Prior to joining Simmons Hanly Conroy, Mildred was an associate at Lanier Law Firm. At both firms, her clients were those who suffered injuries or harm by defective products and corporate negligence.  While at Lanier, Mildred worked on the Depuy Orthopaedics Pinnacle Hip Implant litigation, the Johnson & Johnson talc trial in St. Louis, and the National Prescription Opiate litigation MDL 2804. Settlements and verdicts:

  • $350 million in settlements for the city of San Francisco from multiple drug manufacturers and distributors, including Walgreens, Endo, Allergan, Teva, Johnson & Johnson, AmerisourceBergen, Cardinal and McKesson
  • More than $1 billion in two trials as part of the DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant MDL 
  • Unanimous $4.6 billion verdict against Johnson & Johnson on behalf of 22 women who suffered from and/or died from ovarian cancer by exposure to talcum powder
  • Over $325 million in settlements for two Ohio counties as part of the first bellwether trial in the ongoing opioid multidistrict litigation (MDL 2804)
  • $650 million from the abatement phase of the trial against CVS, Walgreens and Wal-Mart for two Ohio counties in the ongoing opioid multidistrict litigation (MDL 2804).

As part of the nationwide opioid litigation, Mildred also served on the trial team in San Francisco that secured a landmark victory for the people of San Francisco. Mildred’s particular focus was creating the liability storylines used each day in court as well as the overall day to day case management. This case was also a significant factor in driving Walgreen’s multibillion dollar, nationwide settlement.
