Anna Rush is a Hattiesburg native and is the Founding Partner of Rush Law Firm. She graduated from Mississippi State University then attended The University of Mississippi for law school. From there she worked in Washington D.C., then came back home to Hattiesburg to be closer to family. She did not know she would start her own firm when she got home, but she is so happy she did and happy to be back in Hattiesburg!

Rush Law Firm specializes in practices such as divorce and family law, litigation, criminal law, and business formation. I got to sit down and chat with Anna to get to know more about her, her firm, and her local favorites.

 Tell us how and why you started your business here.

After working for other people, I decided to give working for myself a try. Looking back it was on a bit of a whim, but it has been a blessing ever since. I wanted to set out to do a women owned business that was just as much about my team as it was taking care of the clients. We value family in our office. Starting a women owned business, I wanted to make sure family was at the forefront not just for the clients but for the staff as well.
