Lorna McMillion practices in the areas of small business law, appellate law, and Medicare appeals, and holds the position of Appellate attorney at King Law, P.C. alongside the firm's trial attorney, Michael King.
As the granddaughter of two World War II doctors (Lester E. Wolcott and Donald L. Graves), and the daughter of a doctor and a nurse, Lorna instinctively relates to her clients as a doctor relates to her patients. She understands the value of treating a client as a whole person rather than treating him or her as a single issue. Lorna is a creative, big-picture thinker and is invigorated by thinking outside the box to meet her clients' legal needs in the most effective ways possible.
A former college writing professor, her extensive experience with persuasive speaking and writing allows her to assist clients by drafting carefully-crafted legal documents and making persuasive arguments whether in negotiations with adverse parties or speaking in front of the court. Recently, she successfully defended an appeal in the Seventh Court of Appeals and had the privilege of arguing in person before Chief Justice Brian Quinn, Justice Mackey Hancock, and Justice James T. Campbell. She has also practiced before the First, Fifth, and Eleventh Court of Appeals.
Lorna is a graduate of the Texas Tech University School of Law and received both her M.A. and B.A. from Texas Tech University. During her time at Tech Law, Lorna experienced great success as an oral advocate and brief writer for her national and state moot court teams, finishing as two-time national finalist, a national final four finalist, and a state finalist. She also served as a comment editor on Tech Law's prestigious Law Review journal, where her article, Running the Gauntlet: Wolcott v. Sebelius Reveals Loopholes in the Medicare Part B Appeals Process That the Fifth Circuit Cannot (or Will Not) Close, 45 Tex. Tech L. Rev. 1073 (2013), was published.
Believing in the Big Picture
As a student, Lorna interned for the Honorable Justice Mackey Hancock of the Seventh Court of Appeals; received Top Grade and Distinguished Student Awards for Business Entities, Charitable Gift Planning, Criminal Law, Regulation of Human Subject Research, and Public Health Law; and served as a tutor in Federal Civil Procedure and Criminal Law. Lorna remains involved in the school's advocacy programs by coaching various moot court teams and serving as a guest judge at competitions.
Having grown up in West Texas, Lorna chose to base her practice in Lubbock in order to serve the community she loves. She lives here with her husband (an active-duty sailor in the United States Navy) and her two young sons. In her spare time, she enjoys yoga and leading worship at Turning Point Community Church.
