Senior Associate

Alexandra M. Honeycutt is a Milberg Senior Associate with Milberg’s Cybersecurity & Privacy Practice Group through the Knoxville office location.

Ms. Honeycutt began working with Milberg before her third and final year at the University of Tennessee College of Law. As president of the Environmental Law Organization, she graduated in May 2021 and spent a year working with an Atlanta-based firm that specialized in taxation, real estate law, conservation land easements, securities, and related business transactions.

She began working with Milberg’s Environmental and Class Action Practice Groups. Today, she remains actively involved in class action and multidistrict litigation through data breach, privacy, and consumer protection matters.

Ms. Honeycutt’s data and privacy experience includes leading case investigations and motion briefing in dozens of class actions against HIPAA-covered entities who impermissibly disclosed their patients’ private health information to Facebook, Google, and TikTok. She has been instrumental in bringing national attention to this issue, notably by filing one of the first cases of its kind (Quinto v. The Regents of the University of California, Case No. 22-cv-012970, Sup. Ct. Alameda Cty.)

In the wake of that lawsuit, UCLA issued privacy breach notices to more than 94,000 patients.  

Ms. Honeycutt has also been heavily involved in Milberg’s Video Privacy Protection Act (“VPPA”) litigation group and led the firm’s briefing efforts in Belozerov v. Gannett company, Inc,. 4:22-cv-10838 (D. of Mass. Dec. 20, 2022)(denying defendants motion to dismiss in full) and Harris v. Public Broadcasting Service,  1:22-cv-02456 (N.D. Ga. Mar. 20, 2023)(same).

Ms. Honeycutt has been recognized by the University of Tennessee and Legal Aid of East Tennessee for her pro bono work and was recently awarded Top 40 Under 40 by The National Trial Lawyers for a second consecutive year.

Before relocating to Knoxville, she worked as a naturalist and kayaking guide in Charleston, South Carolina, and later as a mixologist in Asheville, North Carolina. She enjoys rock climbing, hiking, gardening, and being outdoors. She has successfully summited Grand Teton, Half Dome, and small peaks in Patagonia.
