Julian is a rising star in the field, with a hefty list of important litigation involvement complementing his extensive civic engagement. As the lead attorney for the MC Law education clinic, Julian coordinates among our attorneys and a team of student attorneys in advocating on behalf of clients across the state in matters ranging from individual cases to policy advocacy work.

Jennifer Parks was awarded the Civic Star for dedicating over 131 civic hours throughout 2020 to organizations and non-profits, including Jackson Legal Professionals Association (President – 2020-2021), Mississippi Legal Professionals Association (current Vice President and future President-Elect), and Southside Assembly of God (Women’s Connection Board, Youth Leader and Media Department team), just to name a few!
