MSP Partner, Chris Jackson, has been appointed as Chairman of the Heart of the Community Foundation Board of Governors for 2022-2023. The Heart of the Community Foundation’s mission is to recognize individuals in Rome and Floyd County for their community service and recognize agencies whose missions promote heart related and humanitarian missions. Each year recipients are honored at “An Affair of the Heart”, a black-tie gala. The 37th annual event is planned for February 25, 2023, at the Taylor Estate. Proceeds raised by the event support heart healthy and humanitarian projects throughout Rome and Floyd County, including the donation of defibrillator devices to underserved locations, grants to other charitable organizations and the operation of the Wanda J. Witten Heart House, which provides a free place to stay for families of critically ill patients on the AdventHealth Redmond campus.

We have outgrown our Rome offices! MSP is pleased to announce the opening of the Oscar M. Smith Annex, which is adjacent to our Rome office in Bridgepoint Plaza. Named in memory of longtime firm partner Oscar Smith, this space includes two conferences rooms, a break room, patio and two additional attorney offices. One of the conference rooms is named for the Maddox family, which produced several lawyers associated with the firm, including Judge James D. Maddox. The other conference room is named for firm founder, Colonel William S. McHenry. We hope that this expansion will help us better serve the legal needs of Rome and northwest Georgia, as we have worked to do since 1899.
