She is a seasoned trial attorney, equally effective in state and federal court. Prior to joining the firm, Mira worked as a public defender in Philadelphia and tried more than 100 cases to verdict, including several successful jury trials.

Mira served as a law clerk to the Honorable Anthony J. Scirica, Chief Judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit and to the Honorable Joseph E. Irenas of the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey. During law school, Mira was the first recipient of the University of Pennsylvania Law School Fellowship for Social Justice in the Delaware Valley and served as a developer and inaugural fellow for Project Dawn Court, the nation’s first problem-solving court designed for women involved in prostitution.

Mira also has an active pro bono practice, in which she seeks out indigent clients in need of support and representation, such as her representation of juvenile lifer Norman Bryant, recently released after 32 years of incarceration. She also was part of a team in 2017 that successfully challenged the strictest visitation policy in the federal prison system.
