About John D. Giddens Law Firm

Since 1999, Giddens Law Firm has been fighting hard on the behalf of injury victims throughout Mississippi. As part of our commitment to our clients, we always try to respond as quickly and carefully as possible to your legal needs. We temper the speed of our service with the need to be thorough. We don’t want just to take care of your legal needs quickly, we want to take care of them correctly. We promise to try to get you the results you need and deserve. This can only be accomplished by having experienced, dedicated legal professionals on your side.

Many times people do not seek the guidance of an attorney for fear that doing so would be too expensive and complicated. At Giddens Law Firm, we alleviate those fears right away. Your first consultation is always free. During that first meeting, you will find out whether your problem requires the assistance of an attorney and what we can do to help. Fees and costs are discussed upfront. There is no “guessing” as to what your fee might be for our services and often our cases are taken on contingency, meaning there is no fee or expense to you until we collect on your behalf.

When you enter our office you will know that our attorneys and other staff members genuinely care about you and your legal concerns. If we cannot give your case the attention it deserves we will tell you so. We do not take cases unless we feel we can devote the resources necessary to attend to them properly.

How to Choose a Personal Injury Law Firm?

Choosing a personal injury lawyer for your case can be a formidable task, especially if you’ve never hired an attorney before. With so many to choose from, how do you know which personal injury lawyer works best for your case?

When choosing a lawyer for your injury claim, there are specific factors you should be looking at when choosing an accident lawyer:

  • Examine the track record – Take a look at their case results. Do they have a successful track record in cases similar to yours? For example, Giddens Law Firm has achieved multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements for victims of car accidents, truck accidents, medical malpractice, product liability, and much more.
  • Review their credentials – Check the lawyer’s credentials to see how long they’ve been practicing, where they are licensed, and if they are members of any legal organizations. Many times, the lawyer’s bio states any recognitions they may have received from peer-reviewed legal organizations, such as Super Lawyers.
  • Read the reviews – Hearing the experience of a former client can give you an idea of how the lawyer works and communications. But don’t just check Google! Remember to look at other review websites such as Avvo and Martindale-Hubbell to get a full picture of how
  • Ask questions – Most personal injury lawyers offer a free initial consultation. During this first meeting, take the time to learn about your attorney and how they can benefit your case. Ask them important questions such as, “Have you handled many cases like this one before?” and “What is your philosophy to representing a case?” Ask about their credentials to make sure they have the experience needed for your case.
  • Understand the fee – Finally, make sure you understand the fee arrangement before hiring an attorney. Most personal injury firms work on a contingency basis. What this means is you do not pay the attorney’s fee up front; instead, once your case is settled, the lawyer will take a small percentage of the settlement for your fee. However, if your case is not successful, you do not owe a fee.
