17th Circuit Candidates

William H. Miller

I graduated from the George Mason University School of Law in 2005 and began my legal career working as a Public Defender in March 2007. 

Since that time, I have had the opportunity to serve in the Office of the Public Defender in three different counties in Virginia:  Halifax, Stafford, and Arlington.  I have served as a Public Defender in Arlington since December of 2009. 

I have been an active member of the Arlington Bar Association serving as Secretary in 2011, on the Judicial Selection Committee in 2015 and presently on the Board of Directors.  I look forward to representing the Seventeenth Judicial Circuit on the Virginia State Bar Council.
