Super Lawyers’ research staff selected the Texas Rising Stars based on lawyer nominations, general public nominations, and 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. No more than 2.5 percent of Texas lawyers are named to the Rising Stars edition.

Miller’s practice focuses on civil appellate law. He is board-certified in that area by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. His practice also includes the defense of civil lawsuits.

Miller is a member of the American Bar Association’s legislative and policy-setting body, the House of Delegates. He serves as a member of the House of Delegates’ Committee on Issues of Concern to the Profession.
