Gilliam’s litigation practice focuses on representing manufacturers, suppliers, and contractors in complex litigation, including toxic torts, personal injury, construction defect and products liability.

Gilliam has been successful at the appellate level, having co-authored the winning appellant’s brief in Hart v. Keenan Properties, Inc. (2018) 239 Cal.Rptr.3d 896, 897, a decision finding that a key piece of evidence – a witness account of an disputed sales invoice – was hearsay and resulting in a full reversal of the underlying trial court’s verdict in favor of plaintiffs. As a law student, Gilliam was also involved in legal research projects while interning in the appellate division of the Office of the Prosecutor at the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia in The Hague, Netherlands.
