  1. Personal injury
    Car accident injuries, 18 wheeler wreck injuries, slip and falls, wrongful death, medical malpractice, and nursing home litigation.

    10 years

  2. Workers compensation
    I represent injured workers across the state. I also specialize in shipyard injuries as we have many shipyards across the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

    10 years

My practice focuses on personal injury and workers' compensation.   Within personal injury I handle  car accident cases, big rig/tractor trailer/18 wheeler cases, slip and fall/premises liability cases, and medical malpractice.  I pride myself on being able to skillfully handle complex personal injury litigation and being able to successfully try a case to a jury.  I also handle many workers' compensation cases for workers across the state of Mississippi.  I am located on the Gulf Coast so I handle shipyard injury claims aka Longshore and Harbor Workers Compensation claims before the Department of Labor.

Mr. Franco goes above & beyond
We hired Mr. Franco to represent my husband and he went above and beyond his duties, to make sure we were taken care of. We hired an attorney & gained a life long friend.

Thorough and tenacious
I would heartily recommend Jonathan Franco as an attorney. Working with Jonathan, my wife and I found him to be thorough and tenacious, both important qualities in an attorney. Jonathan took point in our case that had languished in the system, and was successful in pushing it to resolution, and a favorable one at that. We were so pleased that, if we find ourselves in need of a legal advocate in the future, Jonathan Franco is the obvious choice for us.

Wonderfully skilled and compassionate lawyer
Jonathon is a very skilled lawyer who worked with us to get a good settlement on my injury case. He was a true Southern gentlemen in dealing with us old people, as well as our young grandchildren who were involved in our case. Jonathon was the first lawyer that responded to our call for help and we were so glad he was the one. Through the wait for our case to come up Jonathon was patient, caring, and professional. He returned calls immediately and was always so nice about explaining things.
