Miller & Associates, Inc., is a 2nd generation, a minority-owned firm based in Atlanta, Georgia. M3 Consulting conducted the very first disparity study in the United States for Hillsborough County, Florida in 1988, which correctly anticipated the direction of the U.S. Supreme Court. Since then, M3 Consulting has remained on the cutting edge, creating industry-adopted methodologies, and going on to conduct over 140 disparity studies across the country on the local, state, and federal level. Known as the “creators” of the disparity study industry, M3 Consulting has over 35 years of experience in inclusive policy initiatives, disparity study analysis, and minority/women-owned business enterprise (M/WBE) program design and development. The firm has conducted disparity studies in 9 of the 11 judicial circuits and engaged in litigation in 5 of the 11 judicial circuits, including the most conservative circuits: 1st, 2nd, 5th, 6th, and 11th.
