Q&A
  • What types of clients do you represent?

    I most frequently represent corporate entities with manufacturing concerns, many of whom are Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 companies.

  • What do you see on the horizon of your area of practice?

    Over the years, the law has changed for the better in Mississippi. We are not seeing nearly as many lawsuits. At one time I had an inventory of 20-30,000 active cases. We have a better handle over the individual cases now, and thus a greater accountability to the client. Now our clients require more information on the individual cases.
