The Local Choice for the Mississippi Gulf Coast and all of South Mississippi

Having offices in Gulfport and Hattiesburg, Mississippi, we are deeply entwined with our local communities and surrounding areas. Most of our attorneys and staff were born and raised here, and most enjoy a high degree of involvement in local charitable, religious, public and civic organizations.

With 12 attorneys, we are one of the largest firms serving the Mississippi Gulf Coast and South Mississippi. We are large enough to handle highly involved, complex legal matters, but we are small enough to make sure each client receives personalized, responsive and friendly service and attention.

25 Years Carrying a Tradition of Excellence

Dukes, Dukes, Keating & Faneca, P.A. was founded in 1983 by William F. Dukes following his retirement from the Federal Bureau of Investigations. In the quarter-century that has elapsed since then, we have grown to become one of the most reputable and capable law firms serving the Mississippi Gulf Coast and South Mississippi.

We maintain this reputation and tradition by hiring talented attorneys who value stability and community involvement. We continually strive to provide the highest standards of service and performance. We offer legal strategies that are solution-oriented and based in teamwork, integrity and innovation.
