Brittany J. Mills

Our firm is excited to announce that Brittany J. Mills has joined our team as a summer law clerk. Brittany is a third-year law student at the University of Florida. She will be working at the firm through the end of July and will actively participate in our cases and with our clients.

Her passion for immigration law began in 2009 when she volunteered for a nonprofit working with impoverished and undocumented immigrant communities in North Carolina. At the nonprofit, she helped provide clothing, food, and other basic resources to families in need and organized community events. Her passion has continued to increase and develop into her pursuit of a career in immigration law.

Brittany completed her undergraduate studies at the University of North Florida, where she developed her interest in other cultures through her studies and work on campus. In 2013, she served as the Vice President for the Latin American Student Organization, where she worked with international and domestic students to promote Hispanic culture on the campus. In 2014, Brittany had the opportunity to spend a summer abroad in the city of Santander in Spain, where she studied Spanish and participated in a cultural immersion program. She graduated in 2015 magna cum laude, obtaining bachelors degrees in Spanish and Political Science.

Brittany’s experience interning for a federal magistrate judge and working at other law firms has given her the skills to do well at our firm. Prior to beginning law school, Brittany worked as a law clerk in private practice, which provided her with the skills needed for effective client advocacy. In 2017, Brittany served as a judicial intern at the US District Court for the Middle District in Jacksonville, for Magistrate Judge Joel B. Toomey. Brittany gained first-hand insight into judicial decision making and the inner workings of the courthouse and personally participated in drafting orders, conducting research, and judicial proceedings.

At UF Law, Brittany has made strides in promoting immigration law on the campus. In her second year, she was elected Secretary of the Immigration Law Association where she and other students planned and organized events with guest lawyers from various immigration law practices to speak to students about immigration law. Among the themes of the events were topics such as “Immigration under the Trump Administration,” “Pro Bono Immigration Work,” and “The Effects of the DACA Rescission.” In the fall of this year, she plans to work in the Intimate Partner Violence Assistance Clinic at UF Law, where her work will include helping victims of crime and domestic violence, who are immigrants not in legal status, apply for visas and assist them in judicial proceedings.

We look forward to working with Brittany and hope you will help us welcome her to our firm!
