Attorney in Park City feted as a leader in community
Christina Inge Miller has been a leader in a range of organizations outside her legal practice, including time spent as the president of some of them.
Miller recently was named the recipient of the annual Community Leadership Award, presented by the Leadership Park City training program. She joins a list of well-known Parkites who have received the award over the years.
She said she spends 10 hours per week or so on volunteer or not-for-profit work. In the past, she spent upward of 30 hours a week on the work.
Miller is a past president of the Park City Rotary Club, a past president of the leadership board of the chapter of Habitat for Humanity that serves Summit County and Wasatch County and once was the president of the board of the Egyptian Theatre.
"Ever since I was in college, I’ve been a joiner in various organizations," Miller said in an interview.
Miller was also one of the instrumental figures in launching what is known as the Tuesday Night Bar, which offers free legal advice to people in the community once a month. She is no longer involved but was one of the founders of the Tuesday Night Bar in the 1990s. Up to five attorneys participated when she was involved.
People are "incredibly appreciative" of the Tuesday Night Bar, she said. The attorneys who participate are "giving back to the community in some way," she said.
"I think every attorney who’s ever gone to the Tuesday Night Bar has left there feeling good. You have to," Miller said.
Miller lives in Mountain Ranch Estates and moved to Park City from Idaho in 1996. The Miller Law Group has been based in Park City since 2002.
In a release announcing the award, Leadership Park City said Miller is a "community treasure."
"She literally never sits down to take a break. Ever. She is incredibly motivated and hard-working, and despite what she’ll try to tell you — she is also one of the most giving and kind-hearted people you’re ever be likely to meet," the release says.
According to the release, Miller has also been involved with organizations like the Children’s Justice Center that has served Summit County and Wasatch County, the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Utah and the Utah Family Law Center.
She is a graduate of the Leadership Park City program as well. Miller also is a member of an advisory committee of the Summit County Sheriff’s Office, is a member of the Administrative Control Board of the Park City Fire District and has provided free legal services to not-for-profit organizations as they were started.
