Mandy Miller

Katy Criminal Defense Attorney

Mandy Miller was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. She attended law school at Louisiana State University, where she excelled in both trial and appellate advocacy. Mandy passed the Louisiana Bar exam and practiced defense litigation until moving to Houston, Texas in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina.

After passing the Texas Bar exam in 2006, Mandy began working for the Harris County District Attorney's Office. As an Assistant District Attorney, Mandy spent years trying numerous misdemeanor and felony cases. Mandy then accepted a position in the appellate division, where she authored over 125 appellate briefs and writs of habeas corpus on issues concerning everything from misdemeanors to the death penalty. Mandy has also successfully argued before the Texas courts of appeals and the Court of Criminal Appeals on several occasions.

As a defense attorney, she has shown that she is not afraid to force the State to meet its high burden at trial. She has also been successful in having a death row prisoner’s execution halted, and had two clients’ death sentences reversed and returned to the trial court for a new trial.

Mandy's legal practice focuses solely on criminal defense, both at the trial and post-conviction level. No attorney can guarantee you a result in your criminal case, but if there is a legal problem with how the police or prosecutors handled the charges against you, Mandy will find it. Before agreeing to representation, you and Mandy will thoroughly discuss the case, the evidence against you and what result you would like to see. This consultation is at no charge to you.

You are presumed innocent, and the state MUST prove the charges against you. Should you choose to hire Mandy, you will feel confident that you will be involved in every step of your defense. Being charged with a crime is a traumatizing experience. Mandy is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to discuss your case and answer any questions you may have.

Even if you have been convicted of a crime, this does not mean the fight is over. Mistakes are made at trial and even during the plea process. Mandy has years of post-conviction experience in motions for new trial, direct appeals, and writs of habeas corpus. If you believe you did not receive a fair trial, contact Mandy immediately to discuss your case.
