About Me

Jim Wyly practices in the area of litigation. He handles a diverse litigation practice in Mississippi and Louisiana. As a litigator, he has defended a variety of tort claims, including serious personal injury, property damage, and wrongful death claims arising from transportation, professional liability (legal, medical, accountant, insurance and real estate agents/brokers), products liability, toxic exposure, maritime (Jones Act and general maritime law), construction (architects, engineers, and contractors) and insurance coverage disputes.

Mr. Wyly has extensive jury trial experience, successfully defending clients in both state and federal courts in Mississippi and Louisiana. Through an aggressive motion practice, he has summarily disposed of many serious liability claims, and through negotiation and effective use of ADR, he has compromised numerous personal injury and death claims.
