How We're Different

Choosing Chinn & Associates for Your Family Law Matter

Choosing the right Jackson family law firm can be difficult. There are many attorneys out there, many claiming to be “the best.” At Chinn & Associates, we know you are going through some tough times. We want to use our experience and skill to help you resolve whatever issues your family is currently facing. Lead by attorney Mark Chinn, who has four decades of legal experience, our team is prepared to empower you to lead the life you want to lead.

Below are just a few attributes that differentiate Chinn & Associates from other family law firms:

  • Our entire practice is limited solely to family law matters.
  • Utilizing value pricing, we are “mission-oriented” instead of time-oriented, thus giving our clients the best chance at speedier, more effective results.
  • Our pricing method creates a certainty as to the amount that will be charged, eliminating the uncertainty of the hourly billing method employed by so many firms.
  • We have a “cap” on the total amount of fees we charge, thus assuming the burden for concluding litigation favorably and expeditiously.
  • We employ case management software and have special systems and procedures in place that are designed to facilitate the efficiency and excellence of our legal product.
  • We provide all clients with personal cell phone numbers and encourage 24-hour per day contact as necessary through phone, text, or email – at no extra cost to the client.
  • We have standard, post file closing follow up at key dates to assist clients in navigating post file closing issues.

Our firm has received such recognitions as:

  • A perfect 5.0 Preeminent® rating with the most respected legal rating entity, Martindale-Hubbell®.
  • Named “Family Law Firm of the Year in Mississippi” by Corporate INTL Magazine, four years in a row.

  1. Author and co-author of six books on family law and divorce.
