Rebecca Millican is an associate attorney with the firm and spent much of the early years of her career working on behalf of a small non-profit conservation group in litigation against large, well-funded adversaries, developing an affinity for fighting on the side of the underdog in cases with broad impact, particularly environmental matters.
That mindset brought Rebecca to Olson, Bzdok & Howard in the summer of 2016 from Chicago, where she had also practiced commercial litigation as well as maritime and international law.
Rebecca holds a bachelor’s degree in political science and German, and attended law school at the University of Washington in Seattle, graduating with honors in 2011. She has spoken at law schools around the country on international law governing whaling and cetacean conservation. During law school, she was a judicial extern for the Hon.
Ricardo Martinez, US District Court for the Western District of Washington. Before entering the legal field, Rebecca lived in Las Vegas and worked in the culinary industry. Since moving to Traverse City, Rebecca is learning to ride a bicycle again and spends her weekends on the shores of Lake Michigan.
