also known as Karla Hewitt Miller, Karla Cauthen Miller

About me

I grew up in Dothan, Alabama and graduated from Auburn University in 1985.  I have lived in Nashville since 1986 and I love it!  I love to travel, even if it is just to the beach for a long weekend.  I like being outdoors and love to take long walks with my labradoodle, Stella, for exercise.  I am married to attorney Phillip Miller and we share office space in a beautiful Victorian house on Woodland Street in Nashville...very convenient to the Courthouse, and free parking!  My favorite thing about practicing family law is that I get to help people work through very difficult situations, and I am result-oriented...If you are in the process of a divorce or are considering a divorce, I urge you to focus on the solution instead of the problem...and hire a lawyer who will do the same!
