Practice Areas

Civil Litigation

Civil Litigation, trial work, is a necessary means at times to resolve the dispute between parties. Many people think of litigation only when someone files a suit over a personal injury case. This is far from the truth. Civil litigation includes breaches of contract, work discrimination, insurance disputes, EEOC claims, wrongful termination, divorces, and other legal issues that parties just cannot resolve themselves.

At Ware Law Firm, PLLC my focus is civil litigation. Much of what I do is personal injury; however, I also cover other areas of litigation. My firm realizes that this is not a pleasant experience for you. Again, litigation stems from the fact that you and another party just could not resolve the matter yourselves.

Bankruptcy

The economy has everybody worried. Many people are losing their jobs and are unable to find work. Credit card debt is growing and the minimum payments are rising. You may have medical bills which you just cannot pay, garnishment of your income, creditors are calling you at work and home. Your home or car is in jeopardy.

Bankruptcy is not the end of the world; instead, it is a means to which to start again. I devote a great deal of our practice to bankruptcy.

Workers Compensation

In Mississippi, workers compensation is required if a business has at least five employees. Injuries at work can cause devastating losses and create precarious situations at work and at home. After you are an injury on the job, the employer or its insurance company is to provide medical benefits for you. After missing so many days of work, the company is required to pay you benefits referred to as TTD (temporary total benefits). You should keep receiving benefits as long as a doctor requires you to stay home. 

Upon return to work, the company should give you your exact job back, or -if your injuries were disabling - provide a job modified to your specific needs. If the company cannot provide you a job, it must keep paying you. After medical treatment has ended, you may be entitled to a lump sum amount or maybe even further medical benefits.

I want to see you get the medical attention you deserve and make sure you are getting what you are entitled with the benefits of workers compensation. If you need help, contact my office.

Criminal Law

One thing is always certain; being charged with a crime is a serious matter. Whether it is a misdemeanor or a felony, having a criminal record can affect the rest of your life. You should always consult with a lawyer when charged with a crime.

As an individual, you have many constitutional and statutory rights. You have the right to know what evidence the prosecutor or police have against you. Getting a lawyer involved early is the best way to ensure your rights are not violated. If you have been charged with any crime, contact my office and put our experience and knowledge to work for you.
