Mira Serrill-Robins is an Associate in the Litigation Department, resident in the Los Angeles office, where she was previously a summer associate.
During Mira’s law school career, she was actively involved in pro bono work. For example, Mira successfully represented a mentally ill client who had served 16 years of a 25-to-life sentence under California’s Three Strikes law for the third strike crime of shoplifting three disposable cameras from a drug store. Mira and her clinic partner investigated the case, interviewed witnesses, and drafted a brief that convinced the Chief Judge of the Los Angeles Superior Court to grant a resentencing hearing and, ultimately, to grant the client’s release.
For her work on various pro bono matters while in law school, Mira received a California Bar Foundation Public Interest Scholarship, as well as a Stanford Law School Pro Bono Distinction award. Mira was also a member of the William A. Ingram Inn of Court and a board member of the grassroots law student organization Building a Better Legal Profession.
Before attending law school, Mira worked for two years as a Trial Preparation Assistant and Investigative Analyst at the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office’s Frauds Bureau.
