MILES TAKES OATH AS US ATTORNEY
Patrick Miles, Jr. took the oath of office July 9, 2012, as the US Attorney for the Western District of Michigan, which consists of 49 counties, including the Upper Peninsula.
The 44-year-old Grand Rapids lawyer was nominated by President Barack Obama and recently confirmed by the US Senate.
A White House Appointee has not led the US Attorney's Office in Western Michigan for more than five years. Obama first nominated Michigan Attorney Chief M. Scott Brown for US Attorney, but the Senate never acted and Bowen remains in state government. The office has been in the hands of Don Davis since fall 2008.
Patrick Miles, Jr. is the great-nephew to Pastor Arthur and Fern (Johnson) Cross. Pastor Arthur Cross was one of the three founders of the Old Settlers Picnic. Patrick is the son of Patrick Sr. and Shirley (Cross) Miles of Grand Rapids, MI. His sister Angela Miles resides in Chicago.
We are very proud of this "OUTSTANDING US ATTORNEY" who is also an "Old Settler!" Our roots run DEEP!
