He read law in the office of Chief Justice Morrison Waite, and was admitted to the bar at Peru, Indiana in 1865. Miller practiced in that city for a short time, and also held the office of county school examiner. He served as President of the Indianapolis Bar Association from 1884 to 1885. For many years, and particularly during the campaign of 1888, he was a confidential advisor to General Benjamin Harrison. In 1889, President Harrison appointed Miller Attorney General.
