Partner Attorney, Odegaard Kovacich Snipes, PC

With multiple office locations across Montana, Odegaard Kovacich Snipes has experience serving clients throughout the state.

Biography

Andrew J. ("A.J.") Miller is a partner at Odegaard Kovachich Snipes. Although born in Merrillville, Indiana, in 1985, A.J.'s family loaded up a U-Haul and relocated to Montana to be near his father's side of the family in 1988. They have remained in the state ever since, and A.J. therefore doesn't hesitate to label himself as a tried and true Montanan.

The oldest of four children, A.J. attended the Billings Catholic School system for his entire primary and secondary education and graduated with honors from Billings Central Catholic High School in 2003. After high school, he took the 350-mile jaunt down I-90 West to Missoula and proudly attended the University of Montana for his undergraduate education, where he studied English Literature and Creative Writing and also worked for three years as an employee of UM's Residence Life Office.

Committed to Clients

A.J. graduated with honors in 2007 following four surprisingly fast years of studying, exams, late-night term papers, and Griz football Saturdays. With law school at the forefront of his mind, A.J. took a brief hiatus from education after undergrad and spent his weeks at an internship at a Bozeman law firm and his weekends playing bass guitar in various venues in Montana and the Northwestern United States with his band, The Clintons.

In fall of 2009, A.J. he returned to Missoula and began his legal education at the University of Montana School of Law. During law school, he represented University of Montana students in a variety of civil and criminal matters as a legal intern for ASUM Legal Services, participated in the National Moot Court competition, and was selected to be a national member of the Order of the Barristers for Appellate Advocacy at the end of his third year.

He graduated from law school in 2012. Upon successful completion of the Montana bar exam, A.J. moved back to Billings and was a law clerk for the Honorable Judge Gregory Todd of the Thirteenth Judicial District, Yellowstone County. A.J. remained in Billings after his clerkship and worked as an attorney at the Brown Law Firm, P.C., where he gained valuable experience and insight in the fields of insurance coverage and civil defense litigation. In early 2015, he joined forces with his friend and mentor, Paul Odegaard, and shifted the scope of his practice to representing injured people in various personal injury and workers' compensation matters. The pair ultimately formed Odegaard Miller Law, PLLC, in early 2019, to then merge with Mark Kovacich and Benjamin Snipes in 2020 to form Odegaard Kovacich Snipes.

A.J. is licensed to practice in Montana state and federal courts and holds memberships in the Yellowstone Area Bar Association, American Bar Association, American Association for Justice, and Montana Trial Lawyers Association. In the community, A.J. serves as a member of the Billings Catholic School Board. Outside of work, he enjoys spending time with his big fat Greek family; traveling the globe with his lovely fiancé, Karen; dusting off the old bass for the occasional Clintons performance; geeking out on any and all sci-fi; and having his heart broken year-in and year-out by the Chicago Bears, Chicago Bulls, and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
