MAJ's MISSION STATEMENT


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.

What we do is more important now than ever before because the drug and oil industries, big insurance companies and other large corporations dominate our political process -- and thus, people cannot depend on the political system to hold corporations accountable.

When corporations and their CEOs act irresponsibly by delaying or refusing to pay fair and just insurance claims, producing unsafe products, polluting our environment or swindling their employees and shareholders, the only place where Americans can hold them accountable is in our courts.

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.
