Miller & Martin Celebrates 150 Years

October 27, 2017

For 150 years, Miller & Martin PLLC has provided wise counsel and skilled advocacy to some of the world’s most successful businesses, and the firm recently celebrated its sesquicentennial at Hunter Museum of American Art.

Senator Bob Corker, who is a longtime client of the firm, addressed the crowd via video from Washington, D.C., and proclamations honoring the occasion were presented by Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam, Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke, and Hamilton County Mayor Jim Coppinger.

Also on hand was Bill Antholis, director and CEO of the Miller Center of Public Affairs at the University of Virginia. Antholis noted the vision and generosity of Miller & Martin founding partner Burkett Miller, who established the center in 1975 at his law school alma mater in honor of his father, White Burkett Miller. A nonpartisan entity, the Miller Center “specializes in presidential scholarship, public policy, and political history and strives to apply the lessons of history and civil discourse to the nation's most pressing contemporary governance challenges.”

Miller & Martin Chairman James Haley announced the creation of a 150th anniversary scholarship in conjunction with Boys & Girls Club of Chattanooga. The nonprofit’s executive vice president, Debbie Gray, expressed appreciation not only for the financial contribution but also for the firm’s commitment “to enable all young people, especially those who need it most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens."

Along with these distinguished guests, Chairman Haley joined numerous guests in celebration of the firm and its 15 decades of success.

Here’s to the next one hundred fifty years!
