Allyson D. Miller
Allyson has a range of experience representing Fortune 500 corporations in high-stakes litigation. Using creativity, communication skills, and attention to detail, Allyson has played a central role in numerous aspects of pre-trial preparation, including drafting successful dispositive and other motions, managing all aspects of discovery, and deposing fact witnesses. Her efforts have paid off. She was a key member of the team that secured a landmark Daubert victory in federal multidistrict litigation where the court excluded all of plaintiffs' causation experts. The court subsequently dismissed every single one of over 1,200 cases pending in the MDL. In separate litigation, Allyson secured a voluntary dismissal after crafting a motion to exclude plaintiff’s sole expert witness. An engaged member of the greater Chicago community, she has represented clients in various proceedings on a pro bono basis.
