There is no substitute for proven expertise when it comes to challenging legal issues. Our attorneys have deep legal knowledge and experience, nationwide connections, and a client-first approach that ensures our clients consistently receive the highest standard of service.
Hiring legal counsel is not something the average consumer does every day. In fact, there may only be a few times in your life that you need to work with a lawyer. When that time comes, it is important to be informed about the person you hire to represent you.
At Blackmon Carr, we are committed to representing clients with vigorous advocacy. Whether you have been seriously injured, need assistance with a disability claim or are facing criminal charges, we are here to provide the legal assistance you need.
Our attorneys are widely recognized as among the best in their respective fields by independent third parties, and many have achieved prestigious positions in industry, the legal community and public service.
We distinguish ourselves not by the size of our Firm, but by our passion for client service. We understand that clients have numerous alternatives when it comes to legal services and that we have to earn your business and referrals each and every day.
As our clients have grown, so has our Firm and the breadth of our practice. We regularly assist our clients in executing their business goals in Mississippi and throughout the United States.
While we are a small-town firm, we have the technical abilities, experience and know-how to take on complicated cases. We are known throughout the entire state of Mississippi and Georgia for our legal abilities. Our attorneys will invest the time and resources necessary to make sure you are vigorously represented, while providing the personalized and compassionate representation you deserve.
