Criminal defense attorney Ronald S. Miller does more than file his briefs — he also takes them off. Miller has spent days in front of a judge and nights in front of a camera as Don Hollywood — porn star. He has performed in more than 90 films in the past seven years, including “Justice Your Ass” and “The Jerry Shag-Her Show.” Miller, 56, tells his clients about his night job and says he has had no trouble balancing the two careers. His wife, a former accountant, is also a porn star. “My whole life, I’ve been one of those people who sees the wet paint sign and has to go up and touch it to see if it’s wet,” said Miller, who is currently working on 30 to 40 cases. “I want to experience everything, try everything.” Ethics expert and attorney Arthur Margolis said Miller isn’t breaking any rules moonlighting as a porn actor. “There isn’t anything more unethical about that than being an actor or a novelist or somebody who sells frozen yogurt,” Margolis said. “The only thing you have to be careful of, as you would in any other industry, is you don’t do anything criminal or unethical in the sense of dishonesty.” Diane Curtis, a spokeswoman for the California Bar Association, declined to comment on Miller’s second career but said Wednesday the bar doesn’t have a policy prohibiting such activity.
