Deanna Pihos, a partner at Miner, Barnhill & Galland who specializes in litigation, joined the firm in 2008 after two judicial clerkships, one in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois and one in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. She divides her time between the Chicago office and Los Angeles, California, and represents clients nationwide.
Deanna pursued a career in law, and specifically joined MBG in order to use her skills as an attorney to promote social justice. This remains her passion today and her practice largely focuses on representing individuals and groups whose rights have been violated, protecting consumers from fraud and working to eliminate discrimination in the workplace.
Deanna works with state governments in complex litigation, represents whistleblowers in qui tam actions, represents employees in cases of discrimination or other disputes relating to their employment, and advises employers on legal issues that may arise during the course of their business, mostly relating to employment policies and employee benefits. Deanna litigates in both state and federal court and her dedication to her clients and providing them the highest quality representation has translated to millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts.
