AG Tom Miller
Attorney General of Iowa
Attorney General Tom Miller was born and raised in Dubuque. He graduated from Wahlert High School, earned his undergraduate degree at Loras College, and completed his law degree at Harvard Law School in 1969.
After serving as a Legal Services lawyer, and then as the city attorney in McGregor and Marquette, Tom Miller was first elected Attorney General in 1978. In 1991, for four years, he worked at a Des Moines law firm Faegre & Benson, and then returned to public service. He is serving his ninth four-year term and is the longest-serving state attorney general in the nation.
At the forefront of Attorney General Miller’s distinguished public service career is protecting consumers. His Consumer Protection Division is nationally recognized for safeguarding Iowans and holding those accountable who try to defraud them.
Mr. Miller also has a long record of leading cooperative and bipartisan efforts by state attorneys general across the nation to take on some of the country’s largest and most powerful special interests.
In 1998, the Attorney General was a leader in the 46-state, $200 billion settlement with the tobacco industry. He led many subprime lending and mortgage servicing cases, including the historic $51 billion National Mortgage Settlement in 2012. These settlements transformed how certain lenders and mortgage servicers must treat borrowers, and they provided significant relief for Iowa borrowers.
In addition to Attorney General Miller’s consumer protection efforts, his office also prosecutes criminals, provides assistance to crime victims, and represents the state’s legal interests.
