Fikisha is uniquely experienced in the law
With her prestigious education, Ms. Miller could have done anything - but given her experience with how the district attorney's office exacerbated systemic problems, she chose to join the Nashville, Tennessee Public Defender’s office. Ms. Miller was recognized for her "tireless service to the poor" as she assisted the indigent in protecting their constitutionally guaranteed rights in the criminal justice system.
With experience as both a prosecutor and public defender under her belt, Ms. Miller then went into private practice. A skilled criminal litigator, she would soon also excel in civil litigation. This brought her into contact with both State and Federal courts and deepened her understanding of systemic problems. The difficulty of workers in standing up to discriminatory employers, the struggle of ordinary people to navigate the civil courts when injured, and the role of judges in helping or failing to ensure that justice is done.
Understanding these problems and the desire for justice, Fikisha continued to fight for what’s right and has a track record for success. By unanimous selection of an elected judiciary, Ms. Miller was selected to serve as General Sessions’ Commissioner, a night court magistrate, with the duties of setting bail, issuing search warrants, issuing orders of protection, and competency findings.
In 2014, Ms. Miller found her home, when she took her years of experience and joined the best Public Defender’s Office in the nation in Las Vegas, Nevada. Recognized for her diligence and dedication, she currently serves as both a Chief Deputy Public Defender and Vice-President of the Clark County Defender’s Union.
