Heroes Helping Heroes – May 10, 2018 – The Law Office of D. Miller & Associates, PLLC
We were proud to continue our support for Houston Children’s Charity (HCC) program, “A Better Night’s Sleep” that helps deserving youngsters receive a free bed.
Our Legal Heroes kicked off the event with a four-hour celebration in our Houston office that featured giveaways like a TV and iPad, along with food, drinks, and games for kids. Every $100 donation helped needy children in Houston get a better night’s sleep with a: twin mattress set, bed frame, pillow, and sheets.
Since the HCC began “A Better Night’s Sleep” in 2007, more than 22,000 boys and girls throughout Houston now get the rest they need for school and life.

Lessons by Legends Football Camp – July 7-8, 2018 – W.W. Thorne Stadium
What does a Texas kid do in the summer? Football camp! Our team was proud to be a sponsor for this camp featuring former Houston NFL greats Andre Johnson and Arian Foster.
Miller & Associates, PLLC gave back to the community by helping the young players enjoy two free days of learning about football from professionals and those who train them. Unlike some football camps, Lessons by Legends divided kids into different position groups to learn specific skills. The youngsters had a chance to talk one-on-one with Andre Johnson and Arian Foster. Both of them shared the lessons they learned throughout their lives and in the NFL.

Ride for TBI – August 11, 2018 – Houston
This was our second annual Motorcycle Ride for TBI. We raised nearly $1,500 for victims of traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Many from our team joined motorcyclists from around Texas for this unique police-escorted ride.
Our mission is to help with the life-care expenses of TBI. We hope to attract more riders in 2019 to raise even more funds and awareness of this catastrophic injury.
