About Zakiyah Bradford

Zakiyah Bradford is an Associate Attorney at SW&M with experience in Labor and Employment Law. Prior to joining the team, she conducted anti-discrimination/harassment trainings for thousands of personnel in an effort to prevent and if needed, resolve HR complaints.

To Zakiyah, success means, “happy clients and contributing to the development of law in a way where there is equal access and protection for everyone.” This mindset motivated her to support survivors of 9/11 in their personal injury and wrongfully deceased claims. Additionally, she served as a Senior Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Compliance Specialist and an EEO Investigator for a variety of organizations from state government agencies to companies in the private sector.

Zakiyah’s success as an attorney is equally as remarkable as her personal endeavors. She has won several medals for ballroom dancing competitions, had dance cameos in a variety of music videos, is a play and screenwriter, actress, avid traveler and beloved aunt.
