Bradley is pleased to announce that the Mississippi Bar has appointed Tiffany M. Graves and Clarence Webster III as chairs of the Family Law and Litigation sections, respectively, for the 2018-2019 terms.

“We congratulate Tiffany and Clarence on their appointments as section chairs with the Mississippi Bar,” said Bradley Jackson Office Managing Partner Margaret Oertling Cupples. “We are grateful for their continued leadership and service to the Jackson legal community.”

The purpose of the Mississippi Bar’s Family Law Section is to improve the quality of legal practice for bar members in the family law area and to keep bar members informed of the numerous changes and trends in this field of law. Through newsletters, email services, and CLE Seminars, the bar’s Litigation Section provides, analyzes and discusses methods and services designed to promote justice in the courts.

Based in Bradley’s Jackson office, Ms. Graves serves as the firm’s pro bono counsel and oversees the development and administration of Bradley’s pro bono programs. Previously, she served as executive director of the Mississippi Access to Justice Commission, promoting initiatives to improve and expand access to civil justice to the nearly 700,000 Mississippians living in poverty. Ms. Graves also formerly served as interim director and adjunct professor for the Pro Bono Initiative at the University of Mississippi School of Law, and as executive director and general counsel for the Mississippi Volunteer Lawyers Project.

Ms. Graves received her J.D. from the University of Virginia School of Law and her Bachelor of Arts from Hollins University.

Serving as counsel in the firm’s Jackson office, Mr. Webster is a member of Bradley’s Litigation Practice Group. He has represented and advised a broad range of clients in a variety of matters, including financial services litigation, products liability and mass torts litigation, labor and employment matters, and appellate litigation. He has represented financial services clients in litigation involving the application of state and federal statutory and common law, including handling disputes arising out of tax sales, judicial and non-judicial foreclosure sales, TILA, and HAMP.
