Read Mills is an associate in King & Spalding's Washington office and a member of the firm's Special Matters and Government Investigations practice. Prior to joining the firm, Read interned at the United States Court of Federal Claims for the Honorable Marian B. Horn and obtained favorable judgment in a Fourth Circuit prisoner rights appeal while a member of his law school's Appellate Litigation Clinic. 

Read earned his law degree from the University of Virginia, where he was named a Ritter Scholar, served as a Senior Legal Writing Fellow, and was elected to the Raven Society. While in law school, Read also served on the Virginia Law & Business Review editorial board and was a quarterfinalist in the William Minor Lile moot court competition. As a member of Virginia's Appellate Litigation Clinic, Read helped prepare the principal and response briefs in a successful prisoner rights appeal before the Fourth Circuit, which raised novel questions on how subjective intent may be proven with regard to Eighth Amendment excessive force claims. 

Prior to law school, Read attended the University of Alabama, where he earned his B.A. in Philosophy and Political Science summa cum laude
