LANSING, Mich. – Governor Gretchen Whitmer today appointed Kameshia Gant to the 6th Circuit Court in Oakland County.
“Kameshia Gant has spent her entire career ensuring that all parties are represented under the law,” Whitmer said. “I have full confidence that she will continue to extend this to her court and ensure the scales of justice remain balanced.”
Kameshia D. Gant received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan and her Juris Doctor degree from Wayne State University. She is a solo practitioner with Gant Law, PLLC, a public defender, and a member of the Black Women Lawyer’s Association of Michigan.
