John and his staff are in the Top 95% of Mississippi Legal Teams. He keeps you informed through the whole process, and always kept my best interest his top priority!! I would highly recommend him to anyone needing legal services!

Caring, informed, knowledgeable, representation. Total opposite of an insurance representative, from another state, whose insured was responsible for an automobile accident that myself and my husband were involved in. John was recommended by a close friend of mine, and upon our initial meeting I left there knowing all aspects would be handled with great professionalism and concern for the well being of myself and my husband!

John is the type of guy you want on your side. His experience and successes in the courtroom all come from his innate way to connect with his clients. He avidly prepares for his cases. He is fighting for you! He is not afraid to ask the tough questions, rather, he gets right to them. He is not a lawyer to "beat around the bush" and I am so glad that I know he will be on the other side of a phone call if I need him.

John really cares about me. He took the time to listen to what was going on; to hear my experience. Even though I was involved in a class action, he never made me feel like a number. He always gave it to me straight and fair. Other lawyers had passed on getting involved with this case because of the unlikelihood that my case would prevail. John took the case and fought, not months, but years and won!

I endorse this lawyer. I have tried cases with and against John. He is not afraid to take and try a hard case in order to obtain justice for his clients. This attitude has led to multiple large verdicts for his clients. He is also much better at negotiating settlements than most lawyers. There are many imposters in the realm of personal injury law. John is the real deal.

As a defense attorney I have had several cases opposing John and have always found him to be honest and straightforward. It is always a pleasure working on cases with him. It is also very clear to me that John truly believes in his clients and cares about the results of a lawsuit for the client, not himself.
