Brunini Law Firm congratulates Matt Allen for receiving his Ph.D in Criminal Justice from the University of Southern Mississippi. He has practiced law with the firm since 2005.
A Ph.D in criminal justice requires years of in-depth study and knowledge of all facets of the criminal justice system, from law enforcement to courts to corrections, as well as a dissertation on a chosen topic of focus. Matt’s dissertation was entitled Obstacles to the Implementation of Criminal Justice Reform, and it focused on barriers to the implementation of reform legislation that has already been enacted into state law by the Mississippi State Legislature.
“Matt is a super bright, hard-working attorney who holds strong and honorable convictions about making his community a better place to live and work,” said Cody Bailey, Department Chairman. “He will no doubt use his doctorate in criminal justice to that end, and we look forward to seeing all the good he will accomplish.”
Prior to joining Brunini Law Firm, Allen clerked for the Honorable William H. Barbour, Jr. of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi.
