Through his work with the Mississippi Coalition Against Domestic Violence, attorney Brandon Jones is advocating changes to divorce laws in Mississippi that would make it easier for victims to divorce abusers.

Of current divorce laws, Jones said, “. . .what we are talking about is a system that is being manipulated. Abusers know the law, and they use it. Any law that would place a family in this type of crisis and not give them an escape hatch and reasonable way out is not just.”

Jones was interviewed as part of thisĀ story on the developing situation by the Clarion-Ledger.
