James (Jamie) Roth is an Associate in the Litigation Practice Group. He concentrates his practice in real estate litigation with a focus in eminent domain, as well as business and commercial litigation. Mr. Roth enjoyed a long-standing and distinguished career as a successful real estate consultant, including more than twenty years of private and public sector experience in project management, strategic planning, asset management and risk mitigation. 


Prior to joining Miller, Miller & Canby, Mr. Roth was a Senior Consultant for LMI Government Consulting, where he served eleven years as a Real Estate Program Manager to his client, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), a component agency of the Department of Homeland Security.

In that capacity, he coordinated eminent domain litigation efforts, and supported counsel from CBP, Department of Justice and USACE.


Mr. Roth was awarded a civilian public service medal by Department of the Army for his key role in effecting more than 400 property acquisitions to successfully construct over 600 miles of border fence by 2009. Mr. Roth is also a former U.S. Coast Guard officer. His decorated service included three years as a civil engineer managing the myriad facilities requirements of 24 USCG stations along the Gulf Coast, and three years as Chief Engineer and third-in-command of a 210-foot Cutter in Miami Beach, Florida.
