Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP has announced that Tiffany M. Graves, Bradley’s pro bono counsel, has been named the 2019 Young, Gifted & Empowered Awards (YG&E) Leader of the Year.
Started in 2015, the YG&E honors young professionals from Mississippi who positively impact their communities, state and the world. Created in response to negative portrayal of African Americans in the media, YG&E shares the stories of those who are change agents among young professionals in the areas of leadership, education, arts, philanthropy, innovation and business.
Graves oversees the development and administration of Bradley’s pro bono programs. Previously, she served as executive director of the Mississippi Access to Justice Commission, for which she promoted initiatives to improve and expand access to civil justice to the nearly 700,000 Mississippians living in poverty. 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.
Graves also is active with numerous professional and community organizations and activities including the Mississippi Commission on the Status of Women and the Community Advisory Board of the MIND Center at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. She is a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation and an Inaugural Fellow of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation Community Leadership Network.
