Silence is Golden

Whether you’ve been accused of a crime or been hurt in a car wreck, one thing remains the same: DO NOT TALK! Police, prosecutors, and insurance companies will use what you say to hurt you. They will twist your words and try to take advantage of you. Let me do all the talking for you, because I know how their systems and games work. I will remind them of your rights.

Locals Know

If you are looking for the best restaurants, a reputable doctor, or directions around town, you always ask a local. I provide the local insight needed to give you the best chance of a favorable result. The right lawyer can make all the difference. If you’ve been accused of a crime or injured in Hernando, Southaven, or DeSoto County Mississippi, I can give you the direction you need.
