About the Mississippi Association for Justice

 As attorneys, we work to make sure any person who is injured by the misconduct and negligence of others can get justice in the courtroom, even when taking on the most powerful interests.

We are committed to strengthening the civil justice system so that deserving individuals can get justice and wrongdoers are held accountable.  We oppose efforts to weaken basic legal protections and further stack the deck against average Mississippians.  All Americans benefit when individuals represented by attorneys have a fair chance to get justice through our civil justice system.
