Attorney at Law

Dea@siebenedmunds.com | (651) 323-2464

Dea Cortney has been a valued member of the Sieben Edmunds Miller team for several years. She has worn several hats at the firm, having started as a law clerk before transitioning to her current role as associate attorney.

As a former law clerk at the firm, Dea assisted the team by conducting legal research, reviewing discovery, and preparing trial materials to assist in the criminal defense of clients. She has also drafted numerous legal documents including motions, memoranda, briefs, and personal injury demand letters. Dea’s adaptability has proven invaluable and serves her criminal defense and personal injury clients well.

Dea has broad experience in several fields, including hospitality, health care, commercial and residential real estate, non-profit management, lobbying, legislative analysis, and philanthropy that lends a unique perspective to her life and work. Because she has worked in so many fields, she is able to see things from multiple angles and finds solutions others might miss.

In November 2020, Dea was featured in the Attorney at Law Magazine (AALM). Read the AALM piece here.

In her free time, Dea enjoys photography, reading, spending time with loved ones, and traveling. In fact, she studied abroad three times in law school – twice in London and once in Israel. Dea enjoys learning about different cultures and how they relate to law; she has taken courses in International Business Law, Comparative Criminal Law & Procedure, Comparative Religion, Conflict Resolution, Immigration Law, and Comparative Criminal Trial Practice.
