NYSBA Statement on the Passing of Past President Henry Miller

By Susan DeSantis

Henry Miller

We are saddened to hear that past president of the New York State Bar Association Henry Miller, like so many New Yorkers, lost his life to the coronavirus. Henry was a brilliant advocate, a larger than life personality and a giant in the profession. For decades he was one of the state’s preeminent trial lawyers, and as a teacher he shared those skills with generations of lawyers. He was gentle and kind and patient. He will be truly missed.

In light of the inability to gather due to the constraints of COVID-19, you can share a remembrance about Henry at this site: https://www.dignitymemorial.com/obituaries/scarsdale-ny/henry-miller-9136844/add-memory
