The law firm of Funderburg, Sessums & Peterson, PLLC is a small Jackson, Mississippi firm located in the historic Belhaven neighborhood area. The firm has obtained the highest possible rating for legal ability and ethical standards. The practice areas of the firm primarily focus on representing injured people whether the injuries result from automobile accidents, work accidents, premises liability and/or product liability cases. The firm also is extremely active in bad faith cases of all types many of which stem from workers’ compensation cases.
Although the members do handle all types of personal injury cases, over the years, the firm has developed a large volume of workers’ compensation cases. This volume enables the members to interact with the workers’ compensation judges, commissioners and staff of the Commission almost on a daily basis. Located just minutes from the Workers’ Compensation Commission, the members have the ability to efficiently manage the volume of workers’ compensation cases they have. The members are frequent seminar speakers in the area of workers’ compensation and also serve on the Advisory Council of the Workers’ Compensation Commission as well as on the Workers’ Compensation Commission’s Educational Committee.
Each of the equity members of the firm began their law practice with large defense firms. The members have over 60 combined years of experience in the personal injury field representing both plaintiffs and defendants. The defense background of the members provides a unique perspective which we believe sets us apart from other personal injury firms. As an example, having defended cases in the past, the members have an understanding of defense strategies simply based on past experiences and it has served the firms’ clients well over the years.
Our philosophy is to zealously represent each of our clients to the best of our ability while maintaining the highest of ethical standards. We have worked hard to develop trust within the legal community and the trust of our clients. We provide personal service to each of our clients via communication with the attorney handling the case.
