Attorney Profile

Attorney Miranda Mills is a partner with the Roberts Law Group, PLLC, where she works out of the firm’s Raleigh law office and provides exceptional advocacy and support to those who stand accused or are under investigation for virtually any type of felony or misdemeanor offense.

Devoting her entire practice to criminal defense, Ms. Mills entered the legal profession for largely personal reasons after a member of her own family was charged with murder. Through this experience, she saw firsthand the struggles the accused can face when dealing with the criminal justice system and how even mere accusations of a serious crime can adversely affect someone’s life as well as the life of his or her family.

Resolved to do something about it, she attended Wake Forest University School of Law in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, obtaining her Juris Doctor in 2010. While in law school, she served as notes and comments editor for the Wake Forest Law Review, and she received the CALI Excellence for the Future Award – Children and Domestic Violence in 2009. In addition, she also received the “Book Award” from the North Carolina Academy of Trial Lawyers in 2010.

After receiving her license to practice from the North Carolina State Bar in 2010, Ms. Mills honed her legal skills at several other prominent area law firms before joining the Roberts Law Group, PLLC, in 2014. During her career, she has secured numerous dismissals, acquittals and not guilty verdicts for serious crimes such as first-degree rape and first-degree murder as well as identity theft, child abuse and more.

She can legally practice before all U.S. District Courts in North Carolina, and she is actively involved with the North Carolina Bar Association and the Mecklenburg County Bar Association, among other professional affiliations. She also holds a Superb rating on Avvo for criminal defense, and The National Trial Lawyers has voted her among the country’s Top 100 Trial Lawyers.

Verdicts/Settlements:

