You want Devin Whitt as your attorney!
I made a phone call to Devin Whitt for his legal assistance during my most absolute lowest point and he agreed to meet with me in his office the same day for a free consult. Mr. Whitt has been a huge lifesaver! He pulled me out of trouble and came through for me with a clean slate. Mr. Whitt was upfront, listened and cared about my situation. He did tailor my needs to our contract agreement and the case was settled in a matter of months. I would definitely recommend Mr. Devin Whitt to anyone in need of a reliable attorney & hire him once again in the future.

Devin FAUGHT for MY rights beginning to end and WE WON!!!
There is NOT enough space on Google for me to express my satisfaction with Devin Whitt! NOT ONLY is he a good person and genuinely nice individual BUT Devin is hands down THE BEST criminal defense attorney that I know of in the greater Jackson MS area. Devin is extremely knowledgeable, efficient and accessible and he is as HONEST as they come!!! If you need legal representation MY ADVICE is to consult with Devin before you retain any other attorney to represent you! Retaining DEVIN WHITT was one of the BEST decisions that I have made in a long time! He went to work for me and got me results in my case based on the law! I know Devin will do the exact same for you as he did for me BECAUSE that's how he operates! HE KNOWS THE LAW - CALL DEVIN FIRST!!!

Professional "Big Brother" Attorney
Prior the hiring him, Devon Whitt came highly recommended from personal sources. Although I had no idea of what to expect while going through a divorce, Mr. Whitt provided me with an overwhelming sense of comfort during our first meeting that my case, as well as my overall best interest, was in the hands of a knowledgeable, empathetic, and committed individual. For someone like myself who has many a friend that practice law and who encounters numerous attorneys in my professional field, I can honestly state that I have not met a more dedicated, organized, efficient, and caring individual in the law profession. Not only did Mr. Whitt keep me consistently updated when any new information arose in my case, he periodically checked in with me during the lull periods of the process simply out of kindness. At absolutely no point during the process did I have a question or concern that was not answered within a day (and typically within hours). As I titled this review, Mr. Whitt was like a professional "big brother" whose blend of legal expertise and legitimate care for me as not only a client, but a person, is unparalleled by any other attorney I know or have heard about. In summary, I am of the opinion that you could not find a better attorney and genuinely admirable person to represent you. Thank you, Devin.

Efficiency, dedication and knowledge
Mr. Whitt knows how to apply the knowledge emphatically and efficiently. He utilizes his vast experience and applies to individual cases while providing excellent customer service. He listens actively and ensures the customer is satisfied before moving on. He also takes time to explain the processes related to the case so it becomes less intimidating. Mr. Whitt demonstrates dedication and pride in his work. My divorce case was handled efficiently while my wishes/opinions were taken into consideration. As the end result, the case was completed without having to go to the court and parties reaching out the most satisfactory agreement in the given situation.

Great attorney!
Devin did an excellent job in my case. He was able to get my case settled with more than I even expected! When I needed to get in contact with him, he was always available. Devin is a hard worker and a very knowledgeable attorney. I would highly recommend him to any of my associates for legal matters due to his consistency in putting his clients first.

Tenaciously committed to his clients
Devin Whitt came highly recommended from a mutual business associate. I was new to the state of Mississippi and I didn't have many friends at the time. The divorce request from my ex-wife caught me off guard and I was an emotional wreck. To say that I could not focus on the matter is an understatement. Devin was the focus I needed and his counsel and guidance was instrumental to me. Collectively, we established what were the goals I wanted to achieve AFTER the divorce was finalized. I am pleased to say that EVERY goal we established was met upon completion of the process. Devin ensured I was kept abreast with the status of the proceedings and always presented the reality of the situation divorced of my emotions. Devin's tenacity to achieve my goals was only surpassed by his compassion and understanding of my situation as a person. Suffice it to say that I would recommend Devin Whitt as an attorney to anyone without hesitation or reservation.

