Charles L. Miller, II, Esq., Associate Attorney
Charles Miller brings a well-traveled and intellectually varied background to the practice of law. This background combined with his formal training in the fields of anthropology and the law facilitates a tremendous ability to interact with and assist clients from an array of economic and cultural backgrounds.
Charles comes from a service family where his father was a naval officer. As a result of being a “navy brat,” Charles traveled a great deal. While growing up, Charles lived in such diverse places as the then Territory of Hawai’i, California, Virginia, South Carolina, and New York. Charles also spent two and a half years residing in Istanbul, Turkey where his father was a member of the US Naval Mission to the Turkish Navy under the provisions of NATO. While in Turkey Charles and his family toured the Holy Land. This trip took him through parts of Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria.
Charles attended the University at Buffalo where he pursued an interest in the past kindled by his stay overseas. He earned a Ph.D. in Anthropology specializing in the archaeology of the northeastern United States. He has authored several articles in this discipline, including an article on the mathematical analysis of survey techniques.
In 1999, Charles’ interest turned to law and he attended the University at Buffalo Law School. During his time at the law school Charles co-founded the Buffalo Intellectual Property Law Journal for which he was Senior Production Editor. Charles also assisted Professor David Westbrook in research for Professor Westbrook’s work, “City of Gold: An Apology for Globalization in a Time of Discontent.” Charles also published an article on Chinese trademark law.
After graduation from law school, Charles worked briefly as an immigration attorney and for Erie County Assigned Counsel. Upon his admission to the Federal District Court for the Western District on New York Charles was assigned a pro bono discrimination case. This work led to Charles meeting Lindy Korn. Charles found his background extremely helpful in this area of law, and he joined Lindy’s firm as a full time associate in 2007.
Since joining the Law Office of Lindy Korn PLLC, Charles has handled all types of discrimination cases under both New York and federal law. He has represented clients in the New York State Division of Human Rights, the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Supreme Court of the State of New York, the Federal District Court, and the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. Charles is admitted to the courts of New York, the Federal District Court for the Western District of New York, the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, and the Supreme Court of the United States.
Charles is also the proud father of a daughter Catherine. Catherine attended the Nichols School in Buffalo and went on to attend the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where she earned degrees in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering, and Mathematics.
