Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP associate Simon Turner Bailey has been named the recipient of the 2016 Cameron J. Miller Award for Excellence and Community Service. The recognition includes a cash award of $10,000, which will be split between two of Mr. Bailey’s designated charities, the Mississippi Volunteer Lawyers Program and the Redeemer’s School.
Bradley established the Cameron J. Miller Award for Excellence and Community Service in honor of Cameron J. Miller, who, in 2012, passed away due to complications from leukemia during his first year of practice at the firm. The annual award recognizes a first-year Bradley associate who exemplifies excellence in legal work coupled with a high degree of community service involvement. The $10,000 grant is funded by the Bradley Arant Boult Cummings Foundation; Miller’s parents, Frank and Alice Miller; Miller’s fiancé, Katherine Perry; and her parents, Charlie and Sheri Perry.
Bailey just completed a term on the Board of the Jackson Zoological Society and serves on the Advisory Board for the Mississippi College Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Bailey volunteers at his church’s vacation bible school and is involved in the international student ministry, hosting groups of students from Brazil and China. For the past three years, he served as the Pro Bono Committee Chair for the Jackson Young Lawyers, and was awarded the JYL and Capital Area Bar Association 2014-2015 Pro Bono Award for his endeavors.
Bailey’s practice focuses on asbestos and silica mass-tort litigation, product liability litigation, and commercial litigation involving insurance and lending disputes. He is a former law clerk to the Hon. Judge E. Grady Jolly of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. He earned his J.D. (summa cum laude) from the University of Alabama School of Law and his B.B.A. (summa cum laude) from Mississippi State University.
