About Ms. Fry
Following graduation from law school, Ms. Fry was privileged to serve as judicial law clerk to several members of the Mississippi appellate courts–the Honorable Leslie Southwick, now a Circuit Judge of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, the Honorable James Thomas and the recently retired Mississippi Supreme Court Chief Justice Bill Waller. These clerkships provided Ms. Fry with a thorough grounding in the appellate process, as well as exposure to multiple areas of law.

After leaving the Court, Ms. Fry served as associate general counsel to the Mississippi Public Service Commission before moving into private practice. Ms. Fry’s private practice is focused primarily on appellate practice, as well as private and governmental entity defense in a variety of areas including Constitutional law, federal discrimination claims, Tort Claims Act law and general tort law. Ms. Fry has appeared before multiple federal and state appellate courts, both on briefing and at oral argument.
