At age 19, Georgette Miller immigrated to the United States from Jamaica with $200 borrowed from a friend and the clothes on her back. Through perseverance, sacrifice, faith, and hard work, she put herself through John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City and Rutgers School of Law.
Ms. Miller immigrated to the United States with the goal of becoming an attorney and the desire to help anyone in need. As a result, Ms. Miller attained her Juris Doctorate degree from Rutgers School of Law – Camden and has a Master of Laws (LLM) degree in Taxation from Temple University School of Law.
Ms. Miller has practiced in some of the largest regional and international firms in the country and has also been in-house counsel with a significant real estate investment trust (REIT). She then launched her own successful law firm practice and in 2020 became a partner with Margolis Edelstein.
When Ms.Miller isn’t practicing rules of law, she can be found either on the tennis court (playing very poorly) or in her native homeland of Jamaica, surrounded by her family.
