FormanWatkins Welcomes New Associate to Jackson Office

Forman Watkins & Krutz LLP is excited to announce the addition of Julian D. Miller to our Jackson office!

Julian graduated cum laude from The University of Mississippi School of Law. He received his undergraduate degree from Harvard University, where he was a staff writer for Harvard Political Review, as well as Remix Magazine. While at Harvard, Julian was a Ron Brown Scholar, a Jackie Robinson Scholar, and a National Merit/Achievement Scholar, and he also received the Marvin C. Pittman Award for Outstanding and Most Dedicated Senior. In 2017, he received the honor of being selected to the "Top 40 Under 40" list by National Black Lawyers.

After three years of anti-poverty work in the Mississippi Delta (where he is originally from) after college, Julian decided to attend law school in order to use the law to serve his purpose and passion for public service and be a top notch litigator. Today, Julian keeps his grand purpose of making others' lives better in mind, as he helps clients navigate their cases with precision and compassion. Julian knows that clients come to him in a crisis they hoped to avoid, and he makes it a priority to approach that crisis with the same urgency as the client desires to get it resolved. Clients can always expect Julian to be honest and motivated, as he believes his work as a lawyer has the potential to create systemic impact and progressive policy change. In addition to having met Magic Johnson and grazed hands with Beyoncé, Julian Miller is unique in that he is the only lawyer in the state of Mississippi to have successfully represented the MS Department of Education, school districts, a charter school, teachers, administrators, and several public school students in school disciplinary and special education matters.  Additionally, Julian has successfully litigated several multi-million-dollar cases at the administrative, trial, and appellate levels in complex governmental litigation, administrative, commercial litigation, products liability, and labor and employment matters in state and federal courts. Clients can be sure they are in good hands, as Julian is a multi-disciplined attorney with a vast repertoire of experience and a heart that cares deeply for every person that walks through his door.
