    A Skilled Mississippi Divorce Attorney

    I graduated from Mississippi College School of Law in Jackson, in 2014, and received my Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Pittsburgh, in Pittsburgh, PA, in 2010. While attending Mississippi College School of Law, I participated in the Youth Court Clinic, where I represented adolescent clients in various criminal and DHS matters.

    From the beginning of my law school career, I knew I would eventually want to devote a significant amount of my practice time to family law matters. I have seen firsthand how difficult divorce and separation can be on a family. I take pride in taking the time to listen to clients' needs and being there to help them through what may be the most difficult time in their lives.

    Whatever the task, I strive to perform my best for each and every client. Call Shows & Smith Law Firm PLLC at (601) 809-4144 to schedule your free initial consultation to discuss your legal issues.
