An Accomplished and Experienced Full Service Law Firm



 
Our areas of expertise have been developed and refined over several generations, allowing for an extremely focused understanding in each field and the vast areas we are capable of handling.

Business and Commercial Litigation and Corporate Practice

One of the most experienced and respected general practice law firms in Mississippi representing individuals and businesses in the acquisition, sale and/or merger of other businesses. Critical decisions revolve around the structure of stock or asset purchase deals. In any business transaction, use of contracts can help reduce potential risk when conducting business. You should be well advised before signing ANY document to avoid unforeseen problems and liabilities.

Personal Injury - Accident Cases

Work-related accidents, motor vehicle accidents, premises liability, wrongful death, animal bites, infliction of emotional distress, intentional misconduct, and negligence are some examples of personal injuries you may suffer as the result of someone else's negligence. We handle personal injury cases on a contingency fee, which means there is no attorney fee if we don't collect money for you.
 
 
 
 
 

Corporation, Limited Liability Company & Small Business Services

Corporation laws require articles of incorporation and these statutes operate under the assumption that each corporation will adopt bylaws to define the rights and obligations of officers, persons and groups within its structure.
 
We can advise you on the best choice of entity to serve your needs and which type of business entity may be preferable for tax reasons, liability reasons, and simplicity of operation as well as providing ongoing consultation in the proper handling of corporate matters.
