Small Claims

In Mississippi, small claims are handled in the Justice Court for the county in which the claim arose. The damage caps in Justice Court are set at $3,500 for civil cases. This means that the most you can recover, for a civil claim in Justice Court, is $3,500 (plus attorneys fess in some instances). You do not need an attorney to prosecute or defend a case in Justice Court. With that being said, it is always in your best interest to have legal representation when appearing before a judge and arguing legal issues. Our law firm understands that our clients can not afford to pay a large amount of legal fees for a claim only worth $3,500, usually at most. For this reason, we offer significantly reduced flat fees for representing clients in civil Justice Court matters.
