Miller specializes in banking litigation and has successfully represented OneWest Bank and the FDIC in numerous cases involving federal preemption, TILA/RESPA, various state-law claims, loan modifications, and reverse mortgages, the firm said. The attorney also handles complex commercial litigation and of commercial landlord-tenant disputes.

He earned his undergraduate degree from Tufts University in 1991 and his law degree from Duke University in 1995. He was admitted to practice in 2001.
