Courtney Miller attended Texas A&M University for her undergraduate Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology before beginning her studies at St. Mary’s University School of Law, where she graduated at the top of her class receiving her Juris Doctorate. While attending St. Mary’s School of Law, Ms. Miller participated in both external and internal advocacy programs, excelling in both, finishing in the quarter finals or higher in nearly all competitions. She was also a Staff Writer for Issue 16 of The Scholar: St. Mary’s Law Review on Race and Social Issues, eventually getting published in a Medical Encyclopedia on the various legal ramifications, State by State, for transmitting certain medical diseases.
During her time at law school, Ms. Miller worked at the highest criminal court in Texas, the Court of Criminal Appeals, in both the Central Staffing Attorney’s Office and directly for Presiding Judge Sharon Keller.

Additionally, Ms. Miller worked in the Criminal Prosecution Division at the Office of the Attorney General of Texas and at the Travis County Attorney’s Office. While at the Attorney General’s Office, Ms. Miller was responsible for researching pertinent legal issues relating to aggravated sexual assault cases, death penalty cases and the removal of a District Judge, as well as researching and drafting appeals. At the County Attorney’s Office Ms. Miller gained extensive knowledge in DWI cases and was also able to exercise her abilities as an oral advocate in hearings and trials.
Ms. Miller has since focused all her efforts on defense work and has put her years of experience and knowledge while working with various prosecuting offices to helping her clients in scrupulously defending their cases. Ms. Miller was able to hone her skills and can now apply all of those efforts to providing her clients with representation rising beyond all expectations.
