Kristina Mills, Division Chief of our Misdemeanor Domestic Crimes Unit, has been selected by the Dade County Bar Association (DCBA) as one of their Women of Distinction as a Rising Star.
Kristina received her undergraduate degree from Spelman College and her Juris Doctor from the University of Miami School of Law in 2012. She began her career in the office in August of 2012 as a prosecutor in the Misdemeanor Domestic Violence (DV) Unit. She was selected as a Certified Training Attorney (CTA) and stayed on an additional four months in the unit as the Interim Assistant Chief while the Division Chief was on maternity leave. Kristina then fast-tracked through the Juvenile Division, assigned to Judge Orlando Prescott’s division.
Once in felonies, Kristina was selected as the Assistant Chief of the Misdemeanor DV Unit in July 2016. Five months later, Kristina was promoted to her current position as the Division Chief of the Misdemeanor DV Unit. She is currently in her second year as Division Chief.
During her time in the Unit, she has trained five new hire classes and has participated on several DV panels, radio shows, and other DV-related events on behalf of the office.
Outside of the office, Kristina was the prior Secretary and is the current Vice President of the South Florida Chapter of the National Black Prosecutor’s Association (NBPA). Through this organization, she volunteers to speak to youth at middle and high schools each semester at “Real Talk” events sponsored by the NBPA and also helps plan other organizational programs and events. Additionally, Kristina is the Financial Secretary for the local South Florida Chapter of the National Alumnae Association of her alma mater, Spelman College, and she also volunteers her time with a mentorship and literacy program in Broward County called Princesses 2 Queens and Princes 2 Kings.
