About me

Effective representation of criminal investigation or prosecution requires not only knowledge of criminal statutes and rules, but long experience with the offices and agencies that enforce them. As a seasoned trial lawyer, and former prosecutor, I offer an insider's view of how best to defend a case. I am dedicated to defending the rights of the accused and will work tirelessly to ensure the best possible outcome of your case.

Greg Miller, formerly United States Attorney, served for six years as the lead prosecutor and chief federal law enforcement officer in North Florida. Greg was also responsible for defending and prosecuting all lawsuits in which the United States was concerned. Over his legal career, Greg has been responsible for prosecuting and defending individuals who violated federal, state and military laws, coordinating complex investigations, and prosecuting and defending civil lawsuits.


 


Mr. Miller began his law career in 1980, while serving as a Judge Advocate in the United States Marine Corps. He has also served as an Assistant State Attorney in Florida , as an Organized Crime Prosecutor with the U.S. Department of Justice, and as an attorney in private practice. He has tried a significant number of military, state and federal jury trials, litigated hundreds of evidentiary hearings and briefed and successfully argued cases before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. He has more than 17 years of experience in managing complex criminal and civil cases in the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Florida. He has received numerous awards and commendations, including the Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys Director's Award for Public Service.
