Wong Fleming welcomes Jonathan R. Miller to the firm as an associate attorney. Mr. Miller’s practice focuses on employment, commercial, and environmental litigation in state and federal courts. Prior to joining our firm, Mr. Miller served as a litigation associate at Drinker, Biddle & Reath, LLP, where he worked on diverse matters ranging from personal injury actions and employment law through high-stakes environmental litigation and co-authored winning appellate briefs in two recently decided cases: In re Permit No. 1512-03-0093.1 Issued to Toll Bros., Inc., 2007 WL 1365399 (N.J. App. Div. May 10, 2007); and State v. Horne, 2007 WL 28377 (N.J. App. Div. Jan. 5, 2007).
Mr. Miller received his J.D. from Cornell Law School in 2005. While in law school, he augmented his studies by working part-time at the Office of the University Counsel of Cornell University, serving as a teaching assistant for Professor Peter Martin and as a research assistant for Professor Theodore Eisenberg, prosecuting traffic and other violations in city court as a participant in a prosecution clinic, and serving as a judicial extern under the Hon. Peter Buckley (Chemung County, N.Y.). Mr. Miller was awarded several merit-based scholarships and received the CALI Excellence for the Future Award as a judicial extern.
Prior to law school, Mr. Miller received a B.A. as a mathematics major at SUNY-Binghamton in 1981, and an M.S. from the Columbia University School of Social Work in 1988. Before choosing law as a second career, Mr. Miller worked as a social worker and counselor in a variety of settings. For several years, Mr. Miller supervised child protective services in the highly diverse and socio-economically challenged city of Ramla, Israel, an intense experience that afforded him numerous opportunities to argue child custody petitions in court.
