Criminal Justice Reform Act

Phil Bryant has signed the Criminal Justice Reform Act in Mississippi. The act takes effect on July 1, 2019, and includes numerous changes. Some of the changes include the addition of the term “intervention” courts, which will allow the expansion and usage of mental-health courts or courts geared explicitly to helping military veterans.

Getting Your Personal Injury Medical Records & Bills

Medical Records

Why should you help your personal injury attorney get your medical records and bills? Medical records and billing statements are a critical piece of any personal injury case in Mississippi.

Do lawyers really act like Saul?

Saul - Better Call Saul

Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul have become pop culture phenomenon’s on Netflix.  One of the characters is the sleazy money hungry lawyer called Saul.  He wears the car salesman suit and fits the obnoxious mold that we expect attorneys to have.  He even has this endearing side and line of ethics that he will not cross, although he always tries to figure out a way to get what he wants without getting himself in trouble.   As a lawyer, I can appreciate why people have stereotyped us, and why the show portrays Saul that way.  The purpose of this blog is...

Mental Stress Injury And Workers Comp?

Mental Stress

I think most of the working class in Hinds or Rankin County in Mississippi can admit that they usually feel some type of mental health stress at their job. You may wonder: How much stress is normal? How much should I tolerate? Is it affecting other areas in my life? Can stress lead to anxiety and depression? Can I file a workers' compensation claim in Mississippi for psychological issues? Emotional and mental stress injuries in a Mississippi workers compensation case can be more difficult to prove and sometimes harder to receive compensation for. The reason being is that it can be tricky to...

“You don’t know what it’s like”

What it's like

“You don’t know what it’s like” I hear this all the time. You’re right. I do not know what it is like to be severely injured at work, what it is like to lose everything I own because I was hurt at work, not being able to get treatment because my employer and its insurance carrier won’t pay for it, not receiving a paycheck while I am off of work, and not being able to feed my family. But I will promise you this, it wears on my heart to know clients we represent are going through this. This is what I am here...

Moms are Superheroes

Super Mom

Are you are a working mom? Do you have one or multiple children? Being a mom that works is hard especially when you have multiple children. Being a working mom in Mississippi doesn’t mean you’re made of money either. In fact, Mississippi is the 2nd lowest paid state. Daycare alone can take up a check without even thinking twice about it. What can you do? You have to be paid to work right? Sometimes it doesn’t even feel like it is worth having a job. I can all too well relate this. Being a mom is probably the most demanding job...
