LABOR DAY CLOSING: Chinn & Associates will be closed for Labor Day.  Have a happy Labor Day weekend!

RECOGNITION: Mark has been selected again for Best Lawyers in America in the field of family law. Selection for Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive and rigorous peer-review survey comprising nearly 4 million confidential evaluations by the top attorneys in the country. The annual Best Lawyers publication has been described by The American Lawyer as "the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice."

Mark’s daughters are busy!  Casey, 22, is in her first month of medical school at the University of Mississippi, home of the first heart transplant and the recent cure of HIV in an infant.  Carly started her freshman year at Ole Miss, selected as the country's Most Beautiful Campus by the Princeton Review.  Conley has started her freshman year at Jackson Academy.

Conley, 14, was recently selected by the Clarion-Ledger of Jackson as the “Metro Player of the Week” for scoring 6 goals in three games, all four of her team’s goals in a 4-1 win against Pillow Academy.

PRESENTATIONS: Mark was among 50 lawyers and Judges participating in the Mississippi Bar Professionalism program at Mississippi College on August 13.  The program is designed to indoctrinate incoming law students into the highest standards of professionalism by pairing them with lawyers and judges in small groups for discussion of ethical issues.
