Carra Miller has rarely lived far from the Gulf Coast, and her affinity for and knowledge of the region make her a natural to lead the firm’s Corpus Christi office. The native of Ocean Springs, Mississippi received an undergraduate degree in Maritime Administration from Texas A&M (Galveston campus) and earned her law degree from Tulane before establishing her practice in Corpus Christi, where she now considers home. Despite other demands she still tries to find time to enjoy the people, culture and recreational opportunities of a place she truly loves.
The ongoing addition of new terminals and related infrastructure have greatly increased the Port of Corpus Christi’s capabilities to handle the largest oil and LNG tankers and have led to greater business opportunities and demands for the firm and its clients.
Carra has experience in a broad range of maritime law issues in state and federal courts and appreciates the distinct and nuanced nature of each case, which she finds often rest on the confluence of more recent rulings with legal principles that may be thousands of years old. As a result, Carra takes a deep dive into the facts of every dispute to determine the best defense while anticipating the arguments of the opposition. Her clients prize her attention to detail and preparation, whether the matter involves a personal injury claim, cargo damage, a contract dispute or other complex issue.
Carra’s commitment to leadership is evident in her work on behalf of several bar associations. She fervently believes that such networks are where attorneys of every level of experience and area of expertise can both find support and serve as mentors to others.
