Everyone has a lapse in judgment and/or makes a mistake at some point in their life. If that mistake led to a criminal charge, you need to hire an experienced criminal trial lawyer now to protect your constitutional rights and start preparing your criminal defense. If you've been charged with a crime, the police have already started their investigation, they already have most, if not all of their evidence and your constitutional or legal rights may have been impinged upon. In any case, the judge, jury and/or prosecutor has nothing stopping them from thinking you are guilty of all charges and deserve the maximum penalty, unless you have a criminal defense attorney to fight for your best interest.
Workers Compensation Attorneys
Our Ocean Springs workers comp lawyers help victims and families throughout Mississippi receive just compensation for injuries that happened at work. Workers compensation is the exclusive remedy for workers injured on the job where workers compensation insurance exists. This means that if you are injured on the job, you cannot sue your employer directly and must have a workers comp claim instead. Some potential exceptions exist in cases where your employer committed willful negligence, failed to maintain workers compensation insurance, or was too small to be required to have workers compensation insurance. If you broke a bone, injured your back, dislocated a joint, received a burn injury or became disabled because of an injury at work, then you need to contact a workers comp lawyer immediately.

Mediators & Dispute Resolution Neutrals
The attorneys at Haug & Farrar also serve as independent, unbiased and neutral mediators for divorces, personal injury negotiations, insurance disputes, business & commercial litigation matters, and employer-employee disagreements. Sometimes two parties cannot find a common ground. It is the job of a neutral mediator to help each party work through their issues for the common good, make compromises, or concessions, if necessary, to save each party from the unreasonably high cost of continuing litigation or impending unpredictable nature of taking the case or issues to a judge or jury trial.
