As our firm continues to grow, we constantly look to recruit new talent to help us better serve our clients and reach out to even more families and individuals in financial distress. I am very pleased to announce that a new attorney has joined with us in our quest. Wes McKenzie is a native Mississippian who is committed to serving the legal needs of his fellow Mississippians. In 2008, Wes earned his undergraduate degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Marketing from the University of Mississippi. In 2013, he earned his Doctor of Jurisprudence from the Mississippi College School of Law.
Wes brings an impressive set of talents to our practice. His past legal experience includes representing clients in both civil and criminal matters as well as in consumer bankruptcy cases. He comes to us with a desire to concentrate his efforts and talents in helping financially stressed consumers get the debt relief they deserve. And while he will concentrate in consumer bankruptcy and related consumer law, our clients will benefit from the broad legal experience he brings to us. Effectively representing a financially distressed consumer in a bankruptcy case often depends on other areas of the law. Often other areas of the law have a significant impact on the ultimate outcome of a consumer bankruptcy case. Knowledge of these other areas of the law is frequently a determining factor in the successful outcome of a debt relief case.
Wes also brings experience in trial practice and procedure. Most consumer bankruptcy cases do not involve much, if any, actual trial work. But, when these cases do involve hearings and trials, the ability to handle oneself effectively in the courtroom is essential. Wes brings those skills to us as well.
We feel very fortunate to have Wes on our team. So, welcome Wes McKenzie!
