Andrew Miller is a Senior Litigation Counsel in the Washington, DC office of Sanford Heisler Sharp, LLP, a national law firm with offices in the District of Columbia, New York, California, Tennessee, and Maryland. He received his J.D. from Harvard Law School and his B.A. magna cum laude from New York University.

Mr. Miller co-manages Sanford Heisler Sharp’s opioid litigation, in which the firm represents dozens of counties and cities across the nation in their claims against some of the largest companies in the pharmaceutical industry. The litigation has been described by many scholars and observers as the most complex litigation in the history of the American justice system. Mr. Miller’s local government clients, which include over 60 counties and cities in Virginia alone, are seeking damages and other relief related to the harms they have suffered as a result of the opioid epidemic that has devastated communities across the country.

In addition to his work on opioid litigation, Mr. Miller maintains active practices representing whistleblowers under the False Claims Act and the SEC whistleblower program, employees who have suffered discrimination or other mistreatment on the job, and survivors and family members of those who have been harmed by serious crimes. He advocates for individuals with claims that involve high monetary and emotional stakes, and he has achieved exceptional results for his clients.

Mr. Miller is a highly experienced trial lawyer and has tried dozens of cases to verdict. He is also fluent in Spanish and has extensive experience representing newly arrived immigrants and other Spanish-speaking clients.

Prior to entering private practice, Mr. Miller worked as a prosecutor in Suffolk County (Boston), Massachusetts, where he investigated and prosecuted dozens of cases of felony sexual assault, along with felonies involving gun and knife violence. He has worked extensively with children and adults who have experienced sexual assaults and other forms of violence, and he has honed empathetic, respectful, and trauma-sensitive methods of informing, guiding, and empowering survivors and their loved ones through the often arduous process of seeking justice.

Mr. Miller received his law degree from Harvard Law School, where he was elected as a member of the Harvard Legal Aid Bureau, the nation’s oldest student-run legal services organization and one of Harvard Law School’s three historic honors societies.
