Kate Miller, Senior Legal Advocate


After receiving her M.A. in Social Sciences from the University of Chicago, Kate became part of Legal Council’s legal team in 2002, inspired by its strong ethical commitment to care for individuals with HIV. She is one of few paralegals in the nation with the licensure to conduct federal disability cases, and currently works with the Homeless Outreach Project.  Before she moved to Chicago for graduate school, Kate served in Ghana as a secondary school teacher and worked in Seattle as an on-the-street case manager aiding chronically homeless adults with substance abuse and mental health issues.  Kate is an aggressive and successful advocate for all of our clients, but especially for people with mental impairments. She has earned certificates from the Cervantes Institute establishing her fluency in Spanish and was accredited by the United States Immigration and Citizenship Services to represent clients in adjustment interviews.
