About Me

Garner grew up in Hazlehurst, Mississippi, before moving to Jackson, Mississippi, to work as an attorney.  Although he continues to live in Jackson and is active in the Jackson Metro area community, Garner practices law throughout Mississippi.  With experience on both the defense and plaintiff's side, Garner has developed extensive legal experience to effectively represent his clients in order to maximize their return on cases.

Garner and his wife, Molly, are the proud parents of two sons, Charlie and Baylor.  Garner enjoys sporting events, exercising, hunting, and spending time with family and friends.  Garner and his family are members of Christ United Methodist Church in Jackson where he is also active in the youth ministry leadership.
