TopicGrowing Your Practice Through Digital Information Products


About

Jess Birken is the the owner of Birken Law Office, a firm designed to help nonprofits and the arts. Before becoming a private practice attorney, she spent four years inside a national nonprofit organization, Pheasants Forever. Jess has worked with nonprofit organizations for most of her career.

Jess worked her way through law school and had the beginnings of a promising career in criminal law after graduation. However, she quickly realized that going to court is depressing! In court, the toothpaste is out of the tube and you’re just trying to clean up the mess. Her colleagues reassured her that she’d become callous and get used to the grim reality. But Jess thought that sounded like a terrible personal outcome and decided she needed to change course. She really missed the nonprofit sector.  As a result, Jess went back to grad school and earned a Masters in Nonprofit Management. She rejoined the nonprofit sector through her work with Pheasants Forever where her role was a marriage of attorney work and federal grant management and administration.

About

Tiffany Graves is an accomplished attorney and visionary leader with over twenty years of experience zealously advocating for marginalized children, individuals and families. Her fight for equity and justice for the underserved began while she was in law school at the University of Virginia School of Law, where she was honored for logging the most pro bono hours of any graduating student with the law school’s Pro Bono Award. She received the law school’s distinguished Powell Fellowship in Legal Services at graduation. The fellowship honors former Supreme Court Justice Lewis F. Powell Jr. and awards salary compensation to a law graduate to enable her to work in public interest law and to enhance the delivery of legal services to the poor under the sponsorship of a public interest organization.  Tiffany used her Powell Fellowship to work at the Mississippi Center for Justice (MCJ), a public interest law firm focused on advancing racial and economic justice.

After completing her fellowship year at MCJ, Tiffany spent four years in private practice developing and honing legal skills that have become essential to her success as a public interest lawyer. In her transition back to public interest, Tiffany led the Mississippi Volunteer Lawyers Project, a statewide nonprofit dedicated to providing pro bono legal services to low-income Mississippians, and the Mississippi Access to Justice Commission, a Supreme Court-created entity aimed at promoting initiatives to improve and expand access to justice to the over 700,000 people living in poverty in Mississippi. She now serves as the first-ever, national pro bono counsel for Bradley Arant Boult & Cummings LLP, a law firm with nine offices in seven states throughout the Southeast.

Tiffany has been recognized for her commitment to pro bono and equalizing the civil justice system with numerous award and honors.  She is a frequent writer and speaker, and she believes firmly in engaging community to further and increase access to legal and other services and social capital.
