Miller Johnson is proud to announce that Breanne N. Gilliam has been selected for inclusion in The National Black Lawyers Top 40 Under 40 Black Lawyers in Michigan. Gilliam is an associate in Miller Johnson’s employment and labor practice serving clients from our Detroit office.

This honor is given to only the top 40 under 40 African American lawyers in each state or region with reputations for providing excellent legal representation in their respective practice areas.

“Breanne is well-deserving of this distinct recognition and we are thrilled that her achievements have elevated her in the eyes of the legal community,” said David Buday, Managing Member of Miller Johnson. “Breanne has proven herself to be an insightful, effective, and responsive advocate for her clients early in her career and we know her success will continue.”

Gilliam works with employers on issues involving disabilities and accommodation, employee handbooks and personnel policies, employment discrimination, management and employee training, wage and hour, and workplace harassment. She has defended employers against EEOC and Michigan Department of Civil Rights charges for disability discrimination, housing discrimination, failure to accommodate, workplace harassment, and racial discrimination.
