How Can We Help?

DIANNA MILLER

“As an attorney, it is my duty and distinct honor to serve as a zealous advocate for those who cannot effectively speak for themselves. I will continue to work hard every day to seek justice for my clients and serve my community.”
The primary theme throughout Mrs. Miller’s legal career has been her commitment to serving those in need. She has constantly worked to help indigent and economically disadvantaged populations. Previously focusing her work primarily in the areas of public policy research and criminal law, Mrs. Miller has worked tirelessly to sharpen her legal advocacy skills both inside and outside of the courtroom.
