Practice areas
  1. Criminal defense
    30%
    In 2018, I was one of only two attorneys selected by my peers as a Rising Star in Criminal Defense for the entire State of Mississippi. As a trial lawyer, I live for the courtroom and protecting the rights of my clients.

  2. Violent crime
    30%
    Violent crimes come with the harshest penalties (day-for-day sentences). At our firm, we dedicate a team of legal professionals, investigators, and industry experts to ensure that we and our clients stay a step ahead.

  3. Expungement
    15%
    Each week, our office handles dozens of expungements across the State of Mississippi, making sure that records are cleared and people are able to get better jobs and a clean slate.

  4. Personal injury
    15%
    We're trial lawyers, which means that we live for the courtroom. Too often, attorneys promise quick settlements. Our take is that as attorneys, our mission is to fight for our clients, especially if that means arguing a case before a jury.

  5. DUI and DWI
    10%
    Too often, people charged with DUIs think that they can handle their case themselves, but that is the worst mistake you can make. By getting us involved early, we can work on your case to make sure that your rights are protected.

Attorney Arthur Calderón proudly serves clients throughout Bolivar County and all of Mississippi. With years of experience serving both companies and individuals, he is dedicated to using his knowledge and skill to fight for the rights and best interests of all of his clients.

Great choice!
I hired Mr. Calderon to represent me in a criminal matter. Of all the lawyers I talked to He was the only one who seemed to listen and who seemed to be compassionate. I found out later he's also very creative and witty. His courtroom skills are one of a kind. You cannot go wrong with Arthur. He's smart, ethical and no attorney will out work him.
