DuBose Miller is a boutique trial law firm with a specialized practice that focuses on complex cases in personal injury, business and criminal law.
Founding partners Von A. DuBose and Tanya F. Miller share both an academic background and a common passion – trying tough cases in the courtroom. Though they followed divergent paths in their early careers, each arrived at the same compelling conclusion: they also shared a moral obligation to use their vast trial experience and superior courtroom skills to stand up for what’s right.
In 2016 in Atlanta, Georgia, they partnered to put the call of duty into practice as DuBose Miller, Trial Lawyers.
Both DuBose and Miller are graduates of Case Western Reserve University School of Law, a highly selective law program located in Cleveland, Ohio, founded in 1892 and one of the first schools to be accredited by the American Bar Association, in 1921. Both were chosen to clerk for the Honorable Solomon Oliver, Jr., Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio. Federal clerkships are quite prestigious, reserved for the top academic performers in law school, and designed to provide young attorneys a unique opportunity to see and understand how judges adjudicate cases. DuBose and Miller each were privileged to serve Judge Oliver, who was, himself, the last federal law clerk for Judge William H. Hastie, the first African-American appointed to a federal. Appointed by President Truman in 1949 and confirmed by the Senate in 1950, Judge Hastie served in the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.
It is a great honor to follow in such distinguished footsteps.
DuBose pursued a career in the private sector, joining Bondurant, Mixson & Elmore, where he rose to partner, gained extensive experience as lead trial counsel in numerous civil trials and arbitrations, and earned a reputation as a highly successful litigator and negotiator. His trial victories were among the firm’s highest profile, and he remains undefeated in arbitration proceedings.
Miller also began in private practice, as an associate at the international law firm Jones Day in its Cleveland office, but soon felt drawn to the pursuit of public priorities. Her work as both a prosecutor and as a defense attorney gives her deep insight into investigative procedures and trial strategies.
She has served as Assistant United States Attorney in the United States Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of New York, widely considered among the nation’s premier legal institutions. As Chief Senior District Attorney in the Major Crimes Division of the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office, Miller earned a 99 percent conviction rate at trial and was undefeated in her prosecution of murder cases. In private practice since 2013, Miller specializes in complex criminal defense, personal injury and civil rights litigation, and she has prevailed in cases throughout the metro area as well as before the Georgia Supreme Court. A skilled and outspoken communicator, she appears regularly on CNN and other media outlets as a trusted legal analyst and commentator.
DuBose Miller has quickly established itself as firm to watch, with high-profile successes in complex cases.
