Brandi R. Hamilton joined Rutherford Law in February of 2023. She focuses her practice on mass torts, civil rights, and employment cases. Brandi’s greatest passion is obtaining justice for those who are unable to pursue it for themselves. Prior to Rutherford Law, Brandi worked for one of Mississippi's top plaintiff firms.
Brandi attended Mississippi State University and earned her baccalaureate degree in history in 2012. On an academic scholarship, Brandi then attended Mississippi College School of Law and earned her law degree in 2015. While in law school, Brandi's academic focus was the intersection of the law and medicine and how they might work in tandem to benefit vulnerable populations. She interned at Mississippi's first medical-legal partnership between the Mississippi Center for Justice and the University of Mississippi Medical Center, where her work focused on the prevention of HIV/AIDS status-related discrimination, destigmatization, and community education. She also worked as a research assistant at MC Law's Bioethics and Health Law Center and interned at Mississippi's biggest publicly funded psychiatric hospital. Brandi earned a Certificate in Health Law in addition to her J.D.
