In 2003, Miller-Wilson conducted an assessment of indigent juvenile defense throughout Pennsylvania that led the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to order rules changes resulting in increased funding and support for attorneys representing juveniles in the Commonwealth’s 67 counties. Miller-Wilson was lead counsel in JLC’s 2008 petition to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to ensure accused youth in Luzerne County had the right to counsel.
