Stacy Miller, II received his B.A. from Wake Forest University and his J.D. from Campbell University School of Law, where he was selected as a member of the National Trial Team, Phi Delta Phi Academic Fraternity and the Order of the Old Kevitt. Stacy was admitted to the NC State Bar in 1994. After interning in the Wake County District Attorney's office, he began his career as a criminal defense attorney, which gave him the opportunity to try hundreds of cases and get daily experience in the courtroom.
Stacy brings his vast experience in state and federal court to the cases he litigates today, which includes medical negligence, catastrophic personal injury, wrongful death, products liability, business litigation and commercial torts. Stacy also advises start-up businesses on the best corporate structures, as well as counsels businesses on a variety of business legal matters. Stacy has consistently been awarded the highest AV rating by his peers for excellence in the legal profession.
What Stacy likes best about his job is attaining justice for people who have been wronged. He has represented clients against huge corporations like Wal-Mart, Lowe's, Rite-Aid and Blue Cross/Blue Shield. He has represented people on death row, and he has been part of multi-million dollar settlements. He is just as proud of the smaller cases, such as the time he represented a young girl in student court who was wrongly expelled by her middle school.
Stacy is not afraid to have the odds stacked against him; in fact, he prefers it. A former quarterback at Needham B. Broughton High School and defensive back at Wake Forest University , he is both a team player and a tough competitor. His motto - be unafraid to fail - leads him to innovative strategies for winning. He brings that positive winning attitude to whatever he does for the benefit of his clients.
He was the 2008 Vice President of the American Association of Justice's Professional Negligence Section (2007 Treasurer, and 2006 Newsletter Editor). He is currently an adjunct professor at Campbell University School of Law. He is a member of the Board of Governors for the NC Advocates for Justice and a recipient of the Distinguished Service Award. He is a former Raleigh City Councilman, serving in 1996-1997. His other memberships include American Bar Association, NC Bar Association, Wake County Bar Association, Christian Legal Society, Susie Sharp Inn of Court, National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and the National Institute of Trial Advocacy. Stacy has a Peer Review Rating of AV?PreeminentTM.
He has served on the boards of Building Together Ministries and Fellowship of Christian Athletes and on a committee for Oak Ranch in Sanford, NC. He often gets asked to speak to groups of students, and he volunteers his time judging law student competitions at Campbell University and NC State University. Stacy enjoys the simple things in life like campfires and telling stories, hunting and fishing (especially with his nephews), horseback riding and strumming a guitar. He is also a passionate road cyclist and is a licensed Master USCF racer (view the WRAL panelists discussion on cyclists and motorists sharing the roadways featuring Stacy).
