I've been representing people (not large companies) my entire career.  No single client is responsible for more than 10% of my income.  I become my clients' "family lawyer" because I care about them and their problems.  My clients trust me in doing what's best for them.  That's why many of my clients are either repeat clients or are referred to me from present and former clients. 


I practice state-wide. I try cases in both state and federal courts.  I co-Authored the book Divorce in Mississippi.  It is written for people - NOT lawyers - to give real people real answers to real problems and to de-mystify the divorce process.  It is available for purchase by contacting my office. 


I grew up in a small town in North Mississippi with small-town values instilled in me.  I treat others with respect.  Clients pay me their hard-earned money to represent them and to assess objectively the strengths and weaknesses of their cases.  I advise clients according to the facts and the law.  In short, I tell clients the truth about their case so that my clients can make an informed decision about their case.  I DON'T tell clients only what I think they want to hear - I tell my client the truth in giving them an honest assessment of their case.

From the first consultation, Mr. Powell (and staff) was attentive to MY needs and was a blessing throughout the entire divorce process. He worked WITH me and not just FOR me keeping my best interest in mind. Very knowledgeable, going the extra mile to make my journey as pleasant as possible. Very cost efficient in discussing options on the front end so I always knew what to expect.

Custody issue
I recently found myself inside of a custody issue involving my 16 year old daughter. I decided to hire Mr. Powell and I am truly glad that I did! Needless to say we won! Mr. Powell handled my case with a high professionalism and was very friendly! He and his wife rock!

Straight Forward - Extremely Knowledgeable - Real Estate Issue
I spoke with Mr. Powell in reference to a real estate issue. The matter at hand caused me a significant amount of stress and anxiety. He utilized his expertise, tact, and knowledge of the law to guide me into the best resolution that I could have. Overall, I felt calm, cool and collected after speaking with him. I highly recommend him to others.

Great Family Law Attorney
Jon Powell has now represented me on three different occasions, and each time they have come out favorable for me and my children. He pays great attention to detail and will always advise you as to your best interest, even if you don't like what he has to say. He fights for your legal rights, knows the law, practices morally, and when an emergency comes up, he deals with it immediately no matter what it takes. I have and will continue to put my trust in Mr. Powell for all my family law matters. Thank you Jon for everything you have done and continue to do for us. Clients, listen to what the man says, if he says do or don't do something regarding your case, DO IT!! You are paying him to do the work and advise you on how to strengthen your case.

Very good attorney for child custody by grandparents. Case Won.
Child custody by grandparents, very good attorney. You must provide him with sound evidence. Our case was won, with us being grandparents, and considered a third party. He worked very hard for us. Very knowledgeable and professional. We would recommend him highly. Fees seemed high but well worth it.

Great consultation. Sharp, specific, thorough.
I called Jon to consult regarding my inheritance of some real estate in common with an aunt and an uncle. Jon was incredibly informative and gave exactly what I needed to know, and very quickly to boot. 10/10 will use again!

Great help
Jon, was great to have as my divorce attorney. He never tried to milk me for more money, on the contrary he would let me know when things would be a waste of money. I would recommend him 100 percent.

Have worked with Jon on clients and personally
It was a lenghy divorce with a lot of unecessary babble between the two sides. Jon has a great filter for what matters and what doesn't. There was a lot of mudslinging when we went to court but jon made the reality of our marriage come through very quickly. He was very honest (and conservative) during the process. So when I heart optimistic feedback I knew it was real.

When it comes to legal matters, Jon Powell is who I put my trust in.
Jon has handled several legal matters for myself and/or business. He has reviewed contracts for my business, handled my Last Will and Testament and also real estate matters. In each instance I feel he truly puts every ounce of knowledge and attention to even the smallest of details. He is very trustworthy, knowledgable & caring. I've sought legal advice from other attorneys and even worked for some. Jon Powell is the attorney I put my trust in.

A lawyer that goes above and beyond to get the job done.
Jon Powell is a very caring and trustworthy attorney. I had a very difficult divorce involving children, and being a dedicated husband and father himself, he fought very hard for me and my children with compassion and integrity. Anyone who has been through a divorce knows how devastating this can be, especially when there are children to be considered. Jon listened intently to not only my concerns, but my childres's as well as my father's, and advised us every step of the way. My case was battle after battle fought in and out of court, the worst of which was after the divorce was final. Jon's knowledge and expertise of family law is unsurpassed, and this was key in the very satisfactory outcome of my case. I actually chose Jon after an Internet search with no prior knowledge and nothing to go on. He spoke to me right away, and after our first meeting, I knew I had made the right choice. Jon will fight hard for you with integrity and is very passionate about what he does. I would highly recommend him as anyone's first choice when needing protection in any situation dealing with family law. Thanks Jon!
