We are a law firm practicing primarlly in the areas of family law and criminal defense. We focus on individual service. We actively litigate our cases and are in court somewhere almost every day. We are licensed to practice in every court in the state of Mississippi and in the United States Court of Appeals. We are certified Guardians Ad Litem to represent the interests of children in the courts. Members of the Family Law Section of the Mississippi Bar Association and the Criminal Justice Section of the American Bar Association.

In 2011 in Harrison and Jackson counties in Mississippi, only 14 felony cases went to trial, and only two cases of these cases resulted in acquittals of the defendants. In 2012, our firm has taken one felony case to trial and we won an acquittal for our client in that case.

We firmly believe in the principle that the best interest of the child should determine issues of child custody and visitation, not the gender of the parent. We vehemently defend the rights of fathers to have equal rights to custody and we represent a large number of male clients who have been awarded custody of their children.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
