Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP has announced that Tiffany M. Graves, Bradley’s pro bono counsel, has been named a 2019 Legal Rebel by the ABA Journal, the flagship publication of the American Bar Association (ABA).
The ABA Journal Legal Rebels project profiles innovators who are finding new ways to practice law, represent their clients, adjudicate cases, and train the next generation of lawyers. The project also describes the changes these mavericks are making, according to the ABA Journal, which is sharing the honorees’ stories via the magazine, on the publication’s website, and through its social media channels.
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 Millsaps College Board of Visitors, the Community Advisory Board of the MIND Center at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, the Association of Pro Bono Counsel, the ABA, and the Mississippi Bar. She is a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation and an Inaugural Fellow of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation Community Leadership Network.
