Practice areas

Aggressive yet diplomatic, Tanya has mastered the nuance that builds confidence and projects authority. Her investigative skills and commanding courtroom presence – honed during her years as a tenacious lead and supervising criminal prosecutor and in her private practice as a fierce attorney representing clients in the private sector– give her the ability to make a compelling case for the benefit of her clients, regardless of their wealth or social standing.

Miller has a soft spot for the children, victims and underdogs, and she is relentless in her determination to set things right:

As a prosecutor, Miller played a key role in the criminal investigation and prosecution of widespread and systemic cheating and test-tampering in the Atlanta Public School System and related RICO charges. This organizational corruption harmed thousands of Georgia schoolchildren while enriching some of the system’s most powerful administrators. In addition to more than eighty confessions, 11 of 12 educators accused were further convicted at trial on racketeering charges.
She successfully prosecuted the deadly Easter Sunday hit-and-run case in which a young woman caused a chain-reaction crash on Camp Creek Parkway that killed five people, including a newborn and two young children, left the scene of the accident, and, with the help of her mother, tampered with evidence in an attempt to avoid arrest. Both mother and daughter were convicted and sentenced to prison.

On behalf of the family of a crime victim murdered in cold blood on the grounds of an apartment complex long known for criminal gang activity, Miller brought suit against the property owner for negligent security and failure to protect its tenants, including minor children and minority residents. Her advocacy resulted in a significant out-of-court settlement that recognized the value of the victim’s life.


In a similar case, Miller represented a crime victim who was gravely wounded during a botched robbery attempt at a motel where he was a guest. Arguing that the motel owners were aware the property was unsafe but did nothing to warn unsuspecting guests about known criminal activity, Miller fought for and obtained a confidential settlement for her injured client.

Tanya Miller To The Rescue
In August 218, I found myself in a helpless legal situation and I had nowhere to turn. I was referred to Ms. Tanya Miller and she came through with flying colors! She was extremely knowledgeable about the laws and court system and very responsive to my questions. We were able to get all charges dismissed. I can't thank the Law Office of Tanya F. Miller enough for their professionalism and a job well done!

Outstanding Service with Excellent Results
Outstanding Service with Excellent Results “I am very happy with the service I received from attorney Tanya Miller. This was my first time dealing with the legal system and I did not know what to do or where to turn. My fears were put to rest when I found Ms. Miller. She explained everything that was going to happen and was always responsive to my questions and concerns. She took the time to explain my options so I could weigh the pros and cons of each and come to a conclusion together. I would highly recommend Ms. Miller. She was a true professional at all times and knows her way around the court system. She went above and beyond what I expected and was fair with her billing as well. ”

Hire Super Attorney without Breaking your Bank
When looking for an attorney to represent my son on some very serious felony charges, I reached out to an Atlanta Super Attorney who has represented many high profile clients, some were professional athletes. He was very nice, and listened as I briefed him on our situation, but he soon got to the hefty price tag that he would have to charge me to handle my son’s two cases. It was in the tens of thousands of dollars. He saw the desperate look on my face and then asked me if had had considered any other attorneys. I responded that I had discussed the case with a few attorneys, and named them along with attorney Tanya F. Miller. He highly recommended attorney Miller as he had heard her argue a case in court, and was impressed. He said that if I could afford her to hire her to do so immediately. She agreed to handle my some’s cases for a fraction of the cost that he proposed. I decided to attorney Miller on his recommendation, and based on her prior experience in the DA’s office, knowledge from the prosecution side of things, and overall a gut feeling that he would be the best choice. In the midst of my panic, she conveyed a level of calmness, and assurance that she would fight for the best outcome for my son. My family and I are very pleased with how she handled the case. My son was facing a very lengthy prison sentence if he had been found guilty of the original charges that he was facing. Attorney Miller fought hard for my son. She was able to get leniency from the DA’s office, as a result the charges were reduced and he is only has to serve a short sentence. Needing a criminal defense attorney can be very stressful. I highly recommend hiring attorney Miller, you can count her. She is a patient, intelligent, and very dedicated attorney.
