To Elisa Miller, an associate in our New York office, practicing law is “not just about doing well—it’s about doing something interesting.” Her passion for First Amendment rights and desire to practice at a market-leading firm drew her to Davis Wright Tremaine. “I always had in mind that this is where I wanted to be,” says Elisa.

Elisa first worked at Davis Wright Tremaine as a 1L summer associate in New York. Several years later she was doing general litigation at another firm when a lateral opportunity arose in our New York office. “I jumped on it,” she says.

Now she’s building the career she envisioned, working on First Amendment cases and media-related matters.

“You can be a good lawyer at a lot of good places,” says Elisa, “but you may not get the kind of work that sustains your interest and passion long-term. I chose Davis Wright Tremaine because I knew I’d find that here.”
