Jonathan M. Barlow
Of Counsel – Mississippi
“My life is what it is because of a tremendous family unit and wonderful legal representation. If I had not been blessed with the lawyers who represented me as an infant, I may never have been around to see where I would wind up as an adult. From the beginning, I understood the fickle nature of life. I also understood the influence attorneys – good or bad – have on their clients’ lives. I made it my focus to protect those with no voice, the outcasts, and those nobody else cared about. I try to treat every single client the way I would want my mother treated by an attorney, even if some tough love is involved. I care about my clients, and I will fight for my clients to the bitter end.”
