Carey Miller focuses his practice on litigation, regulation, and government law. He joined the Robbins Firm in January 2019, and also works with the law firm’s affiliate, Robbins Government Relations, LLC.  Prior to joining the firm, Carey served as Executive Counsel to Governor Nathan Deal where he oversaw all legal matters connected to the executive branch of state government and worked extensively with its agencies in managing such issues. In this role, Carey was also the chief liaison between the state Executive and the Judiciary and advised the Governor on judicial appointments to the state’s appellate and trial courts, and legislative and policy matters related to the state’s legal environment.

In litigation matters, Carey played an integral role in managing Georgia’s interests in the tri-state water dispute and continues to advise and assist Governor Brian Kemp on such matters, including disputes surrounding the ACF and ACT river basins, the Army Corps of Engineers’ management of those basins, and Florida v. Georgia, an original jurisdiction action currently before the Supreme Court. Similarly, Carey managed a host of other litigation matters for Governor Deal, including large settlement agreements with the U.S. Department of Justice and other entities, election and redistricting lawsuits filed against the state, and contractual negotiations with the federal government and large Fortune 500 companies. In legal policy matters, Carey chaired the Business Court Subcommittee of Governor Deal’s Court Reform Council and worked with administrative, trial and appellate judges as well as business community leaders, legislators, and Attorney General Chris Carr to produce recommendations and legislation to reform Georgia’s Administrative Procedure Act and amend Georgia’s Constitution to create a State-wide Business Court.  Carey also served as co-Chair of the Georgia Council on Criminal Justice Reform with Supreme Court Justice Michael Boggs, producing bipartisan recommendations which reduced crime and recidivism, making Georgia a nationally recognized leader on criminal justice reform.

A “Double Dawg” graduate of the University of Georgia, Carey earned his J.D., cum laude, from the University of Georgia School of Law. While in law school, Carey was President of the Student Bar Association and Senior Managing Editor of the Georgia Journal of International and Comparative Law. Carey worked with the Honorable Richard W. Story in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia as a judicial intern, served on the Moot Court Executive Board, competed in the ABA National Appellate Advocacy Competition, and participated in the school’s appellate litigation clinic, filing briefs in the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court.

Carey remains actively involved with the Blue Key Honor Society at the University of Georgia, serves on the Lake Lanier Islands Development Authority, and is a member of the Leadership Georgia Class of 2019.
