Walter Boone Appointed to Mississippi Volunteer Lawyers Project Board of Directors

Walter Boone, partner in the firm’s Jackson office and member of the Litigation Practice, was appointed to the Mississippi Volunteer Lawyers Project (MVLP) Board of Directors. Walter will begin his service on the MVLP Board of Directors in March 2017. Founded in 1982, MVLP is a non-profit legal aid organization that connects Mississippians in need of legal help with volunteer lawyers across the state. Throughout its history, MVLP has helped thousands of Mississippians with a wide array of legal matters, and more recently has narrowed its services to assisting clients with domestic matters.  Walter’s appointment to the board caps a long association with the MVLP, including receipt of MVLP’s Pro Bono Lawyer of the Year award in 2014.
