Dan Miller grew up in the Chesapeake area of Virginia. He attended Norfolk Collegiate School, graduating in 1985. In 1987, he earned his Associate's degree from Oxford College, where he majored in sociology and philosophy. Not too long after, Miller earned his Bachelor's degree in sociology and philosophy from Emory University.
From 1989 through 1995, Miller was the drummer in an Atlanta-based band, which went on tour throughout the southeast. After attending Western Michigan Law School for two years, he went to Thomas Cooley Law School, where he had an early graduation and earned admission to the Virginia Bar in November of 1998. Shortly after, Miller began his career at Michael I. Ashe, P.C., where he focused on criminal law and traffic violations.
In 2001, Miller began his own firm and now practice law in all Virginia courts, both federal and state. Due to his ceaseless efforts and passion to represent clients, he has been selected for inclusion into several professional legal organizations, including the Top 100 Trial Lawyers for Criminal Defense Lawyers in 2015. Miller also expanded his repertoire of practice to include family law cases stemming from Virginia domestic relations laws, such as divorce, child custody and support, domestic violence, and paternity cases.
