I have practiced as a litigator in the court room for over 18 years.   I have experience in several areas of law.  I practice in the areas of Family Law (Divorce, Custody, Child Support, Guardianship, Termination of Parental Rights, and Adoption), Criminal Defense, Social Security Disability, Wills and Estates (Trusts), and Immigration Law (Asylum, Citizenship, Naturalization, DACA (Deferred Action for Children Arrivals), Deportation Defense, Family Petitions for Relatives, and U-Visas for Victims of Crime in the United States).  I practice on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi (Harrison, Hancock, and Jackson Counties) including the counties of Pearl River, Stone, and George.

At the McAlister Law Firm, I take the time to understand each distinctive matter presented to me by a client in need of assistance.  I make certain that my clients understand their options and can make informed decisions regarding the progress of their case.  I represent clients both legally and in a personal manner - whether it is a high stakes divorce, or a family estate plan.
