Mark is the best attorney that I have ever worked with. He was well organized, and wasn’t afraid to stick up for my rights. He was hired on in the middle of my very difficult divorce case, and picked it right up with ease. He knew exactly what needed to be done, and was exceptional at doing his job, and communicating the steps I needed to take.
He went to bat for me numerous times with the judge and stood up to the opposing counsel on important issues. . Mark is very ethical, extremely knowledgeable about family law, and has been most responsive to our concerns on an ongoing basis.
Additionally, he was very accessible when I had any questions. If you are looking for the best, I highly recommend Mark.

I was extremely lucky to find Mark Chinn (Chinn and Associates in Jackson, Mississippi), after suffering through eighteen months of ZERO progress with a "bargain lawyer". During my initial meeting with Mr. Chinn, he spent all the time necessary to get a thorough understanding of my case. He described various ways to immediately begin seeking a favorable resolution. He also presented different pricing options, including the option to pay an all-inclusive fee upfront. That gave me substantial control over my legal expenses... I didn't have to worry about the uncertainty of "pay as you go" pricing.
Mr. Chinn's staff is exceptional. Everyone is highly knowledgeable, yet attentive and responsive to the clients' needs. The entire staff, including Mr. Chinn, are available at all hours to respond to unexpected or emergency developments. They kept me well informed of each and every aspect of my case.
In summary, most of the time there are no "do-overs" or "second-chances" in court. Chinn and Associates achieved a successful outcome in my case, the very first time. That's the REAL bargain!

I endorse this lawyer. I have known Attorney Mark Chinn for more than 10 years. He is a superb attorney, who also is devoted to his family, his church, and his community. Intelligent, knowledgeable about the law, well prepared and hard working, Mark cares about his clients and their cases. He demonstrates this in how he and his staff treat their clients during their cases and how he advocates for then with "the heart of a lion".
