REDISCOVERING MSLPA

Hello everyone and welcome to the Mississippi Legal Professionals Association's website. It is my great honor and happiness to be serving as MsLPA's President for 2020-2021. For this year, I have chosen the theme of "Rediscovering MsLPA". With this notion, I want to help the association Recruit new members, Retain current, and Reclaim members who have parted from the association. However, I am not able to do this alone, so I need everyone's help in bringing this association closer together and REDISCOVERING all the wonder of MsLPA. I do look forward to working with all the members during this year and finding new members to share my experiences!

If you are not currently a member, please come and join this amazing association!
