Brandt T. Miller



Brandt Miller graduated from the University of Illinois College of Law in 2020 and has been a practicing attorney since January 2021. His practice has primarily consisted of worker’s compensation defense and insurance defense claims, representing employers, insureds, and third party administrators, with a bit of personal injury work as well. In this capacity, Brandt has navigated pretrial file assessment and client analysis, pretrial arguments with the opposing counsel, negotiating and drafting settlement contracts, deposing expert witnesses, and taking matters to trial.

His focus pre-practice was also on litigation, as he worked and performed in tournaments in UIUC’s Phi Alpha Delta Mock Trial, Trial Team and Moot Court extracurriculars in law school and worked as a 711 Law Clerk at the Illinois Attorney General’s office in the summer of 2019. In the latter capacity, Brandt worked predominantly in federal civil rights matters, particularly 1983 claims, and had the opportunity to assist in moving matters through litigation, and assist in taking a case to trial. In his law school extracurriculars, the Phi Alpha Delta team that he performed on took third place at the conference’s national tournament in D.C. and received the Best Prosecution award (the side on which he performed as an attorney). Brandt then served as a coach for the following year’s team of Phi Alpha Delta students, who would ultimately place second at that year’s tournament.
