Only a few select lawyers are invited to become Fellows of the Mississippi Bar Foundation. The Fellows designation is the Foundation’s highest honor. Only 10% of the lawyers in Mississippi are eligible for membership as a Fellow, and not more than 15 lawyers per year can be invited to join. Their selection, which is by invitation only, is recognition by their peers that the lawyer has achieved the highest level of professionalism, peer confidence and leadership. Fellows are selected for membership based not only on their excellence as a lawyer, but also by their dedication and service to the public and their profession.
