Mr. Miller’s practice is focused on zoning, land use, real estate law, government relations, and municipal law. His areas of concentration include development agreements, rezoning ordinances, code enforcement, intergovernmental financing agreements, and complex transactional matters. Prior to joining Burch & Cracchiolo, he served as the Town Attorney for the Town of Paradise Valley for 22 years from 1998-2020.
Mr. Miller oversaw high-quality growth and development that strictly adhered to the ordinances and zoning codes that so deftly sets Paradise Valley apart from other municipalities in the Valley of the Sun. Under his tutelage, Andrew guided residents, custom home builders, developers, and business owners in the establishment and expansion of building projects including the Montelucia, Mountain Shadows, Sanctuary, Camelback Inn, and Ritz-Carlton (Paradise Valley) resorts.
Mr. Miller provided legal advice/interpretations of laws/statutes to the Town Council, Town Manager, Mayor, Police Department, Department heads, Boards, and Commissions, including reviewing, evaluating, and recommending approval/modification of legal documents such as contracts, deeds, and bonds; drafts/interprets Town Ordinances; represents the Town in Maricopa County Superior Court and State of Arizona administrative proceedings.
Mr. Miller also provided legal advice to Town staff in general on matters such as zoning, land use laws and condemnation; contract drafting and public bidding laws litigation management; code enforcement advising and prosecutor supervision; public records and open meeting laws; telecommunication, wireless facilities, antenna site leases, and cable television licensing issues; and employment and administrative law matters. He had significant interaction with citizens on Town zoning code and other code provisions and worked directly with vendors, public utilities, or other public agencies in negotiating and drafting contracts.
Specific to short term rentals Andrew lobbied against the State of Arizona’s preemption of municipal regulation over short term rentals (SB1350, in 2016) with his testimony leading the legislature to make modifications to state laws so that municipalities could still limit commercial uses of short term rentals and has prosecuted many property owners for “commercial rental” of single-family properties for events such as weddings, super bowl-related corporate parties or events, auctions, and non-family related party rentals.
Andrew continues to work with cities and town residents on new legislation to repeal portions of the state preemption so as to permit Arizona municipalities to exercise greater land-use restrictions on short-term rentals.
