We are honored to have Michele Weinstat Miller as our May speaker in our White Collar Support Group™ Tuesday Speaker Series. Open to all!

For those of you who don’t recall, Michele is a lawyer who spoke on our panel at the American Bar Association Criminal Justice Conference in Nov. ’22. She was incarcerated in Rikers and is now the General Counsel of the Fortune Society in NYC. Michele’s new novel, the Lower Power, released in the past few weeks.

The Lower Power is Michele W. Miller’s fourth published novel. She has lived most of her life in Upper Manhattan — Harlem and Washington Heights — where her novels often take place and where she currently resides with her husband, 20-year-old twin sons, two cats, and a large dog. Former chief government ethics prosecutor for NYC, she currently serves as General Counsel for a non-profit agency that provides re-entry services to the formerly incarcerated. She has herself overcome addiction, homelessness, and incarceration. She has a black belt in the Jaribu system of Karate and worked her way through law school dancing on roller skates.

“Michele Miller has had more lives than a cat, and they’ve made her a writer of passion and substance.” — Lawrence Block, New York Times Bestselling Author, Praise For The Author
