We are pleased to announce that our senior associate, George C. Miller, Esq., has been named a finalist for the San Diego Daily Transcript's "Young Attorneys" list.

A New York native, George moved to Texas in grade school and went on to attend The University of Texas at Austin where he graduated with honors in 2004. He then graduated summa cum laude from Thomas Jefferson School of Law in 2008.
