As one of the largest plaintiffs’ personal injury law firms in the state, we consider it our duty and our honor to serve the people of our communities, and to uphold their rights in court. Our reputation is such that other law firms turn to us when they need legal counsel, and our business has grown through the years because of the referrals of these attorneys, who trust us with their needs and the needs of their clients. We are the firm you can trust when there are challenges ahead.Our Mission, and our promises to youAt Merkel & Cocke, our mission is to provide the highest-quality legal services to our clients, tailored to their unique needs, and handled with discretion and care. We promise our clients we will:Listen to the needs and goals of our clients before creating any strategiesBe transparent in our actions and our choicesBe in contact with our clients at all timesRemember that the most important part of any case is the clientAlways act with integrity, and with the highest regard to ethical standardsTreat every client with respect and compassionThoroughly prepare every case in case trial becomes necessaryWe understand that our clients are often scared, angry and frustrated, with real-world concerns about how they will move forward after a serious injury or act of malpractice. We also understand that long, drawn-out court battles may be necessary, but they are rarely preferable. Our firm puts its considerable resources into every case, so that we can work efficiently on our clients’ behalves without sacrificing the detail and care they have come to expect from us.Why choose Merkel & Cocke to represent you in court?At Merkel & Cocke, we know that the best chance our clients have at a successful outcome comes from our willingness to do the hard work which comes first. This is why we have some of the most impressive verdicts and settlements on record. We have been able to achieve these successes because of the way our attorneys practice the law.We believe in a team approach to problem solving. Because each one of our attorneys has different experiences and perspectives, each case we handle is reviewed through those experiences and perspectives. This allows our team to anticipate and resolve potential problems before they ever arise. Our clients’ cases are examined in new and creative ways every time, yet still rooted in the experience and skill people have come to expect from our firm.We know that as times change, we must adapt to those changes for the benefits of our clients. We utilize state-of-the-art technologies when we prepare and try cases. This allows us to access and analyze all documentation – such as discovery, photographic evidence, witness statements, and medical assessments and records – efficiently and effectively. As a result, we can process your claims more quickly than you might expect, which can reduce the time you may have to wait to recover your losses.We understand the importance of being able to try a case successfully. Each member of our team is an experienced litigator, and we are admitted to practice in every state and federal court in Mississippi. Many of our members are also admitted to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court, U.S. Tax Court, the U.S. Court of Appeals, Fifth Circuit and Eighth Circuit, and in the surrounding states. Our peers across the aisle know that we will stop at nothing until our clients’ needs are met, because their best interests are our only interests. This reputation benefits our clients who wish to avoid trial, too: because we are unafraid to take on powerful adversaries in the courtroom, our clients are often provided better, more just settlement offers right from the start.Where Mississippi turns for honest, practical guidanceFor more than 35 years, Merkel & Cocke has been the firm you can trust to do right by you and your loved ones.
