Judge Kerwin A. Miller, Sr. is a native of the Bronx, New York. While growing up there as young teenager, he read an article about how unlikely it was for an African American male to graduate high school. He took the article as an insult and a challenge.

In 1995, he graduated from Mary Washington College with a degree in Business Administration. Shortly thereafter, he enrolled in Southwestern University School of Law in Los Angeles, California. In 1999, he obtained his juris doctorate and established his law office a year later. In 2001, he began working as a staff attorney with the Legal Aid Bureau in Baltimore city. Since then, he has served in numerous positions, including being a public defender in Baltimore city and county, an assistant state’s attorney in Baltimore County State’s Attorney’s Office and the Cecil County State’s Attorney’s Office, as well as the deputy state’s attorney in the Cecil County State’s Attorney’s office. In 2015, he became an administrative law judge with the Office of Administrative Hearings for the state of Maryland. Four years later, he was appointed by Governor Larry Hogan to serve as an Associate Judge in District 9, Harford County in Maryland. Currently, he resides in Maryland with his wife and two children.

What remains evident and became magnified is the need to sustain advocacy for lasting structural changes in oppressive systems. These changes will lead us to a new path forward that will ensure liberty and justice is for all.
