In his professional career, Jason has experience as an executive, a director of business development, a director of operations, a business consultant, a sales representative, a retail manager, and an accounting technician. After working as an Accounting Technician at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Jason accepted a business consulting position with one of the nation’s largest non-profit animal-related organizations. In short order, Jason was promoted through various positions, ultimately becoming the highest ranking employee of a multi-million dollar corporation. In this role, Jason managed dozens of employees including a call center, a marketing department, an information technology department, and a sales department. Jason negotiated partnerships with multi-national corporations, managed the creation, launch, and distribution of several successful products, and contributed to a national effort to standardize microchip technology.
It was these experiences that inspired Jason to attend law school. His regular interactions with lawyers and law firms exposed him to a gaping hole in the legal community. He found that most business lawyers were focused on identifying risks and restating the law, but only had a superficial understanding of the intricacies of the business world and how the legal process should be navigated to meet strategic goals. A lawyer with a depth of business experience in executive leadership, marketing, operations, information technology, and sales would be better suited to provide legal guidance in the context of the client’s business. A holistic approach that accounts for the businesses’ strategic goals and layers these goals over the risks and opportunities presented in litigation. This is what Jason Miller and Miller Monroe & Plyler bring to the table. And after serving business clients for more than a decade, it is more clear than ever that a deep business skill set not only provides a tremendous advantage to business clients in litigation – it is core requirement for helping clients effectively navigate often complex legal matters while maintaining a focus on serving the businesses’ strategic needs.
Jason Miller has experience in state and federal courts. He has represented Fortune 500 companies in complex business litigation matters, builders and developers in real property disputes, individuals seriously injured in car accidents, investors sued in business deals gone awry, and dozens of cases in between. Jason has litigated matters in more than a dozen counties in North Carolina and is licensed to practice in every state and federal court in North Carolina.
In 2015, Jason was also licensed to practice law in the State of New York.
