, and I absolutely feel like MEIS is the risk management arm of my organizations. The firm’s dollar per value is the best I have seen in the Environmental and Renewable insurance market. If you are considering meeting an insurance need, please call me to discuss, and I will assure you that Patricia and MEIS will exceed your expectations!"
