I've been representing people (not large companies) my entire career. No single client is responsible for more than 10% of my income. I become my clients' "family lawyer" because I care about them and their problems. My clients trust me in doing what's best for them. That's why many of my clients are either repeat clients or are referred to me from present and former clients.
I practice state-wide. I try cases in both state and federal courts. I recently co-Authored the book Divorce in Mississippi. It is written for people - NOT lawyers - to give real people real answers to real problems and to de-mystify the divorce process. It is available for purchase at Amazon.com.
I grew up in a small town in North Mississippi with small-town values instilled in me. I treat others with respect. Clients pay me their hard-earned money to represent them and to assess objectively the strengths and weaknesses of their cases. I advise clients according to the facts and the law. In short, I tell clients the truth about their case so that my clients can make an informed decision about their case. I DON'T tell clients only what I think they want to hear. I tell them the truth; that way I can sleep at night knowing that I'm not getting ahead at my clients' expense.

Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
There are few lawyers that will come to court as well prepared as Jon Powell. He works very hard to anticipate any argument that can possibly be asserted by the other side. I have worked with him on several trials and have always been impressed with how well he handles himself in the courtroom. I endorse this lawyer.
