Nathan was raised in Southlake, Texas and is a graduate of Carroll High School, Baylor University, and Texas Wesleyan University School of Law. During law school Nathan served internships with both the United States Attorney's Office and the Tarrant County District Attorney's Office.

Nathan also competed on several national level moot court appellate advocacy teams. His proudest achievement was winning the prestigious J. Gibbons Criminal Procedure Moot Court National Championship with his two teammates, Jim Graham and Jennifer Daigle. In the final round against Georgetown University School of Law, Nathan was named the "Best Oral Advocate" of the competition.

Legal Experience

After law school Nathan joined the Denton County District Attorney's Office as a prosecutor. In only two years he had successfully taken over 50 misdemeanor and felony cases to jury trial. In addition to this courtroom work, Nathan Miller was charged with the task of evaluating the hundreds of other criminal cases for plea agreements. This development of in-court and out-of-court skills became invaluable to his move to criminal defense.

In 2010 Nathan Miller began a private criminal defense practice based in Denton, Texas. Since then his firm has expanded to two offices, Denton and Southlake, so he can better serve clients in the four-county metroplex. When he is not in the courtroom, Nathan enjoys serving as a husband and father, hunting waterfowl, running, and cycling. He is a proud supporter of the Carroll Dragons, Baylor Bears, and Texas Rangers, and is a season ticket holder for all three.