  • Charges: Conspiracy to Distribute Oxycodone, 21 U.S.C. § 846; Possession with Intent to Distribute Oxycodone and Aiding and Abetting the Same, 21 U.S.C. § 841(a)(1) and (b)(1)(C), and 18 U.S.C. § 2.Facing: 20 years' imprisonment on each count.Result: 57 months.  United States v. D.G.: Our client hired the firm after already having entered a guilty plea in federal court. Due to these circumstances, our goal was receive the most favorable outcome possible for our client at sentencing. Initially, the Government argued that our client was responsible for 6,750 thirty milligram Oxycodone pills. Given this large amount of pills, the United States Sentencing Guidelines recommended a sentence of 87-108 months. After filing lengthy legal and factual objections to the 6,750 pill amount, the Government conceded that the amount of pills attributable to our client was only 3,350 thirty milligram Oxycodones. This concession reduced our client's recommended sentence to 57-71 months. After filing a motion for a downward variance and downward departure, we persuaded the Court to impose a sentence at the bottom of the recommended range, 57 months, which was 30 to 51 months below our client's initial sentence recommendation.
  • Charges: Trafficking in Marijuana by Transport; Trafficking in Marijuana by Possession (N.C.G.S. § 90-95(h)(1)) ; Manufacturing Marijuana (N.C.G.S. § 90-95(b)(2)); Maintaining a Motor Vehicle for Keeping or Selling a Controlled Substance (N.C.G.S. § 90-108(a)(7))Facing: 62 - 112 months (with a mandatory minimum of 25-39 months)Result: Probation  State v. V.E.: Defendant was stopped in his car for a Window Tint Violation and Driving While License Revoked. The officer searched Defendant's car based on alleged odor of marijuana, after detaining him from a questionable period of time. After questioning the validity of the officer's actions during the stop and offering some general character information about our client, we were able to persuade the Assistant District Attorney to allow our client to enter a plea to Attempted Trafficking. This allowed our firm to argue for and win a probationary sentence on behalf of our client.
  • Charges: Two Counts Transporting Child Pornography, 18 U.S.C. 2252(a)(1); Two Counts Production of Child Pornography, 18 U.S.C. 2251(a); Two Counts Advertising for Child Production, 18 U.S.C. 2251(d); One Count of Possession of Child Pornography, 18 U.S.C. 2252(a)(5)(B)Facing: Minimum 15 years and maximum 160 years (life) in prison (15-30 years per count of Production of Child Pornography; 20 years per count for Advertising, Transporting, and Possessing Child Pornography)Result: 20 years  United States v. T.B.: Defendant was actively involved in secret online communities designed specifically for individuals who wanted to download and share child pornography. Upon execution of a search warrant, he was found to be in possession of over 2,000 videos and images of child pornography. He was also having video chat sessions with teenage minors and his chat sessions contained sexually explicit material. Defendant had requested the minors to engage in sexually explicit activities during their video chat sessions and had created "screen shots" of the minors performing the requested activities. The Assistant United States Attorney described Defendant's collection of child pornography as some of the most violent and horrifying images ever seen by her office and she requested that the judge impose a 40 year sentence for our client. However, we were able to assist our client with obtaining a mental health assessment and treatment, which revealed mitigating information about our client's past. At the sentencing hearing, we were able to demonstrate to the court that our client had suffered severe childhood trauma and had never received any type of counseling or therapy to cope with his trauma. Had he received such counseling, he may not have been involved in this conduct. We were also able to demonstrate to the court that our client had never had any physical contact with a minor, despite having engaged in sexual explicit conversations online. This distinguished him from the average defendant charged with producing child pornography. Our client received a 20 year sentence.
  • Investigation by United States Department of Agriculture Food and Nutrition Services (FNS)  Accusation: "EBT" trafficking, Section 271.2Facing: $59,000 fine; permanent disqualification from "SNAP"Result: Investigation closed without penalty USDA v. W.T.: The USDA notified our client that her business had violated regulations of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistant Program ("SNAP"). The violation notice alleged that a large number of transactions appeared to be "unusual" or "irregular" for her business. Three categories of suspicious transactions were cited: 1. Excessively large purchase transactions, 2. Unusual number of transactions that ended in the same "cent" value, and 3. Multiple transactions from the same benefit account in unusually short time frames. In response to the violation notice, we provided photos, invoices, and receipts related to our client's business inventory. We also provided affidavits from customers of the business, explaining the types of purchases that they commonly made. With this information, we were able to address each allegation made against our client's business and persuade the officer to close his investigation against the business. The business was permitted to continue accepting EBT from customers.
  • Charges: Felony Possession of Cocaine, N.C.G.S. § 90-95; Felony Possession with Intent to Sell & Deliver Marijuana, N.C.G.S. § 90-95; Felony Possession of Marijuana, N.C.G.S. § 90-95Facing: 24 months - 57 monthsResult: Plea to Misdemeanor Possession of Drug Paraphernalia; Complete substance abuse assessmentState v. B.F.: Our client was approached by law enforcement while standing outside his vehicle in the parking lot of his place of employment. During questioning, he confessed to using marijuana and having marijuana in his vehicle. Upon consenting to a search of his vehicle, law enforcement found cocaine in the center console. Our client had a lengthy criminal record and was facing an active prison term if convicted. After our client retained our firm, we challenged the legality of our client's detainment in the parking lot. Upon reviewing our legal arguments, the Assistant District Attorney offered our client a misdemeanor plea to Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. Sentencing was in the discretion of the court. At the sentencing hearing, we successfully assisted our client in avoiding active prison time and supervised probation. Our client only had to pay small fine and complete a substance abuse assessment.
  • CHARGES: - Indecent Liberties with a Minor (10 counts)  State v. A.B. - Our client was alleged to have sexually assaulted his 13 and 15 year old stepdaughters. The allegations were made by one of the stepdaughters to her school counselor. Child Protective Services conducted an investigation and referred the matter to local law enforcement. We conducted our own investigation, which included interviewing all of the minor children in the home. Both minor children agreed that they lied to law enforcement, because they were angry at their stepfather for disciplining them. They wanted their mom and stepfather to split up. We presented these findings to the district attorney. After reviewing our documentation, the State made the decision to dismiss all charges.
  • Charges: Habitual Felon (N.C.G.S. § 14-7.1); Trafficking in Methamphetamine (N.C.G.S. § 90-95(H)(3B) (two counts); Manufacture of Methamphetamine (N.C.G.S. § 90-95(B)(1A)); Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (N.C.G.S. § 90-113.22(A)); Maintaining a Motor Vehicle/Dwelling Place for Keeping or Selling a Controlled Substance (N.C.G.S. § 90-108(a)(7)); Felony Probation Violation (N.C.G.S. § 15A-1345)Facing: 624 - 791 months plus revocation of probationResult: Probation State v. S.C.: Client was charged along with 2 other codefendants in the manufacturing and trafficking of methamphetamine. After law enforcement found a "clandestine laboratory" in the codefendant's vehicle, a search warrant was executed at our client's home. Law enforcement located cleaning supplies and alleged that the cleaning supplies were "methamphetamine precursors." Our client was facing mandatory prison time, if convicted. The Assistant District Attorney indicted our client as a "habitual felon," due to his prior criminal history, exposing our client to even more active jail time if convicted. Further complicating matters, Defendant was already on probation at the time of the offense and, if convicted, he was facing the activation of his probation sentence. We placed the case on a trial calendar and demanded to inspect the evidence seized from our client's home. After inspecting evidence and identifying weaknesses in the state's case, we were able to persuade the Assistant District Attorney to dismiss four of our client's charges and stipulate to a full probationary sentence on the remaining offense. We further persuaded the judge to strike our client's probation supervision fees for the duration of his probationary sentence.
  • Accusation: Felony Larceny and Breaking & Entering with Intent to Commit LarcenyFacing: 12-34 monthsResult: No charges filed  State v. A.W. -- Client was caught on video entering a locked tool shed and stealing numerous pieces of farm equipment from his neighbor. We were able to gather evidence that our client had a substance abuse problem, which lead to his actions. The owner of the property agreed not to proceed with filing a report against our client in exchange for full repayment of the stolen property and proof that our client completed a substance abuse treatment program.
  • Charges: Assault with a Deadly Weapon Intent to Kill Inflicting Serious InjuryFacing: 73-100 monthsResult: Dismissed.  State v. F.B. - Client was involved in a verbal altercation with a stranger at a gas station that turned violent. The stranger attacked our client, at which time our client used a pocket knife to stab his attacker. Law enforcement charged our client, alleging that he used excessive and unnecessary force. We investigated the incident and found that the alleged victim had a history of violent crime convictions on his record. We were also able to find a bystander who recorded most of the incident on her cell phone. We obtained the cell phone recording and presented it to the District Attorney, along with a copy of the attacker's criminal history. We were able to persuade the district attorney that our client stabbed the man in self defense. Our client's charge was dismissed.

