He was a named equity partner in the civil rights firm of Litt, Estuar, Harrison, Miller & Kitson, LLP, where he practiced high-impact, class-action litigation. He worked as counsel, co-counsel, trial counsel, and co-trial counsel.

While at Wotman, Kors & Cloutier, LLP, Mr. Miller practiced plaintiff's sexual-orientation discrimination law and civil rights law, both on an individual and class-action basis.  Additionally, Mr. Miller mediated civil rights cases under ยง 1983 (the Federal Civil Rights Act of 1871) with outstanding results.   

Serving as Of Counsel at Norton & Melnik, APC, he litigated insurance defense cases in personal injury fraud, products liability/construction, and intentional torts while practicing all forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR). He settled multiple insurance defense cases for nuisance value, protecting his clients from exposure to significant damages as well as potentially large fees and costs, and he prosecuted highly complex cases under the Davis-Stirling Act, protecting the rights of plaintiff homeowners against abusive HOAs.

Mr. Miller's interests in protecting the legal rights and privileges of others stems in part from living the first 18 years of his life in South Africa under the Apartheid regime.  After moving to the United States, this compelled him to work in the areas of health care, civil rights, personal injury, and public international law.  His education and experience reflect his values and committment to equality under the law:
