Biography

Mr. Millsaps provides world-class legal and business services to cost-conscious clients who seek utmost quality and affordability. Most of his adversaries are Top 100 U.S. law firms, and he handles only a select few matters at a time, ensuring that his clients receive the attention they require and deserve.Mr. Millsaps’ litigation practice focuses on copyright, trademark, trade-secrets, white-collar-criminal, and constitutional law, complex business and contract disputes, and defamation, privacy, right of publicity, and similar areas. He also advises on and negotiates contracts, licenses, and business deals regarding entertainment and technology matters. For large cases that require additional resources, Mr. Millsaps works with other fine lawyers and boutique firms in New York and elsewhere.

In 2001, Mr. Millsaps worked with lawyers, law professors, policy makers, judges, and law students around the country to launch the American Constitution Society for Law and Policy (ACS). During the two years that he served as ACS’s founding Associate Director, the idea grew from a $75,000 seed grant to a national organization with a dozen employees and more than $1.5 million in assets, more than 75 law school and local chapters, and more than 5,000 individual members nationwide. Today, ACS continues to grow, thrive, and influence national legal and policy discourse.

Mr. Millsaps left ACS in 2003 to become a lobbyist for Earthjustice, where, among other things, he crafted and led the successful campaign to persuade forty-four U.S. Senators to filibuster and permanently block the nomination of the Bush Interior Department’s Solicitor General – a vociferous anti-environmental ideologue – to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Before starting his own practice, Mr. Millsaps was an associate at O’Melveny & Myers LLP.
