Lashunda Bobbitt – Paralegal
Lashunda is a graduate of Hinds Community College. She previously performed physically demanding line work in the poultry industry. She is highly intelligent and is able to synthesize large volumes of information accurately and efficiently. Lashunda is extremely skilled at analyzing medical information and legal pleadings. She is well aware of how rules of Court and procedure are practically carried out in the law firm environment. Mike often states she has a photographic memory because that is what she has demonstrated during her time at the office since early 2015.
As Mike’s paralegal, she is the closest consultant on many aspects of practice and law firm management. Mike and Lashunda are actively involved in strategizing, tracking litigation, and coordinating it. Lashunda works closely with Mike during the process of settlement disbursements and many other essential facets of practice. She is involved in inputting information into various ledgers related to accounting of client funds. Mike is always responsible for all aspects of handling client funds, and for reviewing all inputted information such that he considers this the most important part of his law practice. He knows Lashunda is equally committed to ethical standards and therefore trusts her own perspective on all things that need done to comply with fair standards, and with the Mississippi Rules of Professional Responsibility.
While previously serving as director of an advocacy organization, Lashunda had the opportunity to travel extensively, including trips to Washington D.C. speaking on issues that affect many workers and their families daily. She has been very actively involved in numerous community organizing events, in an effort to bring social change and awareness to her community and to all.
Lashunda is president of her church’s youth department, local community outreach programs, and nursing home ministries. She believes the calling on her life is to help others.
Lashunda’s spiritual approach has brought that same grace and perspective on life to this office. She helps the office to have strength and resolve for clients, especially when the office needs to fight for them. She both understands and practices ethics, compassion and tolerance.
Lashunda is a long time resident of Newton where she is close to her family.
