I have known Jim for about 13 years. In my opinion he is one of the best criminal defense attorneys in central Mississippi. When my clients have criminal issues, I refer them to Jim.

Jim is a good lawyer. I've known him for over 20 years. He was an ADA and is now in private practice. He does a good job in aggressively representing his clients.