The child's mother, who was in a relationship with our client, was also charged with child abuse. Client, prior to obtaining counsel, told law enforcement that he had grabbed the child's arm earlier that week, but did not think that he had grabbed the child hard enough to hurt him. Client also admitted to law enforcement that he was high on drugs during the time when the child was hurt. Client was able to enter an Alford plea to a lesser offense of Negligent Child Abuse, where he did not admit guilt but accepted punishment. Client received probation.
  • CHARGES: - Statutory Rape (30x) - 2nd Degree Sexual Offense Against a Mentally Impaired Person (10x) - Sexual Exploitation of a Minor  State of NC v. RW -- Client had two prior convictions for Indecent Liberties with a Minor. Client, who was elderly and in failing health, was in a consensual relationship with a 20 year old woman that ended over a dispute about his Last Will and Testament. After the relationship ended, she made a report to law enforcement that the relationship began when she was 14 years old. She further alleged that our client threatened her and her family members. Finally, she alleged that our client engaged in sexual acts and forced her to engage in sexual acts with a family friend who was mentally impaired. Prior to retaining an attorney, our client told law enforcement officers that the relationship began when the woman was "15 or 16" and that he took of a photo of her while she was under the age of 18. Upon investigation, we were able to present numerous witnesses who agreed that they had not seen our client with this woman until she was 16 years old. We were also able to present letters written by this woman to our client, where she discusses being angry at our client for spending money on his children instead of on her. Client entered a plea to one count of Indecent Liberties with a Minor Child. All remaining charges were dismissed.
