DALLAS, Feb. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Respected Family Law attorney Jeffrey O. Anderson, a partner in the Dallas office of McCurley Orsinger McCurley Nelson & Downing, L.L.P., has been named general counsel of the not-for-profit Kids Matter International.
Kids Matter International, headquartered in Southlake, Texas, has served the needs of abused, displaced and disadvantaged children around the world since 2006.
"My family and I have been longtime supporters of KMI, and we have done a fair amount of volunteer work with them," says Mr. Anderson. "That exposure has been infectious; you just want to do more. So when I was asked if I would consider becoming general counsel, there was no way I could resist the opportunity to work with some of the kindest people I've ever met, while also helping children. I will, of course, continue as a partner at McCurley Orsinger, but I'm excited about serving our community with KMI."
KMI Chairman Coye Conner Jr. welcomed Mr. Anderson's decision to join KMI.
"We are very pleased that Jeff has accepted the invitation to join us as our general counsel," Mr. Conner says. "He is an outstanding attorney who has always put the welfare of children first in his Family Law practice. We knew we needed that mindset in our general counsel."
