You may be at your lowest point—right now. Whether you are struggling to recover from a serious injury or you are desperately scrambling to save your reputation and life after having been charged with a crime, this time—every day, every hour, every minute—is critical. You didn’t think that you would ever be facing this legal problem; you didn’t think that you would ever need to talk with a lawyer—but now you do, and timing is of the essence.
The personal injury and criminal defense lawyers at The Stroud Law Firm can help you. We are a small firm located in Southaven, Mississippi; our size allows us to dedicate ourselves fully to each person who walks through our door while delivering the same competitive results that the bigger firms boast.
Unfortunately, people often trust that they will be taken care of by the city prosecutor or the public defender’s office in criminal matters, or that the attorney with the best TV commercial will look after them and help them in their injury case. Unfortunately, this is not the case. While it is true that the legal/court system is in place to insure that you have your “day in court” and that you are not taken advantage of by big business and corporate interests, it is imperative that you carefully select your legal counsel, so that you have a strong advocate at your side that you can trust.
At The Stroud Law Firm, we don’t take your trust lightly. Trust is something that should be earned through action. Through the years, we have earned our clients’ trust, fighting for justice and client well-being from start to finish. We build lasting relationships with our clients, and we are proud to say that a majority of our new client business is through referrals from former clients. Compassion for our clients does not end with the conclusion of your case; you will always have a friend to call upon with our team our attorneys and support staff.
The idea of taking a case to trial can be very scary, plain and simple. However, if that is what it takes to get you the outcome that you deserve, then we are not afraid to do so. In fact, we won’t take a case unless we believe that we could take it to trial and win it, based on all the facts. We realize that hiring a lawyer to represent you in your personal injury or criminal case is a huge commitment, and we are mindful of your time, energy, and money. We won’t sugar coat anything; if we don’t think you have a chance of winning your case, we will tell you and save you the hassle and resources. On the other hand, if we do think you have a strong chance of winning, we will be by your side every step of the way.
While we are located in Southaven, we have proudly represented people all across DeSoto County, in cities such as Horn Lake, Olive Branch, Holly Springs, Hernando, Nesbit, Walls, and Tunica. If you are suffering from serious injuries anywhere in North Mississippi or the Memphis metro area, we can help you. After all, you are our priority.
Personal Injury: Legal Guidance and Representation to Heal the Injured
Most people only think of the physical pain that accompanies an injury, but the truth is, injuries have a much further reach that affects all aspects of your life. In addition to the physical effects it can have, an injury can affect your emotional and your financial well-being as well as your relationships with others.
If you are suffering from an injury, you may be temporarily unable to return to work. This means that you have less income to use to pay an ever growing number of bills. Depending on the type of accident you were involved in, you may have hefty repair bills and/or medical bills that you now have to finance. You may find yourself missing out on life’s enjoyments such as your granddaughter’s birthday party, the annual girl’s getaway, or the company excursion. Even if you are back at work, you may notice that tasks that you were able to accomplish easily before the accident are now a challenge, and you may find yourself in chronic pain.
Regardless of your unique situation, one thing is certain: you are entitled to compensation for the injuries and damages caused by the negligence of another. Compensation is recoverable for the following:
- Pain and suffering
- Permanent injury or disfigurement
- Medical bills
- Future medical bills
- Lost wages
- Future lost wages
- Property damage
- Emotional trauma
Whether you have been injured due to an auto accident, liability accident, medical malpractice, nursing home negligence, slip and fall, workplace accident, or any other misfortune, The Stroud Law Firm will stand by your side. The legal system—especially that pertaining to the personal injury process—is a complex one and can be very unfriendly to those who are unfamiliar with it. We are here to guide you through this system and to help you to feel whole again—to help you put the pieces of your life back together again.
Criminal Defense: Fighting for the Innocence and Good of All People
If you have been charged with a crime, it seems as though the rug has been pulled out from underneath you and your life has been turned upside down. Many people who once stood beside you may now be shying away. You probably don’t know where to turn; you feel like no one is on your side.
At The Stroud Law Firm, we believe that you deserve experienced and skilled legal representation, just as everyone does. As criminal defense attorneys with strong beliefs in the justice system, we believe that all persons are innocent until PROVEN guilty as opposed to the unspoken belief by many law enforcement/governmental agencies that an arrest and charges equal a presumption that you are guilty unless proven innocent. Our clients tell us that after being charged with a crime, it seems like no one will listen to them. If you retain our firm to assist you, you will once again have a voice, and we will make sure your voice is heard.
We are not afraid to file an appeal and take a case to a higher court if our clients don’t get the justice they deserve in a lower court’s ruling. We have much experience in taking criminal defense cases to court—experience that you need and deserve at this time in your life. We have handled a variety of criminal charges, from domestic violence/simple assault to drug charges (possession or marijuana or paraphernalia) to DUIs to shoplifting. Call us today to find out how we can help you with your specific case.
