Malissa Wilson Honored by Mississippi Business Journal as a Leader in Law

Forman Watkins & Krutz LLP is proud to announce that Malissa Wilson was selected as one of 2017’s Top Ten Leaders in Law by the Mississippi Business Journal. Each year, the Mississippi Business Journal recognizes a select group of 40 attorneys who exhibit both the legal success and the qualities of character that exemplify this honor. A reception and awards celebration was held in December to recognize the 2017 honorees.

Before joining FormanWatkins, Malissa worked as a journalist, a public relations practitioner in crisis communications, a defense attorney, a government attorney, and in-house counsel. Malissa's diverse background and vast array of knowledge make her a key asset to the creative, efficient work ethic of FormanWatkins. Though she is not a working journalist covering stories anymore, as an attorney, Malissa offers clients her ability to lay out and present the storyline of their cases clearly and efficiently to a judge or juror. With her experience in crisis communications, she offers a calm and honest confidence that clients will find indispensable in the midst of tough litigation. A firm believer in the golden rule, Malissa handles every case how she would want an attorney to handle a case for her, always going the extra mile and never backing down from a challenge. Working in the areas of Labor Employment, Premises Liability, Civil Rights, and Media Law, Malissa never sees the same work day twice, and welcomes each case’s unique fact patterns and challenging details. Ultimately, clients can expect a thorough job well done when working with Malissa, and will not find a kinder advocate.