Great, Hard-working Attorney!
Devin has assisted me in two cases as my family law attorney. I have been please with the outcome of both cases. Throughout those difficult times, Devin made me feel comfortable with speaking with him about any concerns I had, always making himself available and promptly returning any voicemails. Devin was honest, upfront with informing me of all possible outcomes and worked hard with making my stressful situation manageable. In 2012, Devin was able to keep my son out of a home filled with alcohol and drug abuse and I was given full custody of my son with no visitation which put me at so much ease to not have my son be forced into that lifestyle. Im so thankful for Devin for what he did for me, I felt that he actually cared about the well being of my child. Recently, Devin assisted me with my child support case with my daughter, it was a long journey but with Devin's professionalism, skills, and determination to deliver what I wanted yet be fair to her father, we were able to reach an agreement that I was happy with. Devin Whitt is a great attorney that really enjoys what he does with helping his clients. If I ever meet someone who needs an attorney in his profession, Devin Whitt would me my #1 recommendation!

Completely Satisfied with Results
I had a very complex family case. Devin listened to me, researched the various components of my case, and informed me of all of my options. He allowed me to make the decision that was most comfortable for me and proceeded with my preferred course of action. He was straight-forward, but exhibited understanding and flexibility. If the occasion arose, I would use him again.

Excellent Attorney - Highly Knowledgeable, Diligent, Thorough, and Honest
Devin Whitt is incredibly good at what he does. When my ex served me with custody papers, I called everybody I could find. Devin answered my call - the first time - and answered every question I had. He was very upfront with me through the entire process. He told me what to expect and was a step ahead of my ex at every turn. Devin never backed down no matter what my ex tried to throw. In the end, I kept custody and my ex got supervised visitation. I HIGHLY recommend Devin and honestly I can't stress that HIGHLY enough. He is awesome!

If you need an excellent and honest lawyer, Mr. Whitt is your man!!!
After receiving my expungement papers, I am nothing less than awestruck by Mr. Whitt's abilities. I had been accepted into nursing school, and my record from OVER 18 years ago was preventing me from being able to attend the required clinic rotations. My situation hung over my head and was preventing me from moving forward in my life and career. I did a google search for expungement lawyers and Mr. Whitt's website was one of the first I saw. I picked him on a blind whim, and I AM SO GLAD I DID. He answered my first call at 9:30 in the EVENING on a SUNDAY!!! Mr. Whitt was extremely honest with me from the start, and explained everything I would need to know in that first phone call. He rearranged his schedule and was able to meet me with me the NEXT DAY because I was so distraught. Mr. Whitt was prompt to return every email or phone call I made to him through-out the entire process. I attribute the positive outcome of my expungement entirely to Mr. Whitt's legal skills, excellent communication skills, and professionalism. This was the BEST investment I've made for my future, and was money well spent. Thanks to Mr. Whitt I can now move forward with my nursing career!! I can say with confidence, that if anyone needs this kind of legal service Mr. Whitt should be at the top of your list.

I highly recommend Devin Whitt as your divorce attorney!

A+++ Devin Whitt
Devin showed great knowledge and compassion throughout my case. He stayed on top of issues and went over and beyond the call of his duty. Devin took my case as if it was his own. I would recommend Devin to anyone looking for an attorney that will fight for what is right and just.
Posted by Amy | April 25, 2014
The most stellar attorney in Ridgeland, especially when you need someone who won't back down....
Devin worked on my child support case and was extremely knowledgeable and compassionate. He was thorough and looked after my interests and was able to fix my problem. He will not back down and fights to protect what is most important - in my case it was keeping custody of my children, whose father is a lawyer. He was most effective in fighting for me, yet remaining civil and professional. Kept the drama out of my life. I can assure you he will fight for justice for your issue!

Top Notch
My former experience with attorneys was not good, until I met with Mr. Whitt. It was out of desperation that I needed good representation, someone who cared about me and not just another case to line their pocket books. Michael Whitt was not only professional in all aspects, but he was caring, thoughtful and worked hard to help me. You can not do better than Mr. Whitt and I highly recommend his services!
