Channing Robinson-Holmes Joins Firm as Attorney

Channing Robinson began working as a law clerk at the firm in October 2015 while she was still in law school. Since that time, she has devoted innumerable hours to the firm's class actions against Michigan's Unemployment Insurance Agency, as well as the firm's several class actions filed on behalf of those affected by the Flint Water Crisis. She has also assisted in many of the firm's civil rights cases, including discrimination cases based on age, national origin, sex, race and disability, cases alleging retaliation and sexual harassment, and violations of the Family Medical Leave Act and the Fair Labor Standards Act. Prior to clerking for the firm, Robinson interned at the Sugar Law Center for Social & Economic Justice, the Center for Civil Justice, and Goodman Kalahar, P.C. She is an active member of the National Lawyers Guild and a consistent and vocal advocate of social justice. She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan where she majored in English Literature and minored in European History. She went on to graduate from Wayne State University Law School in 2016. During law school, Robinson served on the Executive Board of the law school's The Journal of Law in Society. Robinson and her husband, Buddy Holmes, enjoy traveling, attending sporting events and spending time with their family, friends, and three dogs.
