Devon Mills is an associate in M&R’s Los Angeles office and member of the firm’s Labor & Employment Practice Group. He handles an array of cases, including single plaintiff litigation related to discrimination, harassment, and retaliation claims under FEHA and CFRA, as well as PAGA and class actions in both California state and federal courts. No matter the case before him, Devon adopts a strategic approach that focuses not only on achieving successful outcomes in the courtroom but also on resolving cases efficiently through formal and informal settlements.

Beyond the courthouse, Devon is highly regarded for his ability to provide sound legal counsel to management on various compliance matters, including hiring practices, workplace accommodations, and termination decisions. His advisory work helps businesses navigate the complexities of state and federal regulations, ensuring they remain compliant and mitigate potential legal risks. In addition to his efforts within the firm, Devon is actively involved in the Los Angeles LGBT Bar Association, which is reflective of his ongoing commitment to advancing issues related to the LGBTQ community.

During his academic career, Devon gained valuable experience through various clerkships, including at the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office and as an extern for Judge Otis D. Wright II in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. He holds a Juris Doctorate from Pepperdine Caruso School of Law, where he also earned certificates in Alternative Dispute Resolution and International Law. Prior to law school, Devon authored and introduced legislation in his capacity as a Majority Staff Intern for the Arizona State Senate.
